Burnham Market is the perfect place to shop, dine or simply stay awhile and revel in being part of the traditional village atmosphere. Largest of the Burnham villages, Burnham Market has grown from the merger of the three of the original Burnham villages, Burnham Sutton, Burnham Ulph and Burnham Westgate.
Situated a stone’s throw away from the glorious North Norfolk coastline with its many stunning beaches, wide open spaces, some of the best coastal walks, renowned restaurants and hotels, Burnham Market is the perfect place to shop, dine or simply stay awhile and revel in being part of the traditional village atmosphere.
So many towns in Britain today are dominated by multiples, with one high street looking very much like another. Here in Burnham Market we not only have a traditional post office, butcher, hardware shop, fish shop and chemist for all the necessities of everyday life, we also have over 30 highly original independent and specialist shops , beauty salons, and galleries, selling a wide range of exciting deli products, vibrant and stylish accessories for home and garden, paintings, prints and unique coastal artworks,trendy and traditional clothes for all the family, and books old and new.
There is an exciting array of eateries serving everything from cappuccino to sea bass, afternoon tea and cakes to a club sandwich, and yummy bar food or fine dining at the famed Hoste , (it really is the hub of the village), and all are welcome. You might even spot a celebrity or two there. You can cosy up in the front bar and watch the world go by – and do bring your dog!
Burnham Market truly has something for everyone, a warm welcome awaits you!
Just over a mile from the glorious coast, Burnham Market is close to the mouth of the River Burn and the name Burnham probably derives from this. With its open green surrounded by characterful flint cottage, this charming village is extremely popular with holiday makers and as well as second home owners and is sometimes attributed the name ‘Chelsea-on-sea’.
The village provides a great mix of renowned restaurants, pubs including the Hoste Arms and The Nelson and a special mix of local shops including a traditional post office, butcher, hardware shop, fish shop and around 30 highly original independent and specialist shops, deli’s, beauty salons, and galleries selling paintings, prints and unique coastal artworks.
Whether you’re staying over or just visiting for a few hours, this is a lovely village to spend time relaxing, browsing around the shops and soaking up the atmosphere of a beautiful and bustling village.
