Formerly named Lynn or Lin (and later as Bishop's Lynn), the vibrant market town of Kings Lynn was at one time among the most significant sea ports in Britain. The town presently has a resident population of approximately 42,800 and attracts quite a high number of travellers, who head there to learn about the historical past of this picturesque town and also to savor its many excellent points of interest and events. The name of the town (Lynn) probably comes from the Celtic for "pool or lake" and doubtless signifies the truth that this place was formerly covered by a sizable tidal lake.

Kings Lynn is found at the foot of the Wash in Norfolk, the big chunk out of the east coast of England where in 1215, King John supposedly lost all his Crown Jewels. He had been feasted by the elite of Lynn (which it was named back then), back then a thriving port, but as he headed west on the way to Newark, he was surprised by an extraordinarily high tide and the treasures were lost on the mud flats. Soon after that, he passed away of a surfeit of peaches (or lampreys) determined by which story you trust. At present the town is a natural hub, the hub for business between East Anglia and the Midlands, the train terminus of the Ely, Cambridge, London main line, and a bridge that links 'high' Norfolk extending toward Norwich in the east, with 'low' Norfolk, the flat fenlands and marshes to the south of the Wash.

Kings-lynn-river-great-ouseKing's Lynn's royal associations happen to be more powerful presently than in the days of King John. A few miles away to the north-east you will find Sandringham Park, one of the Queen's private estates and a popular tourist attraction. The town of King's Lynn itself itself is placed largely on the easterly bank of the estuary of the muddy, wide River Great Ouse. A lot of the streets adjacent to the river, particularly the ones around the twin towers of the St Margaret's Church, are very much as they were a couple of centuries ago.

If the town has a focal point it will be the old Tuesday Market Place into which King Street leads, especially in the recent past ever since the Corn Exchange has been developed into a substantial centre of entertainment. Almost all the buildings here are Victorian or earlier. These buildings include the spectacular Duke's Head Hotel, constructed in 1683, and a grade II listed building ever since 1951, the Corn Exchange (1854) and the Globe Hotel (first constructed in 1650).

King's Lynn's Historical Background - Probably at first a Celtic settlement, and undoubtedly later an Anglo-Saxon settlement it was registered simply as Lun in the Domesday Book of 1086, and owned by Bishop Almer of Elmham. The town was only called King's Lynn during the 16th C, and had previously been known as Bishop's Lynn (and Lynn before this), the Bishop's element of the name was assigned simply because it was once controlled by a Bishop, who established a Benedictine priory there in the late 11th century, and it was the Bishop who initially allowed the town the legal right to hold a weekly street market in 1101. It was furthermore at approximately this time that the Church of St Margaret was erected.

The town increasingly grew to become a major commerce hub and port, with merchandise like salt, wool and grain being exported from the harbour. By the arrival of the 14th century, it was one of the main ports in the British Isles and considerable amount of trade was done with the Hanseatic League (Baltic and Germanic merchants), and the Hanseatic Warehouse in St Margaret's Lane constructed for them in 1475.

The town of Bishop's Lynn experienced a couple of significant misfortunes during the fourteenth century, firstly in the shape of a horrendous fire which destroyed large areas the town, and the second by way of the Black Death, a plague which resulted in the the loss of around fifty percent of the town's occupants in the period 1348-49. In 1537, at the time of Henry the Eighth, Bishop's Lynn came under the control of the king rather than the bishop and it was therefore named King's Lynn, the year after the King also closed down the Benedictine Priory as part of his Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536-1541).

In the Civil War (1642-51), the town of King's Lynn essentially joined both sides, firstly it backed parliament, but eventually changed sides and was accordingly seized by the Parliamentarians after being under seige for several weeks. During the following 2 centuries the town's significance as a port receeded along with the slump in the wool exporting industry, although it did still carry on exporting grain and importing pitch, timber and iron to a considerably lesser extent. The town of King's Lynn besides that affected by the expansion of western ports like Liverpool and Bristol, which boomed following the Americas were discovered.
