Visit Martham, a large village in the heart of Greater Yarmouth

Martham is a charming village with a large village green located nine miles to the north of Great Yarmouth within the Broads National Park.

Martham has a fantastic array of amenities including shops, pubs, a lovely church, play and leisure facilities and a well-used library.

Martham is home to the Norfolk Broads Classic, a paddleboard race which takes place in July along the river Thurne which flows around the northern edge of the village. Day boat hire and fishing are also on offer and some great walks start from the village.

Martham has a real community vibe with villagers and visitors feeling part of the action. Martham hosts a number of popular annual events including their spring Scarecrow Festival and May Fair, summer carnival and autumn Beer Festival.

Martham Broad towards West Somerton, run by Norfolk Wildlife Trust is a haven for nature lovers, ramblers and water enthusiasts. For more detailed information have a look at the Martham Broad Review. Stately common cranes use the reserve and can be seen flying over. The site is excellent for swallowtails and many other invertebrates in summer, including Norfolk hawker. Otters are present and Chinese water deer are relatively easily observed. Several bat species occur. Good numbers of wintering wildfowl frequent the Broad and surrounding fields. Hen harrier and merlin are also possible in the winter months, and barn owl is often seen. Visitors can only access the reserve from footpaths leading from the staithe at West Somerton.
