The Dukes Head Hotel stands on what was the Gryffen Inn until 1683 when it was demolished and replaced with the current building, by the architect Henry Bell. Once Mayor of King’s Lynn, Henry Bell also built the historic Custom House.
Completed in 1689, all that remains today of the Gryffen Inn is the main staircase at the front of the hotel.
The bank ‘Massey & Co’ was founded in what is now the Gryffens Restaurant and was there as an independent bank operated until 1930.
The place where people met, families gathered, occasions were marked, relationships were sparked. Places of life and soul, of connection and community. A much-loved backdrop to local life, and so often the setting for the stories that made it. So, to experience the hotel was to experience the place.
