East Tuddenham is a village in the Breckland district of mid-Norfolk, East Anglia, England in the United Kingdom. It is around 10 miles (16 km) from the city of Norwich, and is close to the town of East Dereham. The village has an area of 847 hectares (3.27 square miles) with an estimated population of 515, according to the Breckland 2007 yearbook.[3] The population at the 2011 census was 517 in 190 households.

The village is served by All Saints church, now within the benefice of Mattishall.

East Tuddenham is bisected by Mattishall Road, which links to the A47 eastwards and eventually to East Dereham westwards (firstly passing through Mattishall, Clint Green and Yaxham).

East Tuddenham is surrounded by arable land cultivating a variety of crops including wheat, barley, oil seed rape, sugarbeet and potatoes. The village is fortunate to have many public footpaths and local walks including a 12-mile (19 km) walk for ramblers.
