Eat, Drink and Party
Grimsby and Cleethorpes boast a lively mix of pubs and bars serving a variety of food and drink. (Real ale enthusiasts should be sure to check out Willy's Wine Bar in Cleethorpes, it brews its own beer.) For those that prefer all their venues under one roof, head for Grimsby's Riverhead Development where you can literally drop in for a snack at lunchtime and party until late.
Grimsby never stops with fantastic clubbing offering everything from RnB to Indie. There's plenty of live music, too, with weekly events at all the local nightspots. Cleethorpes is famous for its touring tribute bands or just for chilling out at the annual jazz festival.
The Grimsby Auditorium attracts top names like Kasabian, the Sugababes, KT Tunstall and the Saturdays, and stage shows with everything from ballet to opera, rock and pop, comedy and classics such as Erasure, Jimmy Carr, Dave Spikey and Starlight Express and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
For film fans, there's the nine-screen multiplex cinema in Cleethorpes. Grimsby also has its own Caxton Theatre, the place for amateur dramatics. Plus you'll find art and dance festivals, continental singers, art and craft exhibitions, carnival parades, classic car rallies, car shows and so much more.
When it comes to getting around, the area benefits from efficient public transport. You can be in London in under four hours by train and Humberside Airport is just a few minutes drive away. Thanks to the famous Humber Bridge you can be in Hull in less than an hour.
