Life in North East Lincs |

Small but perfectly formed

Non-natives might find it a little challenging to mark the exact spot that is North East Lincs. It is, after all, a small corner of a very large county. However, with an ice-cream-ready seaside resort set against the backdrop of the breath-taking Lincolnshire Wolds, North East Lincolnshire is not only perfect for a British staycation, but also offers great career opportunities too.

Perhaps you remember bucket and spade visits to Cleethorpes from years back? If you haven’t been for a while, you’ll be surprised at the changes. Cleethorpes is proud to be bang up to date with clean beaches, mouth-watering pubs and restaurants and exciting visitor attractions. But it hasn’t lost any of its traditional appeal, either.

Seafood and Sequins

These days, Cleethorpes pier is dominated by the award winning fish and chips restaurant, Papas. With fantastic views and sustainable, local produce, it’s definitely worth researching the claim that fish and chips taste best by the sea.

Interested in a cosy countryside pub? You could do worse than the Ship Inn at Barnoldby le Beck. Under new management, the menu has been overhauled, but walkers, dogs and hungry visitors are still very welcome.  

Lovers of the great outdoors won’t be disappointed in the region. North East Lincs countryside is known for its wide open spaces, woodland and coastal paths. And they’re all just waiting to be explored by foot, by bicycle or even on horseback.  

If you’re looking for something a little more extreme, join the many adrenaline junkies who use Cleethorpes’ designated kite surfing beach. Take your kite or a buggy to catch the inshore winds, or join up with East Coast Kiteboarding who can teach you the basics or develop your existing skills.

Yearning for a little glamour in your life? Cliftons Dance Academy began over 30 years ago in Grimsby. It was founded by the British Latin American champions Keith and Judy Clifton. Since then the talented pair became parents to Joanne and Kevin who followed in their dance-shoe footsteps to great success, each of them taking turns to win the prestigious BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Not just for holidays

North East Lincs is a great place to live and work. The open roads make for stress-free commuting, whereas reasonable property prices and great schools mean that families are well catered for.

Business-wise, there’s also lots going on. Immingham, on the south bank of the Humber, is famous for its logistics expertise, but not many people know that there has been activity there since 0002 AD. Back then, it was rich pasture and grazing lands, quite different from today’s feature – the deepest deep water dock in Europe.

The region is also at the cutting edge of green technology, with more than 300 people employed by Ørsted, a renewable energy market leader located in Grimsby.
