About Wigram & Ware Ltd

Following the redevelopment of King’s Lynn town centre in the early 2000s Wigram and Ware moved from its previous premises in New Conduit Street to nearby Blackfriars Street. With this move came investment in new equipment and the chance to develop a bright, modern and spacious practice. We were the first in the town to offer Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and have recently added audiology to our list of services.
