    Really enjoyed our visit. Loved the moat. Staff very helpful and eager to share information. History was a bit disturbing but so interesting.I believe Catherine if Aragon was sent here following her divorce from Henry V111. Cafe was good (better than most NT properties). Staff a bit miserable though. Sat in courtyard on lovely summer day. Worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare

    Holiday visit with a 5yr old. Pre-booked on line and where then just asked for our name on entry. The guy at reception was very friendly.
    The deer safari was a great experience with the deer literally eating out of your hand and the young women who was the tour guide was very good. A lovely experience.
    The farm element was OK, quite rustic/more of a working farm set up rather than a petting farm. Agree with dome of the previous comments about so d animals being quite squished in abd yes the alpacas teeth looked huge but think it also had a cleft lip which prob made it look worse. Bottle feeding the lambs was fun.... It was quite quiet so we got to feed 4. There was a distinct lack of signage to point you in the direction of things.... We only found the calf barn as heard as someone else say about it and head that way. There are also no signs around telling you the time of things like egg collecting, lamb feeding etc apart from on a desk in frobt of reception which we missed on entry....vest to take a photo of this oh your phone when going in.
    The cafe was nice, simple menu of sandwiches, jkt potatoes, pasties etc and nice home made cakes. Alsdi free chilled tap water which was good to have.

    It’s £8 entrance open certain days 11-1600. It has a nice coffee shop good coffee and cakes tho the sausage rolls aren’t great. You can take dogs on a lead and they can cool off in the river bit, not the ponds. Decent car park with shade.
    You walk around a large water garden for as long as you like and it’s really quite lovely. Maybe allow 2 hours. It’s between swaffham and kings lynn. If monies a bit tight then u can take your own picnic.
    There are plenty of shaded areas so cool enough even during the hottest weather
    Several were using electric scooters and managing ok as it’s very dry. Prob wouldn’t work in wet weather tho
    Recommended. Relaxing - pretty - nice

    Nice trip if you are interested in history. Castle staff were friendly and helpful. This is the ruin of a keep, there were plaques to read but no audio guides on offer. It was a rainy day but we enjoyed the visit and the nearby tea room was lovely. There was a toilet block in the car park which was clean and well kept.

    In the last few years or so, I'm glad the council have invested time and money into improving the walks. It used to look so bland but over the years they have improved it ever so much. The green is well cared for. The red mount still stands to this day which is a key part of King's Lynn's history. The play area is spacious and has a variety of equipment for children to enjoy. There's a nice small shop which opens up typically in the summer for people to buy refreshments. The river could do with some work but still you see some ducks dotted about. The field also has enough space for local events to be held such as celebrate King's Lynn, pride, park run and many others. It's a nice park to visit with just about anyone.

    My wife and I visited the Minster late afternoon and the organist was playing throughout our visit. Joyful and it added real spiritual value to the experience.

    Well laid out museum, telling the story of the development of Kings Lynn, in particular it's importance as a port and its membership of the Hansiatic League

    It's quite a small museum but for what it is it's a good one, showcasing local history and to get more insight into the heart of King's Lynn. It is a key tourist attraction and everyone should visit if they haven't done so already.

    What an interesting and well put together little museum. It manages to tell its own local story and also to reflect how it all fitted in with what was going on in the Country as a whole.
    When you visit please take the time to read the stories with the exhibits as they really do complement each other
    Bet and her colleague, who was working in the Smithy area, were really welcoming and full of good information

    The Custom House is beautifully nestled on the Purfleet Quay. It is a very elegant building and an important part of King's Lynn maritime history.

    There are some lovely short walks taking in woodland, moorland and bogs (the bog has a raised board walk). Beautiful views and scenery that can transport you back in time. If you’re keen eyed, quiet and patient then the wildlife and birds are there to be discovered, along with the Galloway cattle! There are a couple of small parking areas that are free on the Wolverton road - donations can be made (read the signs). There are no other facilities so come prepared or plan a small diversion into the nearby village of Dersingham or the Sandringham Estate.

    The George Vancouver Statue is on the Purfleet Quay near the Custom House. It details the extraordinary travels of this fine sailor and explorer.
