Mini guide to Grimsby

     

Formerly the world's largest fishing port, Grimsby is today a vibrant and pleasant place which retains glimpses of its maritime glory.

A site not to be missed is the National Fishing Heritage Centre. The centre documents the town's history from the Vikings to the rise, fall and rebirth of the fishing industry. Outside the building is the Ross Tiger, a preserved trawler open to the public and providing a fascinating insight into the successes and tragedies of the fishing industry. Also worth seeing is the 19th century Dock Tower, which stands sentinel over the docks and was used as a marker by German planes during World War II.

Walking enthusiasts should head out into the flat Lincolnshire countryside which surrounds Grimsby or maybe visit one of the nearby seaside resorts like Cleethorpes and walk along the promenade or the beach, particularly when the tide goes out revealing an endless stretch of sand.

For shopping visit Freshney Place, a huge retail centre containing all the major high street stores. For more unusual items go to Abbeygate Shopping Centre with its antiques and art galleries or stop at the old market on Freeman Street. When in Grimsby do not forget to try the fish and chips which Grimbians swear are the best in the world. Takeaways selling this dish are on practically every street. For culture head to the Grimsby Auditorium which hosts regular plays, drama and comedy events.

Nearby areas of interest include Hull, with its famous bridge spanning the Humber, and an ultra-modern aquarium. You can also visit the lively beach resort of Cleethorpes with its pier, amusement arcades, long sands and vibrant nightlife.

Driving from London, take the A1 to Newark and then the A46 through Lincoln to Grimsby, or take the M180 running off the M18. To catch a train for Grimsby, head to Doncaster from where the journey will take you 50 minutes.
