Halvergate is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, north of Reedham,[2] between the Rivers Bure and Yare, within The Broads. To the east of the village is the hamlet of Wickhampton and the Halvergate Marshes, an area of drainage marsh which was the site of the first Environmentally Sensitive Area in the United Kingdom in 1987.[3][4]

The parish covers an area of 24.65 km2 (9.52 sq mi) and had a population of 468 in 202 households at the 2001 census,[5] increasing to a population of 607 in 243 households at the 2011 Census. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of Broadland. The civil parish includes the village of Tunstall.

The long distance footpath named the Weavers' Way passes through Halvergate, and this provides one of the few modes of access to Berney Arms.

The village has a cricket team that plays in the East Anglian Premier League.
