King’s Lynn Renaissance
One of the first Heritage Action Zones in the country, King’s Lynn boasts 462 listed buildings (17 Grade I, 55 Grade II* and 390 Grade II) including Grade I St Nicholas Chapel, England’s largest surviving parochial chapel, Grade I St George’s Guildhall, the largest surviving medieval guildhall in the country, Grade I Hanse House (1485), the only surviving Hanseatic Warehouse in England and Grade I Custom House (1683), designed by Henry Bell and described by Nikolaus Pevsner as “one of the most perfect buildings ever built”.
The birthplace of Captain George Vancouver, the Royal Navy officer and explorer, who charted North America’s north western Pacific coast regions, King’s Lynn has a strong trading and maritime tradition that goes back to its membership of the Hanseatic League, a powerful medieval trading organisation, centred on the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
Today, King’s Lynn is a sub-regional centre serving a functional economic area of circa 200,000 population that covers the western part of Norfolk as well as parts of northern Cambridgeshire and southern Lincolnshire.
