With documents dating back to the 13th century, including King John’s royal charter of 1204, granting Lynn the right to be a free borough forever, you’ll discover stories of seafarers, explorers, merchants, mayors, magistrates, and miscreants who have shaped one of England’s most important medieval port towns.
