It might not quite seem like the weather for it yet. But King’s Lynn’s historic Tuesday Market Place has take its first step towards continental cafe culture.

Parts of the square, which were formerly used for car parking, were paved and pedestrianised, in a £1m revamp which began last summer. West Norfolk council said it hoped to make better use of the space by allowing restaurants and bars to have outside seating.

The Legacy Duke’s Head Hotel, King’s Lynn Corn Exchange and Prezzo all expressed an interest in creating a cafe culture. Prezzo has now installed tables and awnings outside its restaurant, on the corner of King Street.

“We believe ofering our customers the chance to eat and drink outside in line with what is commonly seen in the rest of Europe is something people will welcome,” a spokesman for the chain said.
