A coastal walk in Norfolk has been named among the most "breathtaking" in the UK, according to a new study. 

Blakeney Point, on the north Norfolk coast, featured in a list of the nine most stunning coastal locations across the country, placing number six in the rankings. 

The study, conducted by outdoor retailer Fitflop, looked at scenic walks and cliffside trails that are most enjoyed for staycations, polling a range of holidaymakers. 

Topping the list was the Abbostbury to Lulworth walk in Dorset, with John O'Groats to Duncansby Head in Scotland coming in second.

The Blakeney Point walk was chosen for its natural beauty, serene setting and ability to spot wildlife such as seal colonies and rare birds.

Earlier this month, the cliffs of Old Hunstanton and the shores of Blakeney were named among the UK's top Instagrammable places in a poll by Sky Mobile.

Old Hunstanton also made the Daily Mail's top 50 most "spellbinding" beaches, recognised for "the amazing striated rock colours in the cliff wall and the shipwreck that you can get close to at low tide".
