The nearest public transport is the Sanders #34 bus from Sea Palling about 1 mile from Waxham. This operates between North Walsham and Stalham, 2 or 3 times a day each way Mon-Fri and once on a Saturday. There are fairly regular connections to Norwich from Stalham or North Walsham by bus (and train at North Walsham)
