Town Hall and Trinity Guildhall
Town Hall and Trinity Guildhall
The townhall of King's Lynn has existed since the early fifteenth century, between 1422 and 1428, when the Guildhall of the Holy Trinity was built. It is the most prominent feature of the townhall today with its steep arched roof, large window and chequered patterned exterior. The building was enlarged in 1624, when an extension with the same chequered style was added which now forms the main entrance to the townhall.

The arms of Elizabeth I can be seen above the main window on this building. They were removed from St James's Church on 7th August 1624. The arms of Charles II are above them, they were added 40 years later.

The townhall had a final expansion when a further extension in a similar chequered style front was added in 1895.
