One of the unique attractions worth seeing in King’s Lynn is the grand St. Margaret’s Church, which houses a 17th century moon dial that tells the tide and not the time. An important historical landmark is the nearby 15th century St. Margaret’s House, once a steelyard and warehouse. Next door, the small Town Hall Museum has exhibits on the town from the Middle Ages through the 1950s, and strange exhibits include a basket made out of an armadillo. The King’s Lynn Festival held in July is the most important cultural gathering in the area. It has a diverse range of concerts and recitals of all kinds of music, from medieval to opera. The festival is preceded by Festival Too, a free rock and roll festival. One of the best places to stay in town is Bank House, and outstanding bed and breakfast with a great location, friendly atmosphere, and comfortable rooms set inside an elegant town house.
