Buckenham is a small village in the English county of Norfolk situated on the northern bank of the River Yare around 7 miles (11 km) south-east of Norwich. The village is the location of the RSPB Buckenham Marshes nature reserve.

The former parish church, St Nicholas' Church, Buckenham, is now redundant and cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. It dates from the 13th Century and has a rare octagonal tower.[1] The village now lies within the civil parish of Strumpshaw.

Buckenham railway station serves the outlying communities and the RSPB reserve. The station is served by Wherry Lines trains from Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft on weekends only.[2]
