Our coastal town of Cleethorpes plays host to miles of lovely sandy coastline. Our beautiful beach is cleaned daily and patrolled by our Beach Safety Officers. It’s easy to relax, take time out and breathe in the fresh sea air. Enjoy the sand between your toes whilst admiring the scenery or head out onto the water and try stand up paddle boarding, sea kayaking or kiteboarding. There are places to hire out equipment and take taster sessions, so go on and dive right in! When you have had enough of the lovely beach, why not head onto the proms and enjoy a game of crazy golf, amuse yourself in the arcades or head towards the boating lake and feed the ducks. You can hire a rowing boat whilst you are there: the kids will love it. Don’t forget to try some of our fabulous sea food whilst your walking down the proms.

Or how about heading up to the North Prom, where you can take a sprint or try out the exercise benches due to be installed later this year. There are many fun things to do including crazy golf, ten pin bowling or try your luck in the amusement arcades. Enjoy a walk along the promenade and enjoy an ice cream from one of the many ice cream parlours along the seafront or hop on the land train if your legs are feeling tired.

Dogs are welcome on our main beach from October to April, but there are restrictions in Spring and Summer due to children playing on the beach and the infamous Cleethorpes donkeys. Dogs are free to roam on the beach from Cleethorpes Leisure Centre towards Humberston Fitties all year round. If you are unsure of your dog’s recall abilities then please keep them on a lead, especially near bird nesting areas.

In between the sunshine!

The East coast is one of the drier places in England but sometimes the sun doesn’t want to shine. A little rain shouldn’t spoil your fun, though, and North East Lincolnshire is a great place to visit whatever the weather. Escape inside to our many indoor attractions. Go for a strike at Cleethorpes Bowling Centre or spend a few hours watching the silver screen at Parkway Cinema. Pop into the many amusements along the promenade or find your way out of the Labyrinth Escape Rooms in Grimsby. Children will enjoy the soft play centres or the Jungle Zoo where they can get up close to furry critters. Alternatively, why not splash about at one of our leisure centres or get your skates on at Grimsby Ice Rink. If history and heritage is more to your liking, take a trip to the award-winning Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre where you can experience what life was like working in one of the most dangerous professions. North East Lincolnshire will keep you entertained rain or shine.

Cleethorpes Country Park is a great place for your dog to let off steam, there is even a dedicated doggy swimming area. Weelsby Woods is an open space with natural areas, open grassland and woods. Your dog will have so much fun and in the summer months and at most weekends there’s something for you as well with the café ice cream parlour on the site. 10

With over 50 parks and open spaces to enjoy such as Cleethorpes Country Park, Peoples Park, Weelsby Woods and Homestead Park to name a few, North East Lincolnshire has many wonderful outdoor spaces. The Victorian People’s Park has 23 acres of grounds with a central lake playing host to mallard, coot and Canada geese. It’s a lovely spot to while away an afternoon and enjoy a picnic and in the summer months hosts various music events at the Victorian band stand. Cleethorpes Country Park has 158 acres of natural parkland with a lake for fishing, surrounded by an accessible footpath. The regular Park Run on a Saturday morning takes place here. Weelsby Woods is an open space which contains natural areas as well as open grassland, large play facilities and car parking. In 2010 Weelsby Woods was designated a Local Nature Reserve.

Running and walking The beautiful open countryside of the Lincolnshire Wolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and features miles of walks and several attractive villages. Grab your walking boots and choose one of the many wonderful walks in North East Lincolnshire. We have gentle wanders, brisk coastal strolls or longer rambles in the countryside such as the 20 mile circular route the ‘Wanderlust Way’. This route was named to commemorate the life and work of James Neville Cole, founder of the ‘Wanderlust Rambling Club’ ( It starts and finishes at Bradley Woods, passing through attractive small villages and across woods and farmland of the undulating Lincolnshire Wolds, from where there are views across the mouth of the Humber Estuary. For more walks with downloadable maps please refer to https://www. or drop into our Tourist Information Centre for free maps and advice to help you plan your route. If running is your preference, aside from beating your way around our beautiful countryside and coastline, why not have a go at one of many staple running events in the calendar – whether it’s the Gy10K, a circular town-based 10K held in the summer, or Santa Strides in the winter, or for something more challenging, why not consider the ABP Coastal Half Marathon? Grimsby and Cleethorpes offer some great routes with spectacular scenery.

Bradley and Dixon Woods together make up a local nature reserve on the south side of Grimsby. There has been woodland on this site for over 1000 years and it is even mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) as the village of Bradley and the ‘broad-wood’.



