If you’re looking for something to do this holiday, why not head to the Discover North East Lincolnshire website for some great ideas on getting out and about in the fresh air.

Packed full of information about things to do, there’s plenty of ideas on the website on how to get out and about for free when you’re at a loose end.

If you’re fancying a stroll in the centre of Grimsby, why not take a walk through St James Square and enjoy some of the new public art after you’ve done your sales shopping?

The Murmurations, unveiled earlier this year, is a piece of sculptural art, featuring outline images of the people (and animals) of North East Lincolnshire. Lots of people had their photos taken by the artist, Annabel McCourt, and these were converted into little copper sculptures.

Or you could take a walk along the pathway that leads between St James Hotel and the Minster. There’s lots of etched words in the pathway that have come from the artist talking with local people – including tales from the past as well as local words and phrases.

If you’re in Cleethorpes, the beach is the obvious place to take some time out and just listen to the waves on the shore. But there’s hidden gems in the Cleethorpes Country Park and along the coastal pathway.

Immingham has a lovely walk through the Mayflower Woods, and there’s plenty of options of walks through our parkland and villages in the Lincolnshire Wolds too.

And if you want to stretch your legs a bit more, there’s plenty of walking routes available, from short ones to do with young children to the links to the 25 mile Wanderlust Way – all available for free from

The Love Exploring app, available for free on both Apple and Android, has some great interactive trails on already. It’s great for getting the children to hunt for virtual reality planets and dinosaurs too. You could even learn as you walk with the Cleethorpes Heritage Trail!

For the keen cyclists, there’s routes available from 4.5km long, suitable to do with children on new bikes to a whopping 43km for the more experienced. The link for that one is

So head on over to the website, have a root around and plan a few days out over the festive period!
