About Burnham Market

Over the years Burnham Market has increasingly attracted visitors to its village green centre surrounded by its mix of hostelries, gift shops, antique shops, book shops and delicatessens. It has a very English feel and people just love strolling around hoping for a glimpse of one of the many celebrities who often visit there.

People just like to stroll around the village green area and take in the atmosphere of its unusual and interesting mix of restaurants and shops. Dont forget to visit the two churches at either end of the village, Burnham Westgate Church and All Saints Church.

Try to catch one of the famous Burnham Market summer classical concerts in August; and, if you havent been before, youll love the Craft Fair.

In winter the village takes on a completely different atmosphere as crowds gather for the Christmas lights switch-on, which is usually performed by a celebrity.

DID YOU KNOW... The Goose Beck flows from underneath Burnham Market Church into the market square. It floods the road through the village once every 7 years.
