Lying either side of the Norwich-Bungay road, B1332, it is seven miles from both Norwich and Bungay. There are both old and new houses, the oldest being Porch House, which can be found in The Street.
Brooke's Baptist Chapel was built in 1831 and in 1924 the Methodist Chapel was built. Its church has a round tower with a Saxon foundation and was built using flints and dedicated to St Peter.
There is a real sense of village life within Brooke with many organisations catering for all ages.
