Grimsby Mini Guide

If you want to learn more about Grimsby’s fishing heritage you can visit the Grimsby National Fishing Heritage centre. The impressive Dock Tower is also Grimsby’s main landmark and can be seen from miles around. Be sure to try some local fish and chips when you are in Grimsby. The town also hosts regular talks by historians on the town's past related to fishing and details of these can be found at the local library and town hall.


To get into Grimsby from abroad or another part of the United Kingdom you can fly into Humberside Airport (where it is also possible to pick up a Rhino rental car) and make the short journey to Grimsby by car. Humberside Airport has flights to a number of European destinations including the Dutch capital of Amsterdam and the Scottish city of Aberdeen. An alternative way to go abroad from Grimsby is on the ferry line which calls in on its way from Kingston Upon Hull to Rotterdam in Holland.

To drive to Grimsby you will most likely take the M180 motorway which joins the A180 road and connects Grimsby to the northern English city of Hull and with the Midlands. Another option is the A46 road from Lincoln and Newark.

There are a couple of golf clubs on the outskirts of Grimsby; the Cleethorpes Golf Club to the south of the town centre and Grimsby Golf Club to the west of the town centre. Grimsby has a shopping centre, the Freshney Place shopping centre which covers most retail needs. It has a few decent pubs to visit to but take care if you are planning on going out at night as some areas of Grimsby have a bad reputation.

UPDATE - We no longer have rental cars available directly from Grimsby, our nearest depots are at Humberside Airport and Hull.

Grimsby makes for an interesting short break. It’s home to Britain’s largest port and biggest fishing fleet. Long gone are the heydays of the fishing industry but there’s still a pride in bringing home the catch. Spend a morning at the fish docks watching the catch being unloaded then go to the market to see the fish being auctioned off.

Afterwards drive to the National Fishing Heritage Centre which charts the rise and fall of fishing together with some incredible stories from fishermen. If you’re lucky, you’ll be there on a day when the iconic Dock Tower is open.
