King’s Lynn’s fascinating history is brought vividly to life in this stunning new exhibition ‘Stories of Lynn’.

Set within the magnificent, newly-revealed vaulted undercroft of the 15th century Trinity Guildhall, Stories of Lynn invites you to come in to discover the stories behind the notable characters that helped shape our town.

Medieval Lynn was a port of international importance and one of the largest port towns in England.

Its status can be clearly seen in the rich legacy of historic buildings and beautiful architecture visible all around the town, and in its amazing collections of artefacts and its comprehensive borough archive.

Please note that the documents have not yet returned to the Borough Archives following the building works.

For further information about gaining access to the records normally housed at the Town Hall, please contact the Norfolk Record Office on 01553 779417 or via [email protected] A timeline of objects immerses you into the history of Lynn.

An exciting game teaches you about the Hanseatic League, a group of powerful trading towns and cities around the Baltic and North seas.

Tickets: Adults £7 Children and concessions £4.50 Family £16.50 Why not include a visit to the town hall?

On Tuesdays and Sundays, if you come to Stories of Lynn you can also take a free tour around the first floor of King’s Lynn Town Hall.
