The Norfolk town of King's Lynn lies on the North Sea coast and also on the banks of the River Great Ouse as it flows into The Wash.
This port town is a major centre for the seafood trade and large-scale fishing, particularly inshore shellfish and prawns, as well as the agricultural and chemical industries. Lying as it does on the verges of the Norfolk fens, King's Lynn is a also major employer in the food processing industry.
In the centre of town, around its original medieval market place, are several historic buildings of note such as the fifteenth century Guildhall and Victorian Town Hall.
There are also the imposing sights of the town's three main churches - All Saints Church, St Margarets and St Nicholas' Chapel - that dominate the skyline around the market place. Many fine examples of grand Georgian architecture are to be found in King's Lynn too.
