The picturesque market town of King’s Lynn dates back to medieval times and features fantastic historic attractions such as Castle Rising and King’s Lynn Minster, which can take you on a history trip back to the 12th century. The town’s most famous nearby attraction, of course, is the Queen’s private residence, the stunning Sandringham House, which is just a 20-minute drive away. It’s one of the many excellent days out you can tick off when you stay with us at our King’s Lynn hotel. You’ll also want to sample the old town’s superb food scene and stop off for a pint at one of King’s Lynn’s many great pubs as well.
