​The Eastern, coastal town of Grimsby is located almost directly across the country from Liverpool, and is found just south of the Humber River Estuary. The town therefore unsurprisingly has a long-lasting history in fishing and naval history, including playing a large part in the Cod Wars in the twentieth century. Grimsby still proudly shows its history in fishing-related economy, with one of the many attractions in the town being the Fishing Heritage Centre. The proud history and culture of the many fishermen who risked their lives to meet demands within the fishing industry is still remembered to this day all over the town.

Aside from the distinct culture of the town, it is not an isolated and desolate place that is completely stuck in the past – far from it in fact, and it is easily accessible from other areas of the country. The town is close to the M180 and has several A-roads running through or nearby, including the A16 and A180. Grimsby also has the Grimsby Town railway station and is very close to the Humberside Airport.

In addition to the various nature parks and outside attractions around Grimsby, which include the People’s Park and Cleethorpes Country Park, being the coastal town that it is, there are also 4 and a half miles of sandy beach alongside Cleethorpes coast to visit on sunny days, and get the second-to-none, fresh seaside breeze.
