Our Beaches

To stretch the legs, walk south from the leisure centre and explore the sand dunes. This part of the beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is an excellent place for bird watching – make sure you have your binoculars! Keep going and you’ll find a lovely stretch of sand enjoyed by many including dog walkers, kite boarders and horse riders. From water sports to rest and relaxation, Cleethorpes has something to offer visitors of all ages. Our dedicated Resort team operates throughout the year keeping you safe whenever you visit. From their offices on the Central Promenade, opposite the pier entrance, you can hire specially designed beach wheelchairs. Whilst you’re there our resort information team will happily answer any questions you have. Finally, when you’re out of breath, relax, stop and refuel, there are plenty of fantastic eateries – from fine dining to award-winning fish and chips, Cleethorpes has it all!

The long stretch of coastline is split into four areas, North and Central Proms, Marine Embankment and Humberston Fitties with an area of the saltmarsh providing the perfect spot for bird and nature watching. The promenade, road and a footpath run the entire length of the beaches. The area adjacent to the main beaches is a traditional style promenade, which runs from the North Prom beach via Central Prom to Cleethorpes Leisure Centre. It then becomes a public bridal way with cycle, walking and land train lanes. Much of the beach in Cleethorpes is soft sand. However, there are mud warnings in force all year round along the length of the beach. Visitors are advised to check the tide times for advice on incoming tides. Find out more about our beaches on our website.

Family Fun The North East Lincolnshire coastline and the beautiful coastal town of Cleethorpes has plenty of traditional seaside family fun. Fly kites, build sandcastles, collect shells, take a dip in the water, or have a ride on one of the infamous donkeys. With a variety of attractions from the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway to the Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, there is something for everyone. Keep the family entertained by taking a trip to the Jungle Zoo and visiting the Furry Favourites. Catch the latest blockbuster at Parkway Cinema or make it a strike at Cleethorpes Ten Pin Bowling Centre. If you enjoy history than take a journey back in time to see the old prison cells at Grimsby’s Time Trap Museum and uncover the town’s colourful past. The Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby is a multiaward-winning attraction which is great for the whole family. The centre will take you back in time and the hands-on interactive museum will give you an experience of a bygone era. As well as being home to a range of attractions, North East Lincolnshire’s natural landscape is a major attraction in itself. From the stunning sandy beaches to the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, it presents us with the perfect outdoor playground.

The Great Outdoors 15 minutes from our towns lies our beautiful countryside. Country walks and cycle routes are in abundance which will suit all abilities. Our coast also plays host to some great water activities throughout the year. Walking We have beautiful open countryside within minutes of our coast, featuring miles of walks and several attractive villages. A great reason to grab your walking boots and enjoy a day out in the great outdoors. Discover nature reserves, woods, parks, coastal villages, and countryside tracks. Enjoy strolls through our various parks, woodland trails, and beachfront meanders. For those who enjoy a longer ramble in the countryside, why not experience the 20-mile circular walk ‘The Wanderlust Way’. Visit our website to download one of our walking guides.

12


Running Whatever your running route of choice is – whether its urban, countryside, coastal or park – North East Lincolnshire has it all. Why not combine a visit to our lovely area and have a go at one of our running events. Head to the website to find out more. Cycling North East Lincolnshire is perfect for cycling. Large open skies, quiet country lanes and across stunning ridge-tops with stunning vistas will make the journey more enjoyable. Don’t forget to stop off at one of the many cosy village pubs along the way. The Cycle Hub in Grimsby and Cleethorpes have a range of cycles and equipment to hire for adults and children and with many maps with the various routes to try, from the child friendly ‘Ice cream on the prom’ route to the very challenging and hilly 26-mile route ‘Hint of the Wolds’ there is no stopping you.

13


On the Water We have many great opportunities to get out on the water, after all Cleethorpes was known in the 19th century for becoming a fashionable place to ‘take to its medicinal waters’. Try Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) or kayaking, with taster sessions and courses for all ages. Kite boarding is another fun adrenaline fuelled activity on the water. A more relaxing activity would be hiring a boat at Cleethorpes boating lake or book a trip to try your hand at some deep-sea fishing in the North Sea. Parks and open spaces With more than 50 parks and open spaces to enjoy in North East Lincolnshire, it’s a great place to enjoy the great outdoors. The wonderful Victorian People’s Park has 23 acres of grounds with a central lake, a lovely spot for a picnic. Cleethorpes Country Park has 158 acres of natural parkland with a lake for fishing, surrounded by an accessible footpath suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Our four-legged friends are not forgotten as the lake has a dedicated dog swimming area. The weekly ParkRun take place here. If you prefer woodland then 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. 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 more than 1000 years and it is even mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) as the village of Bradley and the ‘broad-wood’. Mayflower Wood in Immingham is a 120 acre woodland as well as family picnic areas, nature trails and a looped walkway connecting local villages.

14


Take a stroll through the Pier Gardens in Cleethorpes and say hello to Dudley the Donkey – a statue marking the significance of our seaside donkeys. Wander through the gardens past trees, shrubs and flower beds to the waterfall cascading from the top of the gardens down onto Central Promenade. A little further on, you will approach Ross Castle, a Victorian folly dating to around 1885 when the Pier Gardens were first built. Further along the coast you will find Donna Nook nature reserve, a 10km stretch which the grey seals make their home in the salt marsh 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 consists of woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits and is some of Britain’s finest countryside.

