Culture, events and tourism

Why not sample the delights of North East Lincolnshire from Immingham to Ashby Cum Fenby this English Tourism Week.

Organised by VisitEngland, the campaign looks to shine a light on some of the hidden gems the country has to offer. With Easter and Spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time to exhibit what North East Lincolnshire has offer.

Using the new food map, created by Taste Lincolnshire and Discover North East Lincolnshire, you can explore great restaurants, cafes and tea rooms along with superb food producers and local food retailers. From afternoon tea to traditional fish & chips, there’s a great choice for breakfast, lunch and tea across the breadth of the borough.

If you’re in Grimsby, make sure to check out Abbeygate and Freeman Street Market or Sea View Quarter and St. Peter’s Avenue if you’re in Cleethorpes. Both offer a wide range of cafes and restaurants that are perfect for any occasion.

However, if you fancy doing something different, why not try out a walking or cycling trail to take in some of the best sights around.

If you fancy going on a bike ride, why not go on the iconic Fisherman and Ships tour through Grimsby. Designed for older children and adults, this 12 mile route will take you around 90 minutes showing off all the ships entering and exiting the Immingham and Grimsby ports.

However, if you fancy being on terra firma, why not walk the Immingham Pilgrims’ Trail, starting at Immingham Museum? Your walk can be extended into the Mayflower Woods walking route. Learn about the town’s history and its link to the Mayflower Pilgrims of over 400 years ago.  Suited for dog walkers, Mayflower Wood explores some of the 120 acres of woodland taking in some historical sites like St. Andrew’s Church which dates back to the 13th century.

In Cleethorpes, there is also the seafront walking trail taking you through the main sites of the seaside resort starting and ending at the Boating Lake.

As part of English Tourism Week, local tourism businesses are invited to join the annual tourism event at Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway on Thursday 21 March where they can pick up the new visitor guide, walk & cycle route guides, the new food map and local attraction leaflets ready for a busy summer season ahead.

Interested businesses are asked to contact [email protected] to book on to the event which starts at 10am.
