This event (happening yearly around the country) is a fantastic opportunity to explore King’s Lynn’s historic buildings. The town will celebrate this special day once again on Sunday 15th September 2019, with nearly 60 places of interest to see during that day. You can view or download a copy of the 2019 Programme from the Civic Society website nearer the time, or pick up a printed copy from the King’s Lynn TIC. There will also be a Norfolk Heritage Market on the Saturday Market Place and a ‘Classic Cars’ event in the town on Sunday too, all making King’s Lynn’s Heritage Open Day a bumper event of history and heritage.
The King’s Lynn Civic Society working with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, the King’s Lynn Town Guides, local businesses, residents and Friends groups arrange such a jam-packed programme of open buildings, cemeteries and towers and tunnels with lots of special events, talks and exhibitions.
A guaranteed day of fun for all the family, and the chance to have a sneak peek at buildings not normally open to the public, including a very popular World War II Air Raid Shelter underneath Tuesday Market Place. There is also a veteran bus arranged each year, free for everyone to use on the day. So, if you feel that some places are a bit far to get to on foot, simply hop on the bus.
The King’s Lynn 2018 Heritage Open Day Programme, containing more information about all the kinds of fascinating things that visitors can see and do during Heritage Open Day, is still available to download.
