Regular guided walks of Historic King’s Lynn take place from April to October, commencing at 2pm from Saturday Market Place. Keep a watch-out for our special walks, or book a private walk of your choice. Read on for more details. . .
King’s Lynn has over 400 Listed Buildings Grades I, II* & II, with the finest medieval architecture anywhere in the country for a town of its size.
King’s Lynn’s unique 12th Century development and prosperous Hanseatic trading links created one of the wealthiest towns in medieval England. Today, its architectural legacy includes two Market Places (one of which is the largest in England), two Guildhalls (one of which is the largest in England) and 2 Churches (one of which is the largest chapel in England).
King’s Lynn Town Guides conduct regular guided walks:
- every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from April to October
- every Wednesday and Thursday in July and August
- at other times throughout the year by appointment.
The full range of walks can be found on this website.
Each year we show over 1,000 locals and visitors around our wonderful town and introduce them to its unique heritage. It all started with a small band of enthusiastic people who formed the first Town Guides back in 1977.
All the guides are volunteers who have given up their time to train to be awarded their badge. All the money that is collected from the walks is given away to local charities and organisations that further the conservation and promotion of the town.
