Distance from and name of nearest train station
Distance from and name of nearest train station to Fakenham, any suggestions?
There is also a direct coach once a day from London Victoria and Stratford direct to Fakenham.
Thank you, as I feared nothing close by.
The nearest station to Fakenham would be Kings Lynn (approx 20 miles). there are regular buses from Kings Lynn to Fakenham.
If you are coming from Eye near Peterborough by train this would need one change at Ely.
Sheringham is actually the closest by a couple of miles, but I can't imagine it ever being the best bet. King's Lynn is next nearest and Norwich is a further 4 miles. In all but a few cases, King's Lynn would be the best choice, bus service X8 runs from King's Lynn to Fakenham hourly throughout the day and calls at the rail station.
If you are travelling from Eye then the train is a fairly bad choice, because you would have to travel via Ely and change trains there. Far better in my opinion is to take the X1 bus from Peterborough to King's Lynn which runs every 30 minutes throughout the day and picks up at the rail station. There may be of course bus stops much closer to Eye since the bus goes along the A47.
