Fakenham Racecourse is 27 miles from 106 The Malt House, take the A1067 and it’s a pleasant drive, passing some decent stop off shopping points (Hamptons Home & Garden and Bawdeswell Garden Centre, Algy’s Farm Shop). It shouldn’t take more than around 50 minutes.
28th October is their next Raceday, the gates open at 11am, first race at 1.10pm. The atmosphere is like Fakenham, friendly! There is a restaurant on site and it will make a great day out.
Also for fans of pop up cinema, and Halloween, the race course is laying on ‘drive in’ cinema on the evenings of 29 & 30 October, you might even bump into us!
Plan your day to include dinner at The Parson WoodForde at Weston Longville, book in advance as it’s popular with good reason.
If you are coming to stay at any other time of year, the racecourse has meetings year round, so check their website. The shops and pub are open year round also, so this day trip is a ‘moveable feast’! The road from Norwich to Fakenham is good.
