Discover King’s Lynn on foot with the King's Lynn Town Guides.

Robert Walpole was MP for the town for 40 years (1702-42) and became Britain’s first Prime Minister in the 1720s when he rebuilt Houghton Hall. Lynn was in the premier league of English towns and ports before 1742 and its merchant rulers provided Sir Robert with an impressive power base. The walk will highlight the people and places with which he was familiar. Meet outside Stories of Lynn.
