Greyfriar's Tower and Tower Gardens May 27, 2011
As many other medeival cities, King's Lynn was home to a mighty monastery - in this case, a Franciscan one. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538, most monasteries were demolished, left into decay or used otherwise. The Greyfriars tower for example, is one of only three remaining of its kind in England and the most complete of them. It dates back to the early 13th century.

In 1911, a new garden was designed to honour the coronation of George V. The gardens are partly located on the grounds of the former monastery and also include a monument to the vicitims of WWI (Lynn War Memorial) which was unveiled in 1921.
