King’s Lynn’s new visitor moorings are situated on South Quay adjacent to the historic heart of King’s Lynn. The quay itself provides a select choice of bar, restaurant and tea room facilities, whilst all the facilities of the town centre are just a few minutes walk away. These new visitor pontoons offer a fantastic opportunity to sail directly into and stay at the heart of this truly historic town.
The pontoons are easily accessible to sea-going craft, but can also be accessed by craft from the Inland waterway network. See the King’s Lynn (River Great Ouse) Navigation Map here, and make a booking availability enquiry here.
Please refer to the ‘User Marine Wildlife Protection Voluntary Code of Conduct’ before your stay at the King’s Lynn Visitor Pontoons.
Access into King’s Lynn from the Wash and along the River Great Ouse is characterised by restricted access due to tidal conditions and tidal flows. The main channels are well surveyed and buoyed and are suitable for navigation day and night for any craft. However navigation outside of the buoyed channels cannot be advised for any leisure craft. Be sure to read our Guidance and Information page for further information.

King’s Lynn Conservancy Board maintains an informative website which has a wide range of information for visiting craft and downloadable chart extracts.
