Barnham-Broome is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. The village is situated on the River Yare, 9 miles (15 km) west of Norwich and 4 miles (6 km) northwest of Wymondham.

The civil parish has an area of 7.24 km2 and in the 2001 UK census had a population of 552 in 220 households, increasing to 590 at the 2011 UK census. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the District of South Norfolk.

Barnham-Broome had two ancient or ecclesiastical parishes: Barnham-Broome St. Michael and Barnham-Broome St. Peter and St. Paul. Neither became civil parishes. The only reference found that mentions them is Francis White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory, of Norfolk 1854. Both have been redirected here along with Bixton which White states was a hamlet in the parish.
