SITUATION
Fakenham is often referred to as the “gateway” to North Norfolk. On the banks of the River Wensum and nestling between the historic city of Norwich and the medieval port of King’s Lynn, Fakenham is also only a short drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coastline some 11 miles away.

Once renowned for its successful printing industry, Fakenham is now better known for Norfolk’s only national hunt racecourse and its popular weekly markets, flea market and public auctions in the local sales room. People come from far and wide on market and race days transforming the central marketplace. Fakenham boasts several supermarkets, library, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, a good selection of restaurants, bowling alley, cinema and infants’, junior and high school with 6th form college. Surrounding areas are all well serviced by bus routes with direct rail links to Cambridge and London from King’s Lynn and Norwich.
