Hanse House, Our beautiful grade 1 listed building

Hanse House is a fantastic wedding venue hire option. The Grade I listed building, situated on the picturesque quayside of King’s Lynn, stands as a testament to the town’s rich maritime history. Constructed in the 15th century, this unique structure once served as a hub for European traders and merchants from the Hanseatic League who sought to establish a stronghold for their commercial activities in the region. The stunning red brick façade and intricate timber framing of Hanse House have been painstakingly preserved, offering visitors a rare glimpse into the past. The character of the building provides a great backdrop to any wedding and adds a warm feel to ceremonies and receptions.
