Docking is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk and contains the highest point in North West Norfolk. It covers an area of and had a population of 1,150 in 469 households as of the 2001 census. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.

Docking has many small businesses including antique clothing and giftware, tea rooms, a fish and chip shop and its own tattoo studio. The blacksmith's forge is near the village pond but is now no longer active.

The village church is St Mary the Virgin which is mostly 14th and 15th century in date with Victorian restorations. There is currently a village archaeological project to locate the site of a lost priory believed to have been in the area during the 13th and 14th century. One theory is that the village church may have been the site of the former priory church.
