Trace the maritime trail through the ancient streets to the historic quayside and immerse yourself in 900 years of seafaring history.
Dominated by the twin towers of its impressive 12th century minster, the town is situated on the banks of the River Great Ouse where it meets the Wash, and reminders of its maritime past are everywhere.
Take a guided town tour, or follow the King’s Lynn maritime trail and discover the sites and stories of the town, from the refurbished 17th century Custom House on Purfleet Quay, once a merchants’ exchange, to True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum which depicts the story of the old North End fishing quarter.
Wander medieval streets and cobbled alleyways around the town’s historic waterfront, and then soak up the atmosphere of this famous port over some local cuisine in a waterside restaurant.
For one of the best views of King’s Lynn, hop on the passenger ferry across the River Great Ouse to West Lynn.
