At first called Lynn or Lin (and later as Bishop's Lynn), the vibrant town of King's Lynn, Norfolk was at one time one of the most significant seaports in Britain. It now has a populace of approximately forty two thousand and draws in quite a high number of travellers, who head there to learn about the background of this attractive city and also to experience its various fine tourist attractions and events. The name "Lynn" almost certainly comes from the Celtic term for "pool or lake" and indicates the truth that this spot was in the past engulfed by a big tidal lake.

King's Lynn lies on the Wash in Norfolk, that giant chunk out of England's east coast where in twelve fifteen, King John supposedly lost all his gold and jewels. He had been treated to a feast by the landowners of Lynn (as it was named back then), then a growing port, but was caught by a fast rising October high tide as he made his way west over dangerous mud flats in the direction of Newark and the jewels were lost on the mud flats. Shortly after that, King John died of a surfeit of lampreys (or peaches), determined by which narrative you believe. Now King's Lynn was always a natural centre, the funnel for business betwixt the eastern counties and the Midlands, the train terminus of the London, Cambridge, Ely main line, and the bridging point which joins 'high' Norfolk heading in the direction of Norwich to the east, and 'low' Norfolk, the flat fenlands and marshes south of the Wash.

Kings-lynn-river-great-ouseThe royal associations with King's Lynn are generally deeper presently as compared to the days of King John. Just a few kilometres away to the north-east you will come across Sandringham, a private estate owned by the Queen. The town of King's Lynn itself itself is placed chiefly on the easterly bank of the River Great Ouse estuary. The majority of the streets near to the river banks, particularly those near the the iconic St Margaret's Church, have remained very much as they were several centuries ago.

If the town has a focal point it will be the traditional Tuesday Market Place into which King Street leads, this is especially true in the past several years since the old Corn Exchange has been transformed into a popular entertainment centre. Most of the structures here are Victorian or even before this. These buildings include the beautiful Duke's Head Hotel, erected in 1683, and a grade II listed structure ever since 1951, the Corn Exchange (1854) and the Globe Hotel (originally constructed in 1650).

King's Lynn History - Probably originally a Celtic community, and certainly settled in Saxon times it was shown simply as Lun in the 1086 Domesday Book, and owned by Bishop Almer of Elmham. The town was to be known as King's Lynn during the 16th century, and had formerly been named Bishop's Lynn (and just Lynn previous to that), the Bishop's portion of the name was administered as it was the property of a Bishop, who set up a Benedictine priory there in the late eleventh century, and it was this Bishop who first allowed the town the charter to hold a weekly street market in 1101. It was furthermore at approximately this time that the Church of St Margaret was erected.

Bishop's Lynn steadily started to be a very important commerce hub and port, with products like salt, grain and wool being exported via the harbor. By the fourteenth century, it was among the primary ports in the British Isles and much commerce was done with members of the Hanseatic League (Baltic and German merchants), and the Hanseatic Warehouse being constructed for them in the late 15th C.

The town suffered 2 major catastrophes during the 14th C, the first in the shape of a terrible fire which impacted most of the town, and the second in the shape of the Black Death, a terrible plague which resulted in the the loss of over half of the citizens of the town in the time period 1348 and 1349. In 1537, at the time of Henry VIII, the town was taken over by the monarch rather than the bishop and it was after this known as King's Lynn, the following year Henry also closed down the Benedictine Priory during his Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536-1541).

Through the English Civil War (1642 to 1651), the town unusually fought on both sides, initially it backed parliament, but later on swapped sides and ended up being captured by the Parliamentarians after being under seige for 3 weeks. Over the next two centuries King's Lynn's influence as a port declined following the decline of the wool exporting industry, whilst it obviously did still carry on exporting grain and importing iron and timber to a somewhat lesser extent. The town of King's Lynn moreover impacted by the expansion of westerly ports like Liverpool and Bristol, which expanded after the Americas were discovered.

On top of that the export of farm produce grew after the draining of the fens during the seventeenth century, furthermore, it started an important shipbuilding industry. The train reached King's Lynn in 1847, carrying more prosperity, trade and visitors to the area.
