Stanhoe buses

Stanhoe has a daily bus service to Hunstanton and King’s Lynn.

The Go To Town 21 service is operated by West Norfolk Community Transport (WNCT). The vehicles are wheelchair-accessible minibuses. Bus passes are valid on the Go to Town buses, or you can buy a daily, weekly or monthly ticket.

Both to and from King’s Lynn there are three buses every weekday. On the later services returning from King’s Lynn, passengers must ask the driver to stop at Stanhoe.

The official Stanhoe stop is by the pond, but you can hail the bus anywhere in the village as long as you know which way it’s heading (more about this below).

The timetable (see link above) is somewhat complicated, since the buses make a loop between Stanhoe and Docking. Depending on the time of day, the bus to King’s Lynn stops at Stanhoe either before or after visiting Docking – and similarly on the way home.

Stanhoe Parish Council subsidises the service, which may disappear in the future if it is not used. Before the current service started in 2017, Stanhoe had not had a regular bus since 2011, and even that was only once a week.
