Customs House: Detail

Custom House, King's Lynn, Norfolk, UK. Rome has the Colosseum, Paris the Eifel Tower, and King's Lynn has the Customs House as its iconic building. See HERE for a typical iconic shot. The picture above was an attempt (some would say a desperate attempt) to do something different.


The C17th Custom House overlooks the Purfleet, which was one of four fleets of Lynn and the medieval harbour of the town. It was built in 1683 by Henry Bell in Palladian style with a statue of Charles II above the door.
