IMG_8929Although on this trip we didn’t go into the heart of Kings Lynn, we did visit some of the beautiful villages on the outskirts. If you’re heading to the town or are unsure of where to stay, perhaps consider one of the little villages and market towns dotted around this part of Norfolk.

Becci’s Vintage Boutique

IMG_8938We stumbled upon this place quite by accident. It hasn’t been open long but it’s a beautiful little boutique selling vintage clothes for men and women. The owner, Becci, also has plans to bring in vintage children’s clothing in the future.

If you’re looking for hand-picked vintage items at reasonable prices then you should stop here. I came away with a beautiful blue and white knee-length dress. The whole shop was so beautifully set out. There were plenty of dresses, jackets, tops and accessories dotted all around the small shop.

The Kings Head


This hotel and restaurant is beautiful. It’s opposite the vintage boutique and offers a wide range of food and drink as well as some gorgeous outdoor seating. There’s plenty of space for parking and we were lucky enough to be shown around on of the hotel’s beautiful bedrooms.

Houghton Hall

The Houghton Revisited exhibition is now on and features some amazing artwork that hasn’t been seen out of Russia for more than 200 years. Tickets for the exhibition are now sold out but you can still visit the hall and gardens. Although, as we found out, the hall is only open Wednesday – Sunday.

Congham Hall Hotel


This beautiful hotel is a great place to stay in Kings Lynn. There’s a swimming pool, spa, orchard, famous herb garden and a small library. The terrace was a pleasure to sit at as the sun started going down. We had an amazing three course meal looking out across the fields at the back of the hall. Take a look at our full Congham Hall review.