Cycling North East Lincolnshire is perfect cycling country under open skies, along country lanes, quiet roads, across stunning ridge-tops and be inspired by the amazing vistas. We also have many routes for all ages, abilities and levels of confidence, including bike friendly rides for children and advanced and challenging routes for those more experienced riders. From the child friendly ‘ice cream on the prom’ route to the 16 mile circuit ‘Ploughshares, carts and manor houses’ to the very challenging and hilly 26 mile route ‘ Hint of the Wolds’. Whatever your ability, there is a route for you. The Grimsby and Cleethorpes Cycle Hubs, located conveniently at the railway stations, have a range of maps with routes to try and have a range of bikes to hire suitable for adults and children with helmets, lights and locks included. Please visit www.cyclehublincs. for more information.

Kite boarding is another fun adrenaline fueled activity out on the water with taster sessions and one to one training available.

Golf Mad?...

You can stay and play as the 5 star lodges overlook the beautifully manicured golf course each boasting a private sunken hot tub and wifi. Cleethorpes Golf Club is an 18 hole mature flat coastal course. The course is easy walking and a challenge for all, especially when the breeze is up.

Waltham Windmill golf club offers an excellent and challenging golf course for members and visitors alike.

For something a little more relaxing why not hire a boat at Cleethorpes boating lake or have a go at some deep sea fishing. Your four legged friends have not been forgotten with a dedicated doggy swimming lake situated at Cleethorpes Country Park.



For the nature lovers

Cleethorpes is a great place to visit if you want to see our feathered friends, especially in the winter months. North East Lincolnshire’s coastline is the gateway to the Humber Estuary and ornithologists regard it as one of the top 10 estuaries in Europe and a UK hotspot for migrating birds. The wide variety of waders and estuary birds that can be seen in winter is outstanding and they do come close inshore as they follow the tide. It’s important to avoid disturbing the birds so please remember to keep yourself and pets at a distance. The beach between Thorpe Park caravan site and Wonderland is predominately extensive low sand flats more than a kilometre wide and includes a developing saltmarsh. Beyond the saltmarsh is a kilometre of sand bank which is an important high tide wader roost. This area is internationally significant for over 10,000 Knot, over 3,000 Dunlin, over 1,000 Oystercatchers and 500 Bar-tailed godwits. More than 100 Brent geese use the muddy areas Redshanks and Curlew are always present. There is a hard surface footpath and cycleway stretching some four and a half kilometres along Marine Walk and Promenade giving views along the length of the Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Local Nature Reserve. The whole area is an important high tide wader roost for feeding larks, snow buntings, reed buntings, yellow hammers and flocks of Twite and Linnet.

Cleethorpes boating lake lies at the southern end of the resort and consists of two lakes with a connecting channel. The grassed area surrounding the lake is ideal for picnics. Many Barnacle or Greylag geese and ducks have made this their home, so why not take the opportunity to feed our feathered friends or hire a boat to continue your exploration (seasonal). Cleethorpes Country Park is a 64 hectare oasis which includes a 7 acre lake, grassland, wildflower meadows, wetland and woodland. The lake has a designated dog swimming area and the path around is ideal for wheelchair users and pushchairs. On a Saturday morning you will see up to 200 people participating in the local Park Run. Mayflower Wood is a 120 acre woodland which includes trees and shrubs from a variety of species as well as family picnic areas, nature trails and a looped walkway connecting local villages. Further along the coast you will find Donna Nook nature reserve, a 10km stretch which is often used by the Royal Air Force as a practice bombing range. This doesn’t deter the wildlife and year after year each winter the grey seals make their home in the saltmarsh to give birth to their pups. The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is the Lincolnshire Wolds is the highest land in eastern England between Kent and Yorkshire. The landscape of the Wolds consists of woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits providing important habitats for rare flowers and wildlife and is some of Britain’s finest countryside.

Cleethorpes sand dunes, from the Leisure Centre to RSPB Tetney Marshes is a Local Nature Reserve and SSSI and is one of the best examples of a wildflower meadow in Lincolnshire: a June visit will see the spectacular display of orchids. 16


Take a piece of US home Docks Beers

Launched in 2018, Docks Beers consists of a 15 barrel brewery and taproom inside a deconsecrated church near the famous Grimsby docks. Visitors can watch the brewers at work making up to 20,000 pints a week. Their crafted beers are a hit with the locals and visitors alike and can be bought to take away in special packs along with branded t-shirts, caps and vinyl stickers. Docks Academy is a brand new venue above the taproom which will host live music, comedy, theatre and events in Grimsby which will open early 2020. Tours of the brewery take place twice a month. Forw4rd Drop by Forw4rd in the Market Place in Cleethorpes for unique branded ‘meggies’ clothing wear from bags, hoodies, hats and t-shirts. The name ‘meggies’ refers to our coastal town of Cleethorpes. It’s unclear where the name ‘meggies’ came from but there are a few theories. Some say Isaac’s Hill used to be called Meg’s Island, others say a ‘meggie’ was the cost of the tram fare from Grimsby to Cleethorpes. Another theory was anyone that was born on or above the hill in Cleethorpes was called a ‘meggie’ and according to legend was a woman called Meg who lured boats into Cleethorpes by a shining light when they became trapped on the rocks and lose their cargo, Meg would collect the ‘lost’ cargo for herself. Where ever the name originated from, it is still used to this present day and unique to our area so treat yourself to a branded ‘meggies’ wear where you will not find anywhere else!

