Welcome to Swaffham Town Council

Swaffham is an attractive, family friendly Norfolk market town which sits at the very northern point of the Brecklands, an area of outstanding tranquillity and beauty which stretches across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Swaffham’s fine Georgian buildings are a reminder that this town has long been a commercial centre – reputed to be a one-time favourite of Lord Nelson – there is a bustling Saturday Market that has been around for over 800 years; the church of St Peter and Paul dominates the skyline and the town is a great place to do some shopping, grab a bite to eat, a drink or just relax and enjoy the Norfolk way of life.

There is plenty to see and do in Swaffham; from a variety of independent shops to the Swaffham Museum with its many artefacts and stories through the ages including Swaffham’s connection to Howard Carter; there is something for everyone.

Swaffham Town Council, consisting of 13 local Councillors led by the Mayor, are eager to share with you, on this website, the work undertaken on their residents’ behalf.