15


Nature and... Birds are an important part of this landscape, particularly in winter. The North East Lincolnshire coastline is the gateway of the Humber Estuary. Ornithologists regard it as one of the top 10 estuaries in Europe.

The birdlife along our coast changes throughout the year due to the annual migrations and breeding cycles. Cleethorpes is a great place to see wading birds out on the mudflats and saltmarsh which provides essential food for the 150,000 birds that visit each year during the winter months. Spot Knot, Dunlin, Oystercatchers, Bar-tailed Godwits, Brent Geese, Redshanks, Curlew and more along the sandbanks. 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 place for Larks, Snow Buntings, Reed Buntings, Yellow Hammers and flocks of Twite and Linnet to wade in the high tide to feed.

16


Wildlife

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 and Greylag geese and ducks have made this their home, so why not take the opportunity to feed our feathered friends. The Lincolnshire Wolds which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty consists of woodland, grassland and chalk pits providing important habitats for rare flowers and wildlife. With many walking routes and trails throughout this area, it makes for a lovely day out, don’t forget to bring your binoculars to spot the wildlife. Donna Nook Nature Reserve is a short drive along the coast and is a fantastic spot to get up close to the area’s grey seals. Every winter the seals make the 10k stretch their home to give birth to their pups in the salt marsh.

17


Heritage highlights

Our vibrant past dates back to the Danes, with the legend of Grim, links to the Pilgrim Fathers, and more recent history involving everything from being home to an RAF base in World War Two to the Cod Wars in the 1970s. Grimsby pioneered the first successful steam trawlers in the 1880’s and became the “World’s Premier Fishing Port”. Fresh fish was available nationwide, and thanks to the expansion of the railway system, the national dish of Fish and Chips became possible. A visit to the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre will tell the story of Grimsby’s trading past and the dangers trawler men had to endeavour to bring fish home to Grimsby. Visit the “Ross Tiger” which is moored behind the centre, for a guided tour to experience conditions of life aboard a traditional side-trawler. A trip to Immingham Museum will explain the tale of the Pilgrim Families and the connection to the 1620 voyage on the Mayflower ship to America and more recently how it grew to become one of the largest ports in the UK by tonnage.

18


Waltham Windmill is an iconic historic building situated just a short drive out of town. The sixsailed working mill was built between 1878 and 1880 by John Saunderson of Louth. Whilst you’re there, take a trip to see the Museum of Rural Life which incorporates the RAF Grimsby Exhibition. Grimsby Minster is one of the iconic buildings in the heart of Grimsby Town and hosts events throughout the year. Whilst in Grimsby visit the Town Hall and the Time Trap Museum to discover the town’s colourful past as you venture into the depths of the prison cells.

Our Towns Grimsby

According to legend, Grimsby was founded by a Danish fisherman called Grim who heroically saved the infant Prince Havelok of Denmark from being drown in the sea and brought him to Lincolnshire where he grew up. A poem composed around 1280-1310 is written about the tale. Once the world’s largest fishing port, Grimsby is today a thriving modern town at the heart of the offshore wind industry. Famous landmarks and rich history characterise the town. Proudly dominating the local skyline in celebration of the town’s fishing heritage is the 309 feet tall Dock Tower which follows the style of the Palazzo Publico in Siena, Italy. Grimsby is synonymous with the food industry employing thousands of people in the 500+ foodrelated businesses. Currently undergoing radical transformation as part of a 25-year vision, exciting leisure developments are taking place in the town centre and beyond. Cleethorpes Once a small fishing village famous for its oysters, Cleethorpes is well known for its golden sandy beaches and historic pier. The advent of the railways in 1863 brought visitors to enjoy bathing in the sea and the “taking of medicinal waters”. This Victorian era created the resort that you’ll see much of when you visit from its promenades, pier gardens and Cleethorpes Pier itself. A host of activities and experiences await. Enjoy being out on the water, meander through the sand dunes along the coastline and enjoy the coastal nature reserve, a haven for migratory birds and much more.

24


The resort features several hotels and bed and breakfast accommodation along with camping and caravanning options. Shopping and family fun are key to the town of Cleethorpes. A bustling high street featuring local, independent businesses and a range of attractions awaits for holiday memories to be made. Immingham Once a key role in the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims who fled England in 1620 to begin one of the first colonies in America, Immingham has existed as a small settlement since the medieval period. You can spend an afternoon exploring the town’s link to Pilgrims with a visit to Immingham Museum and following the Pilgrims Heritage Trail which can also be extended with a walk in Mayflower Woods. Enjoy coffee and cake at one of the tea rooms in the town. In the early 1900s, construction of Immingham dock began. Built to cope with the ever-increasing coal traffic at Grimsby port, thousands of labourers were employed to create the new dock and hundreds of houses, shops and pubs and even a hospital were created to support this new community which became known as “Tin Town”. The dock was officially opened by King George V in 1912. You can learn about the town’s rich heritage at Immingham Museum. The one remaining building of Tin Town stands today. The Tin Bungalow has undergone renovations to transform it back into the early 1900s dwelling it once was, and you can now visit and look around.
