The parish church of St Faith's dates from 13th century and has a relatively long entry in Pevsner's survey of the county's buildings.
Inside the church is Blanche Parry's memorial; Parry was Chief Gentlewoman of Queen Elizabeth's most honourable Privy Chamber and Keeper of Her Majesty’s jewels. It is possible that an altar cloth belonging to the parish church was made from a dress once worn by Queen Elizabeth I of England and given to Blanche Parry. The material of the cloth appears to form part of the clothing of the Queen in the early 17th-century "Rainbow Portrait", attributed to Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger.
Bacton has a relatively large number of listed buildings. The parish church is listed Grade II* and another 16 buildings, barns and monuments from the 17th to 20th centuries are listed as Grade II.
