It's all too easy to head from Norwich to the Norfolk Coast or the Broads. But there is much to enjoy inland as well, as this walk from Aylsham, one of the county's nicest little towns, will prove. It's an easy walk, with a little bit of road walking, but the roads are generally quiet so a good option for well-behaved kids! Allow a bit of time to explore the town as well before heading back.
