Clifton House is the most important house
in the historic town of King’s Lynn. A merchant’s house in
the heart of the town, it retains an amazing series of
historic interiors dating from the 13th to the 18th
centuries and is Grade 1 listed. Features of interest
include two tiled floors from the later 13th century (the
largest in-situ tiled floors in any secular building in
Britain); the 14th-century vaulted undercroft; the
five-storey Elizabethan tower and a series of rooms created
by the architect Henry Bell in 1700.
The house is a
privately owned family home, but is open to visitors on a
number of occasions during the year.
