About Historical Kings Lynn
The Beeches Guest House is situated in a quiet residential area close to both the railway and bus stations, the college of West Anglia, the local park and town centre. A five minute car journey takes you to the Norfolk Arena where Speedway and Stock Car racing regularly takes place. The Coast Hopper Bus service makes the Beeches Guest House the ideal place to start or finish your journey from.
The guesthouse is ideally situated for visiting Sandringham House, Norfolk Lavender and the North Norfolk coast with its fine beaches and wildlife reserves.
King’s Lynn has an impressive range of visitor attractions which tell of the town’s fascinating and often colourful past.
You can start your tour of Kings Lynn by strolling along the river and you will find the Green Quay, housed in the beautifully converted Marriott’s Warehouse. This discovery centre highlights the unique wildlife of The Wash.
Just a short walk away in the historic heart of the town is the Tales of the Old Gaol House – and a chance to hear the stories and experience the sights (& smells!) of Lynn’s criminal past. Also housed here are some of Britain’s finest civic treasures including the priceless King John Cup.
Almost next door is the Town House Museum and the chance to step back in time and see the domestic life of Lynn residents from medieval times through to the 1950s.
Walk through the popular shopping centre and you’ll come across the Lynn Museum. Their displays of archaeology and history, dating from pre-historic times, take you even further back into the town’s past.
King’s Lynn is not only an historic town. It has a thriving centre with three weekly markets and shops ranging from national chains to specialist craft and antique shops – perfect for browsing. There’s also a wide range of places to eat and drink from traditional pubs and lively bistros to quality restaurants – you can even enjoy your meal overlooking the river!
In the evenings, take in a show at the Corn Exchange in Tuesday Market Place, or try the intimate King’s Lynn Arts Centre which presents a lively programme of theatre, music, dance and comedy throughout the year. Visitors to the town in mid-July can enjoy the King’s Lynn Festival of Music and the Arts, followed by Festival Too – something for all tastes from classical to pop. Winter or summer, King’s Lynn is worth discovering.
