Burnham Market has had the nickname ‘Chelsea on Sea’ for many years. It is one of seven Burnhams in the area – the others being: Burnham Overy Town, Burnham Overy Staithe, Burnham Norton, Burnham Sutton, Burnham Ulph and Burnham Deepdale.
We have recently been very lucky to have had many Royal visits lately from Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Award winning Farmer’s Market at Creake Abbey, held on the first Saturday of every month. With over 50 stall holders with lots of fresh local produce.

Pensthorpe Nature Reserve in Fakenham was voted Norfolk’s Best Large Attraction in both 2014 and 2015, and is an exciting day out for all the family.

The main attraction to the village is ‘The Hoste Arms’, named after Captain William Hoste who was born locally (1780).
The Hoste’s popularity has grown over the years and attracts many celebrities from across the country. It now also owns other hotels in the village; The Railway Inn and Vine House Boutique.
Or if you are thinking of a Coastal Getaway for a few days we have plenty of beautiful holiday cottages in the village.
Brazenhead Gallery/Bookshop- Rooms are full of secondhand books (great for men to browse whilst their wives are shopping!)
If you only do one thing in Burnham Market then get off the beaten path and visit Brancaster or Holkham Beach for walking.
The award-winning beach that is Holkham is only three miles from Burnham and is very popular with dog walkers and horse riders.
Each year the Queen’s Household Calvary come to the beach and the horses are given a well deserved break. Watching then enjoy swimming in the sea is a delight.
It’s also Amanda Holden’s favourite beach to visit when she’s in Norfolk.
After you’ve had a long beach walk with your four-legged friends and a spot of lunch in the village we look forward to seeing you pop in for a well-deserved shopping trip here at Joules of Burnham Market!
