About King's Lynn
In medieval times, King’s Lynn was a booming trading port and this legacy has graced the town with some truly beautiful landmarks - which make it a joy to explore today! Wander streets filled with quirky half-timbered merchants’ houses, shop unique stalls in a regal marketplace and appreciate the iconic 17th-century customs house.
But it’s the splendid Gothic minster here that really steals the show! Over 900 years old, it features beautiful stained glass, fine brass rubbings and soaring towers. Elsewhere, you’ll find a number of museums where you can explore King’s Lynn’s past along with a good selection of cafes, bistros and independent shops.
Venture to nearby Oxburgh Hall for even more historic beauty. Encircled by a moat and exquisite formal gardens, the grand Tudor mansion instantly enchants. Inside, you’ll find an opulent drawing room, a regal library, even a priest hole!
