The picturesque village centre of Trunch features the fine medieval Church of St Botolph and typical old Norfolk flintstone houses. There are many public footpaths and quiet lanes, very inviting for (dog) walkers, bird watchers and conservationists.

The Church of St Botolph is famous for its carved and painted wood canopy (one of four to still exist in England) also features a hammerbeam roof with carved angels, as well as medieval misericords under the seats in the chancel. Lord Nelsons daughter is said to have been married here.
