Living in Grimsby

Fantastic food scene

There is relatively few chain restaurants, which has allowed independent food to thrive. Favourites like Tale of Two, Agrah and Abby's offer a range of different cuisines at a very high level, but it’s fish and chips is where it really stands out. With many years of experience cooking and catching fish, it’s no surprise you can find some of the best in the country here. Expect huge portions of super-fresh fish and thick chips. What’s more, some of the fish and chip shops are in outstanding locations, like Papa’s with views right out to sea on Cleethorpes Pier. So, you’ll have plenty of choice for evenings enjoying fantastic food from your new Persimmon home.

Beaches and countryside

Close is the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and adjoining the town is Cleethorpes, which boasts one of the best beaches in the area. The Wolds contain some of the most unspoilt countryside in the East Midlands, with a great range of scenery and plenty of picturesque villages to discover. There is a huge range of walks and cycling routes, adventure parks and even a steam railway to discover.

Cleethorpes Beach is a sandy beach stretching for miles along the coast. Enjoy sitting in the sun, taking part in watersports or visiting the arcades in this hidden gem of a seaside location. This range of scenery gives you a great choice of beautiful places to get outside and explore within easy reach of your new home.

England’s greenest town

Grimsby is the renewable energy capital of England. No other town produces as much electricity from renewable sources. With a large wind farm off the coast and solar, biomass and landfill gas all producing energy for the town, the town is looking towards the future and leading the way in renewables. Not only is this a point of pride for residents, but it’s also brought thousands of jobs to the region, and as this sector develops, this looks set to grow which is good news if you’re moving to work or develop your career.
