Fakenham - British Racecourse

Jump racing in Norfolk.

About Fakenham Racecourse:

Fakenham is a small, rural course that holds National Hunt meetings across the year. A sharp, left-handed track, this course definitely suits the nippy sorts that are sufficiently nimble to deal with corners and bends. A very popular venue with the locals, particularly the Bank Holiday fixture in April which attracts a decent-sized crowd. The going rarely turns heavy. Fakenham Racecourse prides itself on being friendly, casual atmosphere and it has no formal dress code. Children ages 17 and under are admitted free (must be accompanied by an adult) and well behaved dogs are also welcome as long as they are kept on a lead at all times.
