Step back in time
As one of England’s most important medieval ports, King’s Lynn is packed with history. Shop your way down cobbled lanes or enjoy the Minster and grand halls of the famous Saturday Market Square.
To bring all this history to life, duck into Stories of Lynn, a brand new exhibition housed in a 15th century guildhall. Situated just across from the Minster, this is the place to experience life in medieval times through interactive multimedia displays.
Walk the Maritime Trail
If it’s seafaring history you’re after, simply set off down the King’s Lynn Maritime Trail.
The trail takes you on a 90-minute walk from the Fisherfolk Museum past The Custom House, merchant homes and much more. And if you’re still itching to explore the waters, you can hop on board a ferry to cross the Great River Ouse to West Lynn.
Food and drink
With the sea on one side and West Norfolk’s rural farms on the other, King’s Lynn has no shortage of culinary delights.
For a real treat, stop by the Bank House, named the UK’s Town Pub of the Year for 2017 by the Good Pub Guide. Fresh local foods and ales are the order of the day, all just a 12-minute walk from the station.
