Surrounded by waterways feeding into the River Great Ouse and down to the North Sea, King’s Lynn boasted a sizeable seaport and trade routes within Britain and abroad by the late 12th century. Much of its history is still in evidence today with its tide clock at St Margaret's Church harking back to the town’s maritime prosperity, and one of its three market days dating back to the 1100s. Tuesday’s Georgian Market Place, once the home to public witch executions, has a gruesome reminder of the local ‘witch’s heart’ legend seared into the brickwork above a window. King's Lynn station opened in 1849 amid fears that the railway would challenge the port’s prominence. In fact, a spur connected the station to the harbour to transport shipped goods into London. Today the town is a major shopping hub with shops and restaurants lining the cobbled streets, and the Vancouver Quarter shopping centre is a must-see.
