Welcome to Hickling

About Hickling© D. Morris

Hickling is a small village set in the beautiful surroundings of the Norfolk Broads and based on the edge of Hickling broad. Its origins date back to at least 1066 and is referred to in the Doomsday book as Hikelinga.

As well as the broad we have two village Inns, a church and chapel, a small primary school and a wonderful nature reserve. We have facilities for sailors, canoeists, wild life enthusiasts and photographers. We also have a recently built new Village hall “Hickling Barn”, all set in tranquil and relaxing surroundings.

Hickling is considered to be one of the top 25 most idyllic places to live in England.
