Museum
“National Fishing Heritage Centre provides a fascinating insight into Grimsby's maritime history, so why not sign up as a crewmember and find out why fishing has often been described as one of the toughest jobs in the world! Discover what life was like for trawler men (and their families), as you and the kids navigate your way around the heritage centre, complete with sounds and smells! The kids will love the interactive displays, with a chance to dress up as a fisherman or apprentice. You can also visit the dockside shop and get some fish and chips, and join the fisherman in the Freeman's Arms, before experiencing a moving deck.”

“Great for a wander round to see the wild life - either on foot or bike. Park Runs are held at 9.0 a.m. every Saturday too. A speciality is the "Doggy Swimming Pool" - hilarious!”

Fish & Chip Shop
$$
“Voted as some of the greatest fish and chips served up in the UK. Restaurant only not a takeaway fish and chip shop, we would advise booking ahead. Not the cheapest but definitely the best in Cleethorpes. ”
