Travel Instructions 2018


We do want you to have a safe and enjoyable journey to camp. Please read these notes carefully and if in doubt about anything, please make further enquiries before you begin your journey.

ARRIVAL TIME: Please do your best to arrive at the campsite between 3pm and 5pm. Tea is the first meal served on arrival day at 6pm.

JOURNEY BY ROAD: East Runton is on the A149 (coast road), just west of Cromer. On entering the village from Cromer, turn left, (right if coming from Sheringham). The lane is sign posted with an official “Camping/Caravan” brown sign. Follow this lane for about a mile. You will go under the railway line and pass village green areas (one with a duck pond). The lane narrows considerably and Manor Farm (NR27 9PR) is on the left. The campsites are just beyond the farm. Teens are in the first field on the left, Warriors are opposite, their entrance being just off the track on the right.

If you are approaching Cromer along the A148 from King’s Lynn, you will see “Manor Farm” sign posted down a lane on the left, (just after the right turn to Fellbrigg). However, please note the lane from the A148 to the farm is very narrow. You will see the camps as you come down the lane. (You may find the access easier if you go down to the village green and turn round).

BY COACH: National Express coaches run to Norwich. (The London service leaves Victoria Coach Station at 10:00 and 12:00 arriving in Norwich at 13:25 and 15:15) From Norwich, use the train service to Cromer, which leaves Norwich Rail Station at 45 minutes past the hour (journey time 45 minutes approx.). Alternatively, take the X44 bus service from stand M in Norwich Bus Station to East Runton Stores, which leaves at 20 mins and 50 mins past each hour (journey time 75 minutes approx.).

BY TRAIN: Trains to Cromer connect with Inter-city services at Norwich. (Connecting train times are 14:45, and 15:45). London trains run from Liverpool Street. (We recommend the 12:30, 13:00 or 13:30 trains). We will have staff at the station to meet the trains arriving in Cromer at 15:29 and 16:33. Please let us know if you are coming by train. 

FOR ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORT TRAVEL: The camp site is approximately 20 minutes walk from the railway station along a farm lane. We are not providing a coach at a set time this year. Campers can either find their own way to the campsite, or, if preferred, can be met at the station and they and/or their luggage can be transported to the site. We will meet all campers travelling on the trains coming into Cromer at the times indicated above. Leaders or staff will accompany them to the camp site. For those travelling on the local bus service, alight at East Runton Stores and phone the Camp mobile phone number. CAMPERS WISHING TO BE MET MUST GIVE CLEAR DETAILS ON THE TRAVEL REPLY FORM.

To reach the campsite from Cromer: Walk up the hill from the station (Holt Road) until you reach Sandy Lane (the first road on the right after leaving the railway station). Go down Sandy Lane to the end of the road (by Anglian Water), then continue along the rough farm track (Newstead Lane). The camp fields are at the end of this lane, just after you have gone under the railway line.

RETURN JOURNEY: We will ensure that all campers and their luggage are in Cromer for the 09:55 train, arriving in Norwich at 10:41 (and London at 12:55).
National Express coaches leave Norwich at 10.45 and 13.15, arriving in London at 14:20 and 16:40.

If you would like a packed lunch for the return journey, then please indicate this on your travel form. Thank you. On the last week, leaders are welcome to stay and help with work on the camp site.

We trust you all have a safe journey. See you in Norfolk.
