Details

Curious About Kong's Lynn visits not just the obvious places, but some unusual ones too, with hidden treasures to discover. Suitable for all ages, the walks take 1-2 hours each, and are wheelchair and buggy friendly. Each 16 page booklet contains two walks, a brief history of King's Lynn, a detailed map with two walking routes marked on, and a series of directions and clues (Hints as to where to find the answer, and the answers can be found towards the end of the booklet). You’ll also find ideas for things to see on the way, pictures to identify & some interesting snippets about the people & events that have shaped King's Lynn.
Walk 1: Heritage & River (1.5 miles)
King’s Lynn has a glorious heritage, based around The Great Ouse river. This walk passes a museum dedicated to its old fishing community, a magnificent former chapel, a bustling market place, an ancient street, former home to many famous people, a wonderful Guildhall, a stunning Customs House, venerable almshouses, an ancient college, the alley of the Devil, an imposing church – and, oh yes, the river.
Walk 2: To The Walks (1 mile)
From the architecturally stunning Town Hall and Old Gaol House, this walk wends its way via historical streets to St James’ Park, with its colourful flowers and dancing fountain. Pass next through restful gardens with Greyfriars Tower which leans dramatically to the west. Then onwards to The Walks, where townsfolk have promenaded for more than three hundred years.
