North Wootton is close to the famous North Norfolk coastline, approximately three miles North West of King's Lynn town.

Its proximity to the nearby village of Castle Rising implies connections to royalty. Former marshland drained by the Dutch links the village to the coast.

Predominantly a farming village, North Wootton is now experiencing a period of growth owing to new housing developments.

The old part of the village is located around the small village green consisting of a few houses, the old Schoolhouse and a former Post Office (now closed).

With the arrival of the railway, a station (now disused) was built in the west of the village, leading to the Marsh. The old station waiting room is still standing, though now part of a private house.

The signal box is part of the local Scout Group opposite. The railway (Royal Line) connected King's Lynn to Hunstanton, with a station (Wolverton) serving Sandringham.

The old 'Red Cat Hotel', sited next door, is still run today by the same Irwin family.

West Norfolk Rugby Club is also situated in the village growing year on year.
