About the Stradsett Park Vintage Rally
Each May over the bank holiday weekend, find yourself in the lush agricultural countryside outside Downham Market in Norfolk. There in the rolling hills and rich fields, discover the majestic grounds of Stradsett Hall as it hosts the Stradsett Park Vintage Rally.
For more than 40-years, the rally has featured vintage and classic tractors, classic cars and motorcycles, stationary engines, and bygone construction equipment. Each year a theme underlies the rally, and unique attractions are presented within the theme.
Over 80 trade booths will offer arts and crafts, models for your own collection, compelling assortments of unique items, and delicious food and drink. Stroll around the grounds of Stradsett Hall and explore the gardens and ponds.
The National Vintage Tractor and Engine Club (East Anglia) sponsors the rally. All proceeds raised are donated to local charities. You can join the club via application on their official website. Annual membership is available for Adults, as well as a Junior Club for the younger Tractor and Machinery enthusiast.
Entry To The Rally
The event runs from 10 o’clock in the morning through to 5 o’clock each day. Standard entry is £7.50. Children under 16 get in for free.
Somewhere to Stay in Norfolk
Thinking of coming for the whole weekend? Camp overnight in nearby in Denver at Lakeside Caravan Park. For that ‘small B and B feel’, stay in Downham Market at the Belle Vue B&B. For a step up in accommodations and a step into antiquity, try the Castle Hotel also in Downham Market. This classically decorated hotel offers a restaurant, bar, complimentary breakfast, and free Wi-Fi. There is much more on offer further afield too!
Getting To Stradsett
From Norwich, follow the A47 west around Swaffham and turn west onto Swaffham Road. At Fincham, Swaffham Road becomes High Street and then Downham Road. Less than 2 miles from Fincham is the entrance to the Stradsett Hall grounds and the rally. Downham Market Train Station on the Great Northern Rail will drop visitors into Downham Market, and the fairgrounds are east out to Stradsett. Ground transportation may be required for travelers coming by train. Parking is available onsite.
Other Things To Do Around The Area
Bringing the children? Enjoy a little out-trip to the Church Farm Stow Bardolph to meet and pet farm animals. For a moment of history, step into the Denver Windmill, a fully restored to working order tower mill. Or go for a leisurely stroll at the Gooderstone Water Gardens & Nature Trail in nearby King’s Lynn. For the truly historic, visit Castle Rising, a ruined medieval fort in nearby Castle Rising, originally started in 1138 by William d'Aubigny II.
It is less than 90-miles from Central London to Downham Market and easily accessible from all directions. Come join us at this wonderful and unique rally, which gets more and more impressive each year.
