King's Lynn

A new home in King’s Lynn puts you within a shout of the stunning Norfolk coastline and the famous landscape of the Fens and gives you Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire as neighbours.

Felixstowe and Grimsby are the ports in the East of England that we’ve all heard of, so it may come as a surprise that King’s Lynn is a seafaring town too. With the wide waters of the Wash on the doorstep, this is a market town with a maritime way of life too. The historic centre and the quay are a reminder of the town’s heritage, the Tuesday and Saturday markets are a connection with the county’s farming community and the town centre sorts out your day-to-day shopping.

From King’s Lynn there’s easy access to some of Norfolk’s best beaches; from Hunstanton to Wells-next-the-Sea to Cromer. It’s not far from the three beautiful and historic county cities; Norwich, Cambridge and Lincoln, and if you live in the town, there are local facilities close to home.

More about West Norfolk

With Sandringham up the road, West Norfolk is very much on the map. This lovely rural county, with its royal connections, sandy beaches, unique waterways and pretty villages, is a great place to bring up a family.

Going to school and going to the shops

King’s Lynn has good range of primary schools and a choice of four secondary schools – one of them is in the nearby village of Terrington St Clement. There’s an F.E. college in town too – the College of West Anglia. The town centre is home to some of the main national brands and most of the national supermarkets are on hand too.

On the move

Whatever your lifestyle, it probably includes getting to work. King’s Lynn is on the A47 which is the main connection between Norwich and Peterborough. The A10 takes you down to Cambridge via Ely and the A17 heads up through Lincolnshire. There’s a fast train from the town’s station to Cambridge and Kings Cross so you can be in London in under 2 hours.
