Great Livermere is a village and civil parish in the St. Edmundsbury District of Suffolk in eastern England. Located around four miles north-east of Bury St. Edmunds, in 2005 its population was 230.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Great Livermere from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"LIVERMERE-MAGNA, a village and a parish in Thingoe [registration] district, Suffolk. The village stands 3½ miles W by N of Ixworth, and 5 NNE of Bury St. Edmunds [railway] station; and has a post office under Bury St. Edmunds. The parish comprises 1,549 acres. Real property: £1,951. Population: 290. Houses: 64. The manor, with Livermere Hall, belonged to the Duke of Grafton; passed to the Cokes, the Actons, and Admiral Sir G. N. Broke Middleton, Bart; and belongs now to Miss Broke. The Hall is a handsome edifice; was built by the Duke of Grafton; and stands in a fine park, which extends into Livermere-Parva, and is traversed by a fine stream. The living is a rectory, united with the rectory of Livermere-Parva, in the diocese of Ely. Value: £443. Patron: Miss Broke. The church is a small thatched building, with a tower. There is a town estate for poor widows, yielding about £39 a year."

The village and parish of Little Livermere is discussed separately because it was in the Blackbourn Hundred.
