About King's Lynn

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.

  • Bank House is a beautiful, listed, Georgian townhouse, turned bank, turned charming eleven room hotel. This is still one of the most impressive buildings in the heart of King’s Lynn, with individually styled rooms, splendid river views and a lovely brasserie, which is open all day.
