Brampton is a village in the English county of Suffolk, located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) north east of Halesworth, 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Beccles and 9 miles (14 km) south west of Lowestoft. The mid-2005 population estimate for Brampton with Stoven parish was 460.[1] Stoven is located just to the east, Uggeshall to the south-east and Shadingfield to the north.

The village is served by Brampton railway station, around 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of the village, on the Ipswich-Lowestoft East Suffolk Line. The A145 road divides the village and passes the village church which is dedicated to St Peter.[2] Areas of housing, including at Brampton Street, are clustered on both sides of the road throughout the parish area.

Brampton Primary School serves the village and the surrounding area.[3]

The Latitude music festival takes place at Henham Park 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Brampton.

Brampton Hall is a listed country house built in 1794 of red brick for the Leman family who had long associations in the area.[4] The previous Brampton Hall burned down in 1733.[5] A 16th century farmhouse was built on the same site, known as Brampton Old Hall. Both buildings are Grade II listed.[6][7]
