Town Guides launch new season of King's Lynn Supper Walks
The Town Guides’ new season of guided walks in historic Lynn gets under way on Tuesday at 6pm with a Supper Walk, hosted by Rathskeller.
The evening begins with a complimentary glass of Pimms and is followed by a gentle evening stroll with a chance to explore one of Lynn’s most important Grade 1-listed buildings.
After the guided walk, which lasts about an hour, the Rathskeller will serve a special two-course menu with wine.
The walk will be led by town guide, Ivor Rowlands, who said: “The idea of the Supper Walks is to provide an opportunity to provide an evening out to discover just one area of the historic town in a relaxed environment and then enjoy a meal afterwards in one of our lovely independent restaurants that are situated in important historic locations.”
Further Supper Walks are scheduled in the coming weeks with Market Bistro (May 7) and Bank House (June 4).
Regular scheduled walks will take place at 2pm every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from May until the end of October, and this year there will be more choices than ever.
Speaking at the launch of the new season of walks, Town Guides’ Chair, Doreen Leventhall said, “I’m really thrilled to be taking on the role of Chair at such an exciting time for the Guides. This year, we are introducing three brand new walks and have increased the number of Supper Walks. We will also be repeating the Festival Too Family-Friendly Walk, which was our most popular event in 2018.”
The new walks are “Victorian Transformation”, “The New Lande” and “Four Churches and a Chapel” and will all be held during Lynn’s Festival Month in July.
Details of all the Town Guides’ walks for 2019 can be found on their website at kingslynntownguides.co.uk or leaflets are available from Lynn Tourist Information Centre.
Apart from the Supper walks, all walks last between 1½ and 2 hours at a gentle stroll and cost £5 for adults (£4 for concessions) and just £1 for children. Fun worksheets for children of all ages are available free of charge when attending a walk with an adult.
