This is an interesting monument. I included it in a walk around Kings Lynn. Walking the town gave much needed perspective.

Lookup any image of Kings Lynn and your sure to be presented with this (now) free-standing octagonal tower, once part of a large priory. For the reason alone, it's worth a glimpse, but 10-minutes is all you need.

Only the tower remains of this old church in nice gardens. It has been well restored and the area where the nave was is well marked out by a small wall. There is a light show projected at night onto the tower

Only standing part of a much bigger medieval complex set in nice gardens with a war memorials, would love to have seen it in its full medieval glory. Shame about the three pissheads on the park bench

Grey Friars Tower is a very understated landmark in King's Lynn. It is a lovingly restored ruin set in very well kept gardens. A diagram of the Monestry helps you understand how the remains featured as a whole. Most interesting and worth visiting.

Back in the middle ages the Greyfriars Tower was part of a large complex in the centre of the town, but following Henry VIII's dissolution it fell into disrepair, and all that's left above ground is the tower, wonderfully preserved.
