Marham is a parish of the Kings Lynn and West Norfolk district council, which is responsible for the most local services. Norfolk County Council is in charge of roads, some schools, and social services, and the county councillor is Richard Toby Coke (UKIP). For Westminster elections Marham forms part of the South West Norfolk constituency, represented by Elizabeth Truss (Conservative).
Holy Trinity Anglican church dates from Norman times and has a Norman doorway. Since its original design, each part of the building has been reconstructed. The doorway has a single-scallop shaft on each side. The semi-circular arch is high enough to allow the tympanum within to be filled with a checkered "lozenge" pattern.
