The home of Seahenge

This town museum tells the story of Kings Lynn and west Norfolk. Gleaming display cases are packed with objects from the area’s colourful past including collections of pilgrim’s badges, maritime treasures and a fantastic hoard of Iceni gold coins.

At the heart of the museum is the mysterious Seahenge, one of the UK’s finest recent Bronze Age finds, recovered from the nearby shore at Holme-next-the-Sea.

Look out for the beautiful, specially-commissioned animated film which shows how the Fenland landscape developed over time. Kids will love the life-size fairground gallopers built by Savage’s – a local company that diversified from making agricultural machinery and steam engines to build elaborate fairground rides that travelled the world.
