From as early as the 12th century the Hanseatic town of King’s Lynn was a major trade hub and one of England’s most important ports. Steeped in maritime heritage, the influence of European trading links is still visible today in the architecture of this medieval port. Historic merchant houses sit alongside narrow cobbled lanes, and a magnificent Customs House stands proudly overlooking the harbour. Explore the town’s literary history and visit the St Nicholas Chapel where Daniel Defoe named one of his most well-known heroes after seeing the grave stone of one Robinson Cruso, and follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare who is said to have performed at St George’s Guildhall during the early 1590s.