Mayflower 400 anniversary In 1620, the Mayflower ship sailed from England carrying passengers who began one of the earliest colonies in America. Those passengers became known as the Pilgrims. Many were families from Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Before reaching America, the Pilgrims fled England for Holland. They made their historic escape from Immingham’s shores in 1608. Immingham is one of eleven towns and cities taking part in the national Mayflower partnership who have been working together to mark the 400-year anniversary of the Mayflower sailing in 2020. From November 2019, Immingham began with a range of exciting events and activities, some of which will leave a lasting legacy beyond 2020. A brand new exhibition – The Mayflower Pilgrims’ Journey of Discovery – has recently been put in the town’s museum which tells the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims and the special link with the town. The display includes an interactive touch screen table holding historical documents and maps as well as a section for children with fun games and the opportunity to test your knowledge of the pilgrims with a quiz. By early spring, a new pilgrim heritage trail will be installed, linking key sites for the visitor to learn about the pilgrims and their escape in 1608. In addition, a new website www.imminghamheritage. will go live and will highlight the town’s intriguing history including information about Immingham Dock, tin town and the importance of the railways.


Immingham is hosting a range of events and activities to commemorate Mayflower 400 in 2020. In February, the multi-award winning folk singer Seth Lakeman appeared at St Andrew’s church as part of his tour associated with his new album ‘A Pilgrim’s Tale’. The concert was at one of the first locations significant to the Mayflower story. On Tuesday 12 May, the town celebrates Immingham Pilgrims Day, the exact day that the Pilgrims fled from the banks of the Humber Estuary in 1608. It is hoped that children from local schools will participate on the day to learn more about the Pilgrims and their history. Immingham will host a community Mayflower Celebration Day on Saturday 13 June, fun for all the family and more. A guest lecture planned for Saturday 27 June at St Andrew’s church by Dr Anna Scott, Associate Lecturer at Lincoln University, who will give a fascinating talk about the Pilgrims, their escape in 1608 from our shores and their onward journey on the Mayflower to the New World. More plans are being made including the planting of a new Pilgrim 400 Apple tree and the year will conclude with ILLUMINATE IMMINGHAM 2020. Visit for latest information. 21

Heritage highlights

A visit to the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre Since Great Grimsby pioneered the first successful steam trawlers in the 1880s, the port rose to become described as the World’s Premier Fishing Port. Fresh fish was available nationwide and a national dish of Fish and Chips became possible. The success was not without cost. Thousands of men have lost their lives in the endeavour to bring fish home to Grimsby. The 1950’s alone saw the loss of 32 Grimsby trawlers. Discover the story of our trawler men as you sign on as a crew member for a journey back to the height of fishing. Here, you will experience the sights, sounds and smells of Great Grimsby’s past. Our original trawler interiors and accurate replicas will show you a glimpse of a fascinating way of life that will never be seen in the same way again. You’ll have a whole new appreciation for fish. The Ross Tiger, which is moored behind Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, is today thought to be the earliest surviving large diesel side trawler in the UK. She entered service in early 1957, just after the port celebrated 100 years since the opening of the first industrial fish dock in 1856. Take a guided tour to experience the conditions of life aboard a traditional side-trawler as part of your visit to our award winning museum.

Just a short drive out of town lies Waltham Windmill. This historic building is an iconic six storied, six sailed working mill built between 1878 to 1880 by John Saunderson of Louth. Visit the Museum of Rural Life in the grounds of Waltham Windmill which incorporates the RAF Grimsby Exhibition, or take a ride on the miniature railway and wander the unique craft units. Grimsby Minster is one of the iconic buildings in the heart of the town - well worth a look around just to enjoy the peaceful space. The Minster also hosts events through the year – keep a look out online for more. Great Grimsby Town Hall and Grimsby Time Trap Museum. Discover the town’s colourful past as you venture into the depths of the prison cells at Grimsby Town Hall. Through twisting corridors and winding stairs, you can piece together the town’s history. Visit the Greenwich Meridian Line in Cleethorpes situated along the coastal path, where east meets west. In 1884, zero degrees longitude was established by international agreement as the Greenwich Meridian. This was the world’s prime meridian for measuring longitude and a standard time now known as Greenwich Mean Time. It has been marked in Cleethorpes since the 1930s when a company called Hadfields Ltd of Sheffield presented a plate to be laid in the path and to test their new non-corroding steel – still there today. Guided walks are available highlighting historical hotspots.
