Set in the English county of Norfolk, the town and port of King's Lynn is aptly named, being just 6 miles from Sandringham House, owned and often inhabited by the British Royal Family. The port of King's Lynn was hugely significant in mediaeval times and still displays two buildings, warehouses of the Hanseatic League, a trading alliance of the Baltic Sea and Northern Europe between the 13th and 17th centuries.
The town recently became a member of Die Hanse, the modern equivalent of the Hanseatic League. The coastal location of King's Lynn has, in addition, always been popular for fishing and seafood industries.
The historic heart of King's Lynn, boasting fine buildings such as the Guild Hall and the Town Hall centres round the Saturday market place, an enduring commercial institution in the town. History and culture is upheld and modernised with two festivals hosted in the town each summer, King's Lynn Festival and Festival Too.
One of the largest free music festivals in Europe, Festival Too attracts acts of international renown and many thousands of attendees. Residents and visitors are well served with amenities, shopping and leisure pursuits with many bars, cafes and restaurants within the town and also the recently refurbished majestic cinema.
With such a regal location, rich cultural history, traditional streets and buildings, and a host of leisure facilities, King's Lynn is a very popular destination for visitors. The choice of accommodation is impressive with major hotels, traditional Inns and the ever popular range of King’s Lynn Bed and Breakfast lodgings.
