In 2015 Lynn celebrates 10 years as a member of the New Hanseatic League founded in 1980. Its 183 towns have a population of 25 million across 16 nations in nothern Europe, but all share a Hanseatic heritage. The only English members are King's Lynn and Hull.
This walk aims to raise awareness and appreciation of Lynn's fascinating Hanseatic heritage. Its origins are to be found in the 14th and 15th centuries when the Norfolk port was a prominent English partner of the German Hanse whose head cities were Lübeck and Hamburg.
The tour will finish at around 7.30pm with a short tour of Hanse House, the sole surviving trading post of the medieval German Hanse in England.
