Previously referred to as Lynn or Lin (and later as Bishop's Lynn), the dynamic port and market town of Kings Lynn in Norfolk was at one time one of the most significant ports in Britain. The town at this time has a resident population of around 42,800 and draws in quite a high number of sightseers, who go to absorb the historical past of this attractive city and also to enjoy its many excellent attractions and events. The name "Lynn" comes from the Celtic word for "lake or pool" and signifies the fact that this place had been covered by an extensive tidal lake.

The town is located at the southern end of the Wash in North-West Norfolk, that enormous chunk from England's east coast where in 1215, King John supposedly lost all his gold and jewels. He had been feasted by the burghers of Lynn (as it was then named), back then a significant port, but was engulfed by an especially fast rising October high tide as he headed west over treacherous mud flats towards Newark and the jewels were lost forever. Not long after that, King John died of a surfeit of lampreys (or a surfeit of peaches), depending on which report you read. These days the town is a natural centre, the funnel for business between the East Midlands and East Anglia, the railway terminus of the Ely, Cambridge, London main line, and a bridge which links 'high' Norfolk stretching in the direction of the city of Norwich in the east, and 'low' Norfolk, the flat fenlands and marshes to the south of the Wash.

Kings-lynn-river-great-ouseThe royal connections for King's Lynn happen to be greater in these modern times as compared to the days of King John. Just a few kilometres toward the north-east is Sandringham, one of the Queen's exclusive estates and a significant tourist attraction. The town of King's Lynn itself itself stands largely on the easterly bank of the River Great Ouse estuary. A lot of the streets near the river, specially the ones near to the St Margaret's Minster Church, have remained much the same as they were 2 centuries ago.

If the town has a focal point it would most likely be the historic Tuesday Market Place into which King Street leads, certainly in recent times since the old Corn Exchange has been developed into a leading entertainment centre. A lot of the houses and buildings around the Tuesday Market Place are Victorian or even earlier. These buildings include the magnificent Duke's Head Hotel, built in 1683, and a grade II listed structure since 1951, the Corn Exchange (1854) and the Globe Hotel (originally put up in 1650).

A Brief History of King's Lynn Norfolk - Quite likely in the beginning a Celtic settlement, and most definitely later an Anglo-Saxon camp it was named simply as Lun in the Domesday Book of 1086, and owned by Bishop Almer of Elmham. The town was only called King's Lynn in the 16th century, and had formerly been called Bishop's Lynn (and simply Lynn previous to that), the Bishop's element of the name was bestowed simply because it was at that time the property of a Bishop, who set up a Benedictine priory there in the late eleventh century, and it was that Bishop who originally allowed the town the charter to hold a street market in 1101. It was also at around this time that the first Church of St Margaret was constructed.

The town little by little started to be a major commerce hub and port, with merchandise like wool, salt and grain exported by way of the harbor. By the 14th century, Bishop's Lynn was one of the key ports in Britain and much commerce was done with the Hanseatic League (Baltic and Germanic traders), and the Hanseatic Warehouse in St Margaret's Ln erected for them in the late 15th C.

The town endured a pair of major calamities in the 14th century, firstly in the shape of a severe fire which destroyed much of the town, and secondly with the Black Death, a plague which resulted in the death of approximately half of the inhabitants of the town during the time period 1348 and 1349. In 1537, during the reign of Henry 8th, the town came under the control of the monarch instead of a bishop and was thereafter known as King's Lynn, the following year Henry VIII also closed down the Benedictine Priory during his Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536-1541).

At the time of English Civil War (1642 to 1651), the town essentially fought on both sides, firstly it followed parliament, but subsequently changed allegiance and was seized by the Parliamentarians when it was under seige for 3 weeks. During the following two centuries King's Lynn's value as a port waned along with the slump in wool exporting, though it certainly did carry on exporting grain and importing iron and timber to a lesser extent. The town of King's Lynn moreover affected by the growth of western ports like Bristol and Liverpool, which blossomed after the discovery of the Americas.

Furthermore the exporting of farmed produce increased following the draining of the fens during the seventeenth century, moreover it started a key shipbuilding industry. The train arrived at the town in eighteen forty seven, delivering more trade, prosperity and visitors to the town. The population of the town expanded significantly during the Sixties given it became an overflow town for London.
