Dating back to the 12th C. the market town of King’s Lynn was once one of England’s most important ports, known until 1537 as Bishop’s Lynn.
It’s rich past has left a wonderful heritage of buildings, museums and stories to be discovered. Fine old merchant houses stretch down to the River Great Ouse between cobbled lanes. Here you will find the iconic 18th C. Custom House. There are two magnificent market places: one is home to St. Margaret’s Church; the other possibly one of England’s greatest squares.
