Flempton is a village and civil parish in the St Edmundsbury district of Suffolk, England. It is on the A1101 road from Bury St Edmunds. Flempton takes its name from the Flemings who came from Flanders and settled the area in Anglo-Saxon times.

St Catherine's church is a grade II* listed building whose tower was rebuilt in 1839 after it collapsed.[1]

The East of England Regional Assembly is based in Flempton House. The village pub is The Greyhound on The Green. It is close to the River Lark.

Flempton Forge and nearby Forge Cottage are grade II listed buildings on The Green.[2][3] The forge has recently been converted to a holiday let.[4]
