Due to COVID-19, please check directly with the venue/accommodation provider for potential new visiting and booking procedures.


Since 1905, there has been uninterrupted racing at Fakenham (except for during the two World Wars), and today's race-goers continue to relish the excitement and buzz of a day at the races from the autumn through to early summer. Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of modern life, the rural setting and simple charm of Fakenham Racecourse create a unique and convivial atmosphere where you can cast off your workday problems and enjoy the moment. For many, Fakenham offers the very essence of National Hunt racing, and is undoubtedly one of the country's most friendly racecourses.
