Binham in Norfolk is located under five miles from the
North Norfolk Coast. Located through a maze of country
lanes is the history-steeped village of Binham dominated
by the large atmospheric remains of a Benedictine
Priory, which sits on the edge of the village surrounded
by the ruins of its monastery. Classical concerts are
held here throughout the year at the Priory and the
grounds of the monastery are believed to be haunted,

This pretty village has a village
stores, a garage, a Butchers & Graziers and a
village inn, The Chequers Inn, with a menu that changes
daily to reflect the fresh produce used. For a larger
range of shops visit the attractive Georgian town of Holt, which is five miles away
or for seaside pursuits the harbour town of Wells-next-the-sea four
From Binham you can visit another historical village
that of medieval Little
Walsingham, a place of pilgrimage for close on a
thousand years. You can take the Wells and Walsingham
Light Railway a narrow gauge steam train that runs
between Little Walsingham and Wells next to Sea.
Its terminus is on the Stiffkey Road just outside Wells.
