Halvergate is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, north of Reedham, between the Rivers Bure and Yare, within The Broads. To the east of the village is the hamlet of Wickhampton and the Halvergate Marshes, an area of drainage marsh which was the site of the first Environmentally Sensitive Area in the United Kingdom in 1987.


The villages name origin is uncertain possibly, ‘land costing half a heriot’.

For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of Broadland. The civil parish includes the village of Tunstall.

The long distance footpath named the Weavers’ Way passes through Halvergate, and this provides one of the few modes of access to Berney Arms.
