Coltishall is a village (population 1405) on the River Buremarker, west of Wroxhammarker, in the Englishmarker county of Norfolk, within the Norfolk Broads.

Coltishall was a place of note even when the Domesday Book was compiled. For 250 years it was a centre of the malting industry. Many Norfolk wherries (trading ships) were built here.

Between 1779 and 1912, it was possible to navigate the River Bure all the way to Aylshammarker, but now the limit of navigation for powered craft is just south of Coltishall.

The nearby RAF Coltishallmarker played an important role during World War II, and afterwards, but was finally closed in December 2006 to be converted into a prison.

Horstead watermill on the Coltishall-Horstead river border was one of the most photographed mills in the county until it burned down in 1963.
