Burnham Norton is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. Burnham Norton is one of the Burnhams, a group of adjacent villages in north Norfolk. It is situated, on the A149, some 2 km north of the larger village of Burnham Market, 10 km west of the small town of Wells-next-the-sea, 35 km northeast of the larger town of King's Lynn, and 60 km northwest of the city of Norwich.

The civil parish has an area of 14.27 km2 and in the 2001 census had a population of 76 in 37 households. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.
