Bunwell is a parish (population 1024 in 2001) situated in the county of Norfolk, England, approximately 7 miles southeast of Attleborough. The parish includes the hamlets of Bunwell Hill, Bunwell Street, Great Green, Little Green and Low Common. Often overlooked as visitors head for quaint New Buckenham, this oddly widespread community is centred on a church, primary school, village hall and homes of mixed heritage—although some clearly date from Shakespearean times. Most residents commute to the city of Norwich or town of Diss.

The South Norfolk District electoral ward of the same name stretches south to Tibenham with a total population taken at the 2011 census of 2,737.
