Throughout the year, the birdlife along our coast undergoes remarkable transformations due to the annual migrations and breeding cycles.

Our Towns


From its humble origins as a quaint fishing village, renowned for its prized oysters, Cleethorpes has blossomed into a beloved seaside destination, celebrated for its golden sandy beaches and a historic pier that tells tales of a bygone era.

The arrival of the railway in 1863 ushered in a new chapter, as visitors flocked to indulge in the invigorating sea waters and enjoyed taking in the sea air. The transformation during the Victorian era left its mark on the town, evident in the charming promenades, the Pier Gardens, and the iconic Cleethorpes Pier itself.

The bustling St Peter’s Avenue and nearby High Street boast plenty of independent businesses, while the area offers a range of accommodation. Choose from comfortable hotels and welcoming bed and breakfasts, or camping and caravanning options. The town is a great destination for family stays and fun!

The range of attractions and a warm welcome guarantees cherished memories for our holiday visitors.


Our Towns


Legend has it that Grimsby owes its name to Grim, a courageous Danish fisherman who rescued the infant Prince Havelok of Denmark from the clutches of the sea, bringing him safely to Lincolnshire, where he would grow into a remarkable figure. The tale has been immortalized in a poem composed between 1280 and 1310, weaving a mysterious narrative into the town’s history.

Once hailed as the world’s largest fishing port, modern-day Grimsby has evolved into a thriving hub, at the forefront of the offshore wind industry and a centre for seafood processing.

Proudly gracing the local skyline, and standing at an impressive 309 feet tall, Grimsby Dock Tower is an architectural marvel that drew inspiration from the Palazzo Publico in Siena, Italy.

Grimsby has become synonymous with the food industry, hosting hundreds of food-related businesses. The town’s culinary legacy continues to flourish, with exciting developments underway as part of a visionary 25-year plan. These dynamic changes are set to revitalise North East Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas, promising a future of abundant leisure and entertainment options for residents and visitors alike.


Our Towns


Immingham has a rich history dating back to the medieval period, with a notable connection to the Mayflower Pilgrims who embarked on their historic journey to America in 1620. This small settlement played a pivotal role in their story.

To find out more about Immingham’s ties to the Pilgrims, visitors can spend an afternoon at Immingham Museum before following the Pilgrim’s Heritage Trail. You can further the experience with a scenic walk in nearby Mayflower Woods. After exploring, unwind with a cup of coffee and a tasty slice of cake at a local tea room.

The early 1900s marked a significant turning point in Immingham’s history with the construction of Immingham dock. This ambitious project, created to handle the abundant coal traffic coming into Grimsby, brought employment to the town.

King George V arrived to open the dock in 1912. The result was not only the creation of the new dock but also the establishment of an entire community, affectionately known as ‘Tin Town.’ The new community contained homes, shops, pubs, and even a hospital.

Since the early 20th century, one building from the original ‘Tin Town’ remains—the ‘Tin Bungalow’. Restored to resemble a tin home in the early 1900s, the dwelling offers a window into the past and welcomes visitors to explore this remarkable piece of history.

Magical Sunrises

Just like witnessing a dramatic thunderstorm, the colourful arc of a rainbow or a beautiful mountain range, there is something truly magical about watching the sunrise, and Cleethorpes is a great place to see it.

Bruce Martin is a local photographer who is often out and about. One of the scenes he loves to capture is the sunrise at the beach. We asked him what inspires him for his top tips:

• Think about where you want to be and be there in plenty of time.

• Take lots of pictures – I regularly take over a hundred and throw 99 of them away, you just need that special one.

• Try to get something in the foreground, a tree, a person, a bird, a bench, the pier.

• Hold your camera or phone steady – there is not a lot of light and you can’t fix a blurred picture.

• Don’t just look for the sunrise. Take time to look up, around and behind you, as the magic is everywhere.

• Be safe around the tides. Check times before you leave and be mindful of sandbanks if you are walking around the beaches and dunes.

In Cleethorpes, the sun rises as early as 4.30am in June, around 6.30am in September, and 8.15am in December.  Bruce considers the best time of year is the early part of autumn, as it is neither too early nor too cold.  Happy snapping!

Heritage Highlights

North East Lincolnshire boasts a rich and vibrant history. Its Viking roots are woven with legends, including the tale of Grimsby town founder Grim and young Havelok, and connections to the Pilgrim Fathers in the 1600s. More recent history includes the area’s connection to the RAF in World War Two and the infamous Cod Wars of the Seventies.

Grimsby played a pioneering role in the maritime world when it introduced the first successful steam trawlers in the 1880s, earning its title as the ‘World’s Premier Fishing Port’. Thanks to these innovations and the expansion of the railway system, fresh fish from the town became available nationwide, contributing to the rise of the beloved national dish, ‘Fish and Chips’.

Grimsby’s Fishing Heritage Centre offers visitors the chance to delve into our relationship with the sea, sharing tales of Grimsby’s trading past and the challenges faced by courageous fishermen in their quest to bring home the catch. Don’t miss the chance to visit the ‘Ross Tiger,’ moored behind the centre, for a guided tour that offers a glimpse into life aboard a traditional side-trawler.

Paint the Town Proud

Paint the Town Proud, led by Creative Start Arts in Health CIC, was centred around capturing the heritage of North East Lincolnshire.

The aim was to deliver impactful artwork combining creative media, digital technology, storytelling, and photographic exhibitions. Paint the Town Proud was produced in collaboration with several local, national, and international artists, creative organisations, community groups and commercial partners across several venues and key locations throughout North East Lincolnshire.

Community was a significant aspect of the project; it was a way to showcase how proud locals are with their heritage, and a way to connect with the community.

Take a look at the map to find some featured murals across the resort and as the project continues, further murals will be added to the area.

The heart of Cleethorpes

Between 2024 and 2026 will be an exciting time for Cleethorpes, with a number of projects happening around the resort.

A new building is earmarked for the land opposite our historic pier, which will create a new market place for tourists and locals. In the historic heart of the town, a new, half-mile long garden is being created for people to use and enjoy.

There is also much work taking place on residential and commercial buildings across the seafront areas, including several with interesting Victorian features. Spend a moment on Alexandra Road, where you will find the Pier Gardens, and look up at the gorgeous, restored balconies and freshly renovated and painted shop fronts, or head down to the Sea View Quarter where you will pass the Royal Navy Club, which enjoyed a full renovation in 2023.

Many of these projects have been developed as a result of talking with people about what they want to see and do in the resort. Over the coming 18 months, there are lots of opportunities for people to get involved along the way – if you’re in the resort, and have the chance, we’d love to hear from you!

In the meantime, if you see work going on around the centre of Cleethorpes, it’s probably part of one of our fantastic projects.

We know that parking in the resort is a key priority – if you’re able to, please use Grant Street car park – just 5 mins walk from the North Prom, which itself has plenty of things to enjoy!
