The Norfolk Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 5 furlongs (1,006 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

The event was established in 1843, and it was originally called the New Stakes. It was given its current title in 1973, in honour of the 16th Duke of Norfolk, who served as HM's Representative at Ascot from 1945 to 1972. The race was promoted to Group 2 status in 2006. It is presently contested on day three of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
