King’s Lynn is a market town, once one of the UK’s most important ports - supposedly in the town’s heyday you could walk across the river Ouse just by stepping from boat to boat, though these days you can use the ferry…These days the beautiful churches and winding streets, lined with impressive merchant’s houses - now some of the best places to stay in King’s Lynn - remain as proof of the town’s wealth and importance.
But the markets are still pretty lively and it’s not just history and architecture visitors come here for. There’s also a fascinating collection of museums, and two theatres, and King’s Lynn is well positioned for visits to Sandringham and several other great country houses.

King's Lynn, Norfolk
A friendly well-run hotel in a Georgian townhouse. Rooms have fresh contemporary interiors yet still with an air of tradition seen in the pleasingly uneven walls and beamed ceilings. The brasserie has a well deserved local following. Excellently placed for both business and local exploring.
