The Coasthopper bus shuttle was saved in 2008 and replaced with two routes that run from Hunstanton to Wells-next-sea (CoastLiner) and Wells through to Cromer (CoastHopper). The service now operates with larger vehicles and an hourly timetable and is an excellent way to explore the coast with stops at all the major villages including Holme-Next-Sea, Thornham, Brancaster, the Burnhams, Holkham and beyond. Transfer times are quick and single and multi day price passes are very reasonable. If travelling beyond Wells you will need to make a quick change at the Wells Buttlands stop.
The service runs from approximately 8am to 7pm so really is a day time option but good if you are considering a lovely lunch and a bottle of wine on the coast. You can find a great map of the route as well as a downloadable timetable at the LoveNorfolk website just go here https://lovenorfolk.co.uk/norfolk-coastliner-coasthopper/
