Swaffham Town Council Home



Swaffham is an attractive, family friendly Norfolk market town which sits at the very northern point of the Brecks, an area of outstanding tranquillity and beauty which stretches across Norfolk & 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; 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 literally the top of the town visiting the Green Britain Centre and unique wind turbine to the Swaffham Museum with its many artifacts and stories through the ages; 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.

The Councillors, Town Clerk and his staff are always willing to listen to your concerns and do all in their power to support you.

If you would like to contact the Town Council please email reception@swaffhamtowncouncil.gov.uk , telephone 01760 722922 or call in the the Town Hall. Office entrances can be found on Cley Rd. We are open Mon-Fri 9am-1pm.
