Christmas at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre

10:54 am, Friday, 9th December 2022 - 1 year ago


From winter warmers in the cafe, to fascinating stories of life at sea, you’ll be sure to have the whole family hooked at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre this Christmas.

The museum is open 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday, but will see a slight change to its opening days between Christmas and New Year.

Below is a list of their opening days for the festive season:

  • Friday 23 December to Tuesday 27 December: CLOSED
  • Wednesday 28 December – Friday 30 December: OPEN
  • New Year’s Eve – Monday 2 January: CLOSED
  • From Tuesday 3 January onwards: OPEN

Warm yourself up and grab a hot drink in the Galley Café. They have plenty of winter warmers to take your fancy. Enjoy a variety of cakes, sandwiches, toasties, paninis and more.

If you’re struggling for gift ideas, take a look in their gift shop and grab a unique gift for that special someone. They’ve got calendars, British wool knitted fishing jumpers, mugs, local books, posters and more.

And for the first time, the shop will be selling its very own Grimsby-inspired Christmas cards, featuring our very own Ross Tiger, Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre and Grimsby Town Hall basking in a flurry of snow.

Look around the museum and take in the festive street scene with displays in shop windows and Christmas decorations in the Freeman’s Arms pub.

Please note, Ross Tiger is still currently closed to the public following major renovation works to the deck.
