Fakenham Racecourse

NR21 7NY

Fakenham Racecourse is wonderfully situated in the picturesque countryside of North Norfolk just 9 miles from the coast at Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea. It is a friendly National Hunt Racecourse that has been in existence since 1905. Its racing season runs between October and May and race meetings are enjoyed by crowds from all over the country. The racecourse celebrated its Centenery Year in 2005.

A day's racing is an exciting day out for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Fakenham prides itself on its friendly, casual atmosphere and it has no formal dress code. Children aged 16 and under are admitted free, and will love the thrill of the races and the roars of the crowd.

The racecourse is committed to welcoming all visitors, and has dedicated car-parking and viewing areas for the 'less abled'. Car parking (except in the Members' Car Park) is free and is within easy walking distance of the action. Some of the car parking areas offer excellent views of the racing, and some people enjoy a picnic from the boot of their car! There are, of course, numerous food and drink outlets on site, offering a range of refreshments, and there are on-course Tote facilities and bookmakers.

As an addition to racing, the racecourse facilities are open all year as an attractive 3 Star Caravan Club Affiliated site for touring caravans, motor homes and camping. The numerous function rooms for hire cater for corporate/private events and are available as a licenced venue for wedding ceremonies.
