There are two schools of thought about Norfolk - (a) you don't need a car; (b) you do need a car. I subscribe to the latter.
Though the island is only 8 kilometres by about four, you'll miss out on a lot if you don't have a vehicle. There's many a lookout at the end of a dead end street, there's interesting places that you'll have no access to if you don't have one.
Mind you, the islanders know that too which is why there's a lot of hire car companies for such a small island!
Ours came as part of a package and was waiting for us when we arrived at our accommodation and we were able to leave it at the airport without checking it back out again.
In fact, when you're on Norfolk, no-one bothers to lock their car. The easiest job on the island is being a policeman.
