OUTING King's Lynn

OUTING 2 - Afternoon Guided Tour of ‘the other King’s Lynn’ Wednesday 15th June 2022
Having previously guided us around Hanseatic Kings Lynn, this time Dr Paul Richards will take us round the
medieval parts. We make our own way to King’s Lynn and meet at 2pm at True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum,
North Street, PE30 1QW. This can be reached on foot from Tuesday Market Place, exiting at the bottom
right along St Nicholas’ Street, then left into St Ann’s Street : the museum is on the right beyond St
Nicholas’ Chapel. Those travelling by car might be wise to use one of the other car-parks as space is often
limited on the market place.
Upon arrival at True’s Yard, we will be offered complimentary tea or coffee before we begin our tour. This
will include St Nicholas’ Chapel, Tuesday Market Place, St Georges Guildhall and the Custom House. The
tour will last approximately 2 hours.
