Worlingham is a village and civil parish in the Waveney district of Suffolk, England about 1.3mi east of Beccles. As of 2008 it is effectively a suburb of Beccles. Worlingham has a limited range of shops including a local grocery and sub-post office, hairdresser, fish and chip shop, pharmacy and small newsagent. There are three parks.
The local church, which is approximately 900 years old, is dedicated to All Saints. Worlingham Hall is an 18th-century country house now converted to a country house hotel. Worlingham primary school serves the village and children attend Sir John Leman High School in Beccles from age 11. A community steering group has been created to bring life back into the village by giving the local children and teenagers places to go and do activities.
