North East Lincolnshire is an attractive and diverse area on the South Bank of the Humber Estuary. It is an area of great contrasts; the traditional seaside resort of Cleethorpes, with its four miles of safe, sandy beaches; the historic fishing port of Grimsby and the picture postcard villages of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The area includes:-
Grimsby – the world famous port and Europe’s Food Town
Cleethorpes – the popular, blue flag, seaside holiday resort
Immingham – a focal point of heavy industry and logistics
Wolds Villages – an area of outstanding natural beauty
The area has a population of approximately 158,000 covering an area of 192 square kilometres. As the geographical area is quite small, commuting times are shorter and congestion is minimal, even at rush hour.
We are lucky enough to have Humberside Airport within a 20 minute drive of Grimsby which offers access to a number of destinations worldwide. The ferry port in Hull is less than an hour’s drive away, offering easy access to European destinations.
Housing in the area comes in all shapes and sizes from apartments over looking the sea and town houses through to large rural properties. With house prices affordable and the cost of living below the national average you (and your family) will see the benefit of living in the area.
If you have a young family the area offers a number of schools and acadamies that provide a high quality of education at both Primary and Secondary levels. For those with older children, the area offers further / higher education at Franklin College and The Grimsby Institute (University Centre Grimsby).
There is a mix of modern shopping centres and historic streets with independent shops. We have a number of leisure facilities including
Pleasure Island theme park, a multiscreen cinema offering movies and live comedy shows, the Grimsby Auditorium offering music and theatre shows, 10 pin bowling and the Fishing Heritage Centre which provides a fascinating insight into Grimsby’s heritage. Cleethorpes also offers the best Fish & Chips you will find in the UK……probably!
The area offers Leisure Centre facilities at a number of venues. Whether it be a family swim, an ice skating lesson, or a session in the gym, you will find everything you need here.
For those wanting a different sort of entertainment, drive for 40 minutes or you will be able to reach Cadwell Park and the Market Rasen Racecourse. We also enjoy close links with nearby cities of Hull and Lincoln, allowing for easy access to everything a city can offer.
