Curious About Kings Lynn
Have fun discovering King’s Lynn with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Buy or instantly download our booklet containing two walks from https://www.curiousabout.co.uk/kingslynn.html then explore in your own time.
A Curious About walk is a fun and social activity for all the family and friends. Different people can take on different roles - follow the map, identify picture clues, read directions, etc - it's ideal for children from the age of 6, and if you can walk/wheelchair it, you're young enough!
King's Lynn, once England's 3rd largest port, dates back to the 12th century. This maritime past has left a wealth of heritage to explore, and stories to tell. Fine old merchants’ houses stretch down to the river between cobbled lanes and the elegant Custom House overlooks the harbour. There's England's largest chapel to discover as well as the most complete surviving Guildhall, a church with a leaning spire, an impressive Town Hall, and The Walks - constructed as a place to promenade, now a glorious park. Often bypassed en-route to the Norfolk coast, King's Lynn is a gem not to be missed!
