North East Lincolnshire Council

Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Great Grimsby as the ‘world’s premier fishing port’ at our award winning attraction. 

Discover life for British trawlermen in a job described as ‘the most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK’. Climb aboard the historic ‘Ross Tiger’ trawler to experience the conditions aboard one of our earliest surviving diesel side-trawlers!

Fishing has often been described as one of the toughest jobs in the world. The Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre aims to take you back 60 years to discover life for our trawlermen and their families, both at home and at sea. Bring along the whole family and experience the sights, sounds, smells and even the movements of life as a 1950’s trawlerman. Our beautifully crafted interactive displays are either carefully recreated or made from original trawler fixtures and fittings, accurately reassembled within the attraction!

Visit us at Alexandra Dock, Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, DN31 1UZ or contact us by emailing, or by telephone on 01472 323345. Follow the Fishing Heritage Centre on social media on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
