King’s Lynn – Friday 13th July 2018

King’s Lynn was originally called Bishop’s Lynn, but became a royal town when Henry VIII dissolved the monarchy – first becoming Lynn Regis before being given its current name.  It is a pretty market town set on the river Great Ouse with many beautiful old buildings.   The Waterstones in King’s Lynn is set on one floor and has a large children’s department.
