Fakenham is a historic town which sits on the river Wensum, between Kings Lynn and Cromer in north Norfolk. Dating back to Saxon times there is plenty of interesting remains and architecture to be found in and around the town. Fakenham was once a very important area for printing which is still carried on in a smaller scale today. Stroll around the market place and you will find some of the original printing blocks which have been placed there in recognition of the trade. In the market square there is a Thursday market each week, which includes an interesting flea market and a monthly farmers market on Saturday mornings. Within the town there is a small bowling alley and a cinema as well as the Museum of Gas and Local History to visit. An ideal location as a base for exploring Norfolk and all the attractions that are on offer, there is a wide choice of accommodation available in and close by the town. For a fascinating day out there is the Thursford Collection of fairground rides and steam driven organs and engines for the whole family to explore. There are spectacular gardens and a nature reserve at Pensthorpe which is the perfect place for bird watchers to spend the day. Gooderstone Water Gardens and Nature Trail is a tranquil place to spend a day, meandering around the picturesque gardens and bridges, or by the water’s edge where there is abundant wildlife to observe, followed by refreshments in the tea room. Raynham Hall and Estate is a magnificent country house with resplendent gardens. Filled with fine furniture, works of art and elaborate decor it is a wonderful place to spend the day whatever the weather and you may even come across the odd ghost or two!more >>
