Details

The Red Mount is the highest point of The Walks offering elevated view points of the landscape from the structure itself and from the mound which partially surrounds it.

The structure is unique and its importance is reflected in its status as a Scheduled Ancient monument/Grade 1 listed building.

The late 15th Century Red Mount Chapel was a wayside chapel for pilgrims on their way to the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. The upper chapel of 1506 has a fan vaulted roof, further decorated with quatrefoils which inspired the design of the pilgrimage trail plaque.

Also featured in the Discover King's Lynn Heritage Trail map, free copies are available from King's Lynn Tourist Information Centre, and also featured in guided town walks in King's Lynn.

The Red Mount is open each year alongside the iconic South Gate from April to early September, and is also open during Heritage Open Day each year in early September.
Access is restricted and not suitable for wheelchair users (please call before your visit).

Both Red Mount Chapel and South Gate are open May to Mid-September on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1.00pm - 4.00pm. For all open days please phone 01553 763044 in advance to check details.
