There is a ferry service across the River Ouse between King's Lynn and West Lynn operating during the day.


It embarks from the ferry steps - down Ferry Lane off King Street, a couple of doors along from King's Lynn Arts Centre.

Crossing over the River Ouse to West Lynn allows a  walk along the boardwalk erected as part of the North Sea Haven Millennium improvements to the waterfront area.

Panoramic views of the waterfront, stretching from Boal Quay and the Nar Loop, stretch downstream along the South and Purfleet quays, past the Customs House, towards Fisher Fleet and the Lynn Docks.

On a sunny afternoon day it's a great way to take a short cut across the R. Ouse and see some great views of the historic waterfronts.

On  low tides the crew wear waders to bring the boat to the ramp, on extremely low tides passengers walk across a sandbar and climb steps up to the ferry. Kids love it!
