Once one of England's most important ports, King's Lynn was long known as 'the Warehouse on the Wash' (the Wash being the neighbouring bay). In its heyday, it was said you could cross from one side of the River Great Ouse to the other by simply stepping from boat to boat. Something of the salty port-town tang can still be sensed in old King's Lynn, with its cobbled lanes, vibrant weekly markets, and narrow streets flanked by old merchants' houses.
