The Village of Binham in Norfolk
A visitors guide to the historic village of
Binham in Norfolk 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, look
at our Myths and Legend pages to learn more.
This pretty village has a village stores, a
garage 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 miles away.
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.
