Before You Go

Binham Market Cross is one of the best surviving examples of a medieval standing cross in Norfolk.

It stands on the green in the centre of the village, on the site of an annual fair held from the 1100s until the 1950s.

Managed by Binham Parochial Church Council.


Before You Go

Parking: There is a no car park for the cross but it is possible to park on nearby roads. 

Facilities: There are toilets available in the parish church at Binham Priory.

Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome.

Plan a Great Day Out

Any visitor to Binham should also take in the impressive remains of Binham Priory. The nave is virtually complete and is now the parish church.

If you are interested in more Norman history in Norfolk, why not also visit the well-preserved Castle Acre Priory, or the impressive edifice of Castle Rising Castle. You could even visit the tragic Creake Abbey or North Elmham Chapel along the way.
