King's Lynn Overview

King's Lynn is a good example for a formerly important English harbour which has lost its importance in the past centuries. That means that it has several monuments reminding of a past glory which makes it a good daytrip destination. The heydays of King's Lynn lie back in the middle ages when it was England's main port. The city was part of the Hanseatic League and is home of England's only remaining building of this powerful merchants' union. Other old buildings dat mainly from the 16th and 17th century. The local museum has an excellent exhibition on "Seahenge", a ritual place comparable to "Stonehenge", but made of wood and located in what is now the North Sea.
