There can be few more imposing hotels in the east of England than the Dukes Head. Its striking powder-blue façade, a study in Georgian elegance, is as much a part of King’s Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place as the stalls that have traded here for generations. It’s the quintessential market town hotel – a handsome hostelry with history at every turn, restored and restyled for the discerning twenty-first century traveller.
Stay here and you’ll join quite a guest list. Political icons; princesses; the who’s who of King’s Lynn’s past – the Dukes Head has played host to them all. Today, period charm meets contemporary chic, spacious rooms envelope you in comfort, and the very best local produce is served – in an acclaimed restaurant and a buzzing new bar.
Welcome to the Dukes Head, a four-star stay that makes a beautiful base for discovering one of England’s most unspoiled corners.
There’s nothing quite like that Friday feeling. Celebrate the weekend’s arrival with a well-earned escape – a delicious two-course dinner, an overnight stay in style and a leisurely full English breakfast the next morning, to be precise. And did somebody say cream tea? You know you deserve it, and it’s all yours from just £99.
Artisan coffee, inventive cocktails, fine wines and fabulous, flavourful food – the Dukes Head is a dining destination for every occasion that never misses an opportunity to showcase Norfolk’s best. Massey & Co is a former bank turned buzzy bar and lounge, while Turners puts the art into à la carte, with a contemporary twist on traditional British fare and a coveted AA Rosette for its food and service.

Our first visit to the Dukes Head was in 1971 which we enjoyed very much. So coming back to Kings Lynn I wanted to stay again. We were not disappointed, of course the inside has been updated and the hotel made larger in back. Reception and check in was easy, efficient, and very friendly.

Very modern lovely rooms, and a very luxurious bathroom. Good service but you're also not bothered unnecessarily so you can really switch off. A nice bar and seating area downstairs. Good location for restaurants and the corn exchange too!
Had a lovely 2 night break at the Dukes on their summer special break , which included afternoon tea, a three course evening meal and a lovely breakfast both mornings . We were in the newer part of the hotel as my Mum uses a wheelchair and it was good access with a lift . The staff were very friendly , a special mention to Emma in the bar , she was lovely . I would highly recommend this hotel , the location is great
First class stay in pretty much every respect, very friendly, helpful staff at all times, superb prosecco afternoon tea on arrival, excellent breakfast choices and a delicious evening meal worthy of a top restaurant. Clean and extremely efficient in all respects, will definitely stay here in the future. Great location, I don't think that we could have chosen better. Many thanks to all the staff.
We stayed on bank holiday weekend and enjoyed afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast at the hotel. The afternoon tea was delicious and our room was very pretty. There was a great choice for breakfast and staff were extremely accommodating. Drinks at Massey and Co adjoining bar topped off our evening. We will definitely be staying again.
We have stayed here many times while visiting family. We are never disappointed and it just seems to improve on each visit. Afternoon tea was wonderful and the new cocktail is beautiful. Location is right on Tuesday market square couldn't be more central.
