By Road:
Leave King's Lynn on the A149, signed to Sandringham / Hunstanton and look out for the brown signs on the A149 Snettisham and Dersingham bypass. The reserve is signposted down Beach Road from the A149 Snettisham and Dersingham bypass. Continue down Beach Road for about 1 mile (1.6km) and the reserve is signposted on your left.
There is no easy access to the nature reserve because of steps and a rough path. Visitors with limited mobility may drive to the first hide along a rough, gated track through the chalet park - please contact the Snettisham office five working days before your visit to obtain an access permit.

By Public Transport:
From King's Lynn station it is 13 miles to RSPB Snettisham Nature Reserve.
