Leisure & Culture

The coast and countryside is your playground

As a largely rural area, many of the activities available are sports and outdoor leisure. There is so much for you to try, whatever your skill level from water sports such as paddle boarding and kite surfing, to more leisurely activities such as walking or cycling. And, with very little commuting, you will have time to enjoy them.

Culture

Discovery Centre Cleethorpes

North East Lincolnshire is packed full of cultural activities, a large part of which is Grimsby’s maritime heritage in the fishing industry (at its peak in the 1950s, Grimsby laid claim to the title of the largest fishing port in the world!)

Our towns and villages hold regular festivals and events, which attract visitors from not only around the UK but around the world; such as the Armed Forces weekend, Jazz weekend, and other seaside events.

Just a 45-minute drive north is Hull, the City of Culture 2017. Off the back of winning this prestigious title, the city of Hull is expanding what is already a vibrant and exciting city with incredible projects, such as the Hull Lagoon, which will propel Hull into an epicentre of leisure.  

 

Sport & Leisure

Kite surferOur unique blend of coast and countryside which is accessible to all lends itself to a wide range of activities in the great outdoors, and our picturesque landscape only enhances the experience.

With such a long coastline, water sports are a big deal that is continuously growing in North East Lincolnshire, including surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, canoeing, jet-skiing, water-skiing, and yachting. There are three Yacht Clubs and a variety of water sports clubs providing lessons on the sea, reservoirs, and lakes backed up by a welcoming community.

Though North East Lincolnshire is more than just the coastline, there are miles and miles of countryside just inland in the Lincolnshire Wolds, much of it designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty which makes it ideal for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and for the more adventurous amongst us, a quad bike safari!
