Burnham Norton is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, one of the Burnhams, an adjacent group in the northernmost part of Norfolk, on the A149 some 2 km north of the larger village of Burnham Market, 35 km north-east of King's Lynn and 60 km north-west of Norwich. "Burnham" means "Homestead/village on the River Burn" or perhaps, "hemmed-in land on the River Burn". "Norton", meaning "North farm/settlement", distinguishes it from the other Norfolk Burnhams.
The village is located close to the coast, and overlooks the tidal Norton Marshes and Scolt Head Island NNR.
