Burnham Deepdale is a village on the north coast of the English county of Norfolk. Prior to 1935 it was a separate civil parish. Since 1935 it has been part of the civil parish of Brancaster, together with Brancaster Staithe and Brancaster itself. The three villages form a more or less continuous settlement along the A149 at the edge of the Brancaster Manor marshland and the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve.

Burnham Deepdale is located about 1 1/2 miles (3 km) west of Burnham Market, 22 miles (35 km) northeast of the town of King's Lynn and 31 miles (50 km) northwest of the city of Norwich.

Burnham Deepdale is one of the original seven "Burnhams", which include Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy, Burnham Sutton, Burnham Thorpe, Burnham Ulph and Burnham Westgate.
