The town is well known for its market, popular with both locals and tourists. There is plenty of activities to occupy yourself with, including cycling as Fakenham sits on the National Cycle Network. Just a 10-mile car journey away is the beautiful sea-side town of Wells-next-the-sea providing you with an escape from the bustling town to a relaxing sandy shore.

Don’t miss: A trip to Pensthorpe Natural Park, as seen on the BBC’s Springwatch, is a wonderful day out for all ages. The park boasts one of Norfolk’s best indoor and outdoor playgrounds as well as being a wonderful haven for birdwatchers and anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Our favourite places: Near to Fakenham is a wonderful tearoom called Hamptons At The Barn within the leafy village of Bawdeswell. This is a great place to stop for freshly cooked food and great customer service!

Events: When visiting the area keep an eye open for seasonal events at Pensthorpe. If you’re travelling around Christmas then make sure you book your tickets for The Thursford Spectacular – a show like no other set amongst one of the world’s most significant steam and fairground museum.
