Brancaster Beach is just 2 miles from Burnham Market.  Brancaster Beach

Access to Brancaster beach is located down a small minor road off the A149 coast road, signpostedfrom the centre of Brancaster village, next to the church.  There is a large car park at the bottom of the beach road – but beware, the road can flood at high tide so check your tide times before you visit.
