The civil parish has an area of 11.84 km2 (4.57 sq mi) and in the 2001 UK census had a population of 3,126 in 1,267 households, the population increasing at the 2011 UK census to 3,569. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the District of Great Yarmouth.
The village has several Georgian houses, a large village green, covering three areas of greensward and two duck ponds. Near St Mary's church Church of England, Ferrygate Lane leads to Martham Ferry, where an unusual floating swing bridge crosses the River Thurne.
The Saxons settled in Martham around AD601 and gave the village its name, "the ham of the martens", i.e., the home of the polecats.
