About the location


Downham Market 6 miles; King’s Lynn 10 miles.

The rural Norfolk village of Wiggenhall St Mary Magdalen sits on the banks of the River Great Ouse, within an area known as The Fens. The village is known locally as Magdalen, and the area is characterised by the level agricultural fields, which are protected by drainage channels that carry water out to the Wash. Wiggenhall St Mary Magdalen is situated 6 miles from the market town of Downham Market and 10 miles from the historic maritime town of King's Lynn, which has been used as the location for several period films and TV productions. The West and North Norfolk coastline are within easy travelling distance, where you will find many villages and towns, including Hunstanton, and several RSPB sites. Inland is Sandringham Estate, where house tours and attractive gardens can be enjoyed, whilst travelling in the opposite direction will bring you to Wisbech, Ely, Peterborough and Cambridge. Wiggenhall St Mary Magdalen is an ideal base for exploring Norfolk.
