Rebellion Way

A favourite for cyclists, the Rebellion Way is an impressive 232 mile/ 373 km cycle adventure that takes you on a journey across Norfolk’s most scenic landscapes.

Featuring an exciting blend of peaceful flat back roads, byways, cycle paths & bridleways, the Rebellion Way is perfect for cyclists of all skill levels. Both on and off the beaten track, it’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the wild side of Norfolk. 

This diverse cycle loop showcases some of Norfolk's most famous landmarks including Norwich castle, Thetford forest and magnificent stately homes including Holkham Hall and the royal residence Sandringham. You’ll also pedal past historical sites such as Blickling Estate, once home to Anne Boleyn and coastal pathways offering sweeping views of sandy beaches and pretty seaside towns like Wells-next-the-Sea to name a few. 

The name Rebellion Way, was inspired by 2 historic uprisings led by Boudicca and Robert Kett. Boudicca was the fierce warrior queen of the Iceni tribe who famously revolted against Roman rule. Remnants of her ancient settlement still stand along the cycle route. On the return leg, as the route follows in the footsteps of Robert Kett, who in 1549 marched with his followers from Wymondham to Norwich in protest against land enclosures, you’ll find yourself transported back in time for a wild ride through history. 

As part of the European Regional Development Fund EXPERIENCE project, the Rebellion Way aims to promote sustainable off-season tourism across England & France. Cycle UK is on board too, making sure hospitality businesses along the route are ready to welcome you with open arms and cyclist-friendly amenities.
