In the beginning named Lynn or Lin (and later as Bishop's Lynn), the vibrant market town and port of King's Lynn was at one time one of the more important ports in Britain. It today has a resident population of approximately 43,000 and attracts a fairly large number of sightseers, who head there to soak in the story of this lovely town and to savor its numerous great tourist attractions and events. The name of the town (Lynn) comes from the Celtic word for "pool or lake" and undoubtedly indicates the fact that this place was in the past engulfed by a large tidal lake.

Kings Lynn is found near the Wash in Norfolk, that big chunk from England's east coast where in 1215, King John supposedly lost all his treasures. He had enjoyed a feast by the citizens of Lynn (as it was called back then), back then a growing port, but was caught by an especially fast rising high tide as he made his way westwards over treacherous mud flats towards Newark and the treasures were lost and never to be found again. Very soon after that, John passed away of a surfeit of peaches (or lampreys) dependent on which story you believe. Today the town was always a natural centre, the centre for business between the Midlands and the eastern counties, the train terminus of the Ely, Cambridge, London main line, and also the bridge which links 'high' Norfolk stretching toward Norwich in the east, and 'low' Norfolk, the flat marsh and fen lands to the south of the Wash.

Kings-lynn-river-great-ouseThe royal connections of King's Lynn have proven to be more substantial today than in King John's rule. Just a few kilometres to the north-east is Sandringham, a private estate owned by the Queen. King's Lynn itself is established predominantly on the easterly bank of the River Great Ouse estuary. Many of the streets near to the river banks, especially those around the twin towers of the St Margaret's Church, remain very much as they were a couple of hundred years ago.

If the town has a center of attention it will be the ancient Tuesday Market Place , specifically in recent years ever since the old Corn Exchange has been changed into a popular centre of entertainment. Pretty much all of the houses and buildings here are Victorian or even earlier than that. These buildings include the outstanding Duke's Head Hotel, constructed in 1683, and a grade II listed structure since 1951, the Corn Exchange (1854) and the Globe Hotel (originally put up in 1650).

King's Lynn History - Likely originally a Celtic community, and certainly later on an Saxon village it was stated just as Lun in the 1086 Domesday Book, and owned by Bishop Almer of Elmham. The town was only called King's Lynn in the 16th C, and had previously been termed Bishop's Lynn (and merely Lynn before this), the Bishop's aspect of the name was bestowed as it was owned by a Bishop, who established a Benedictine priory there in the late 11th century, and it was that Bishop who initially granted the town the right to hold a weekly street market in 1101. It was also at close to this time that the first Church of St Margaret was constructed.

Bishop's Lynn steadily became a vital commerce centre and port, with products like salt, wool and grain being shipped out by way of the harbor. By the time the fourteenth century arrived, it was among the chief ports in the British Isles and much commerce was done with the Hanseatic League (Baltic and German traders), with the Hanseatic Warehouse in St Margaret's Lane erected for them in the late fifteenth century.

The town suffered a couple of significant calamities during the 14th century, firstly in the form of a great fire which destroyed a lot of the town, and secondly with the Black Death, a plague which resulted in the the loss of about fifty percent of the residents of the town during the period 1348-49. In 1537, at the time of Henry the 8th, Bishop's Lynn came under the control of the king rather than a bishop and was after that referred to as King's Lynn, one year later Henry also closed down the Benedictine Priory as part of his Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536 to 1541).

During the English Civil War (1642-1651), the town unusually supported both sides, early on it supported parliament, but later changed allegiance and was seized by the Parliamentarians when it was under seige for three weeks. During the next couple of centuries the town's magnitude as a port declined following the downturn of the wool exporting industry, even though it did still continue exporting grain and importing timber, pitch and iron to a significantly lesser extent. King's Lynn additionally impacted by the rise of westerly ports like Bristol and Liverpool, which boomed following the discovery of the Americas.

Besides that the shipment of agricultural produce increased after the fens were drained in the seventeenth century, in addition, it developed an important shipbuilding industry. The train line came to the town in the 1840s, sending more visitors, trade and prosperity to the town.
