Snettisham is a village on the west coast of Norfolk, England, about 2 miles north of the Royal Family's residence at Sandringham.

St. Mary's Church has a 14th century, 200 ft. high spire. Nikolaus Pevsner[?] called it "perhaps the most exciting decorated church in Norfolk".

RSPB Snettisham is a nature reserve in the care of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. It consists of bird lagoons and bird observation hides, including a rotary hide.

The area faces The Wash which is a paradise for birds in its own right. The Snettisham coast is "where Norfolk stares at Lincolnshire", as the local saying goes. This means that, since Norfolk is a county with a very long coastline, it is unusual to be looking across the square-mouthed estuary of The Wash at the county of Lincolnshire, only 15 miles away, as the crow flies.
