Guided Walks of Historic King’s Lynn
Our usual programme of walks has been suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis. However, we are delighted to offer pre-booked tours for small private groups, following the latest government advice:
- Groups of up to five people, from a maximum of two households or social bubbles.
- The guide will remain 2 metres apart from the group.
- The tour will be outdoors throughout.
- Tours will start at the Saturday Market Place (outside ‘Stories of Lynn’ and the Tourist Information Centre) and will take 1½ to 2 hours.
- Bookings can be made for any reasonable time on any day, subject to a guide being available.
- We will require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to complete the arrangements, but the more notice you can give us the more likely we will be able to meet your requirements.
To make a booking, please contact Melissa, our bookings' secretary, directly on 01485 543004 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

King’s Lynn has over 400 Listed Buildings Grades I, II* & II, with the finest medieval architecture anywhere in the country for a town of its size.
King’s Lynn’s unique 12th Century development and prosperous Hanseatic trading links created one of the wealthiest towns in medieval England. Today, its architectural legacy includes two Market Places (one of which is the largest in England), two Guildhalls (one of which is the largest in England) and 2 Churches (one of which is the largest chapel in England).
King’s Lynn Town Guides conduct regular guided walks every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from May to October and at other times throughout the year by appointment. The full range of walks can be found on this website.
Each year we show over 1,000 locals and visitors around our wonderful town and introduce them to its unique heritage. It all started with a small band of enthusiastic people who formed the first Town Guides back in 1977.
All the guides are volunteers who have given up their time to train to be awarded their badge. All the money that is collected from the walks is given away to local charities and organisations that further the conservation and promotion of the town.
