Within Framingham Earl is Framingham Earl High School, which is a Specialist Sports College. Sharing the same site is the newly-built Sports Centre which opened in early 2006 and provides a range of exercise classes and sports opportunities to the people of the surrounding villages as well as giving the school extra space to use for PE and dance lessons.
The village has two churches, the Methodist Church and the Church of St. Andrew. St. Andrew's is one of 124 existing round-tower churches in Norfolk. The writer W.G. Sebald is buried in the churchyard of St. Andrew's.
Framingham Earl has a pub called The Railway Tavern and a shop called Indian Ocean, which sells fair trade craft and furniture items.
