It is close to the royal Sandringham Estate and just 4 miles from Anmer where the new holiday house of Prince William & Kate !

The village of Bircham lies on the border of the Sandringham Estate, about 7 miles from the north Norfolk coast and comprises of three parishes:- Great Bircham, Bircham Tofts and Bircham Newton.

Great Bircham has a good farm shop with deli, a church, St Mary's and the Kings Head Hotel with award winning restaurant.

There is also a fully restored windmill, considered to be the only working windmill in this part of the county, where visitors can climb five floors up to the fan stage and admire the view.

The mill also has a bakery, tea room, gift shop, small childrens' farm and cycle hire centre. Bircham Newton has a small, private trout fishing lake and the Church of All Saints, one of the smallest in the county, with no porch, few windows and Victorian box pews.

Nelson's daughter Horatia married Philip Ward, who was the rector and brought up a large family at Church Farm. Bircham Tofts is recorded in the Domesday book as Stoftstan, referring to its stony soil and merged with Bircham Newton in 1719.

The closest train station is at King's Lynn providing direct rail links to Cambridge and London Kings Cross.
