Should Grimsby have been listed as one of Britain's 'coolest places' to live?
GRIMSBY may have been snubbed in a national newspaper’s list of cool places, but we think it’s pretty alright actually!
The Sunday Times failed to mention the area in a list of the 30 coolest places. Although we will give them credit for highlighting Louth, we think they’ve made a serious mistake.
So here’s a list of our favourite places in North East Lincolnshire... feel free to add suggestions by posting a comment below.
People’s Park: It’s the jewel in Grimsby’s crown, and there’s nothing quite like spending time among the lush greenery. It was announced that a local group is taking over the Floral Hall and cafe too, so it’s on the up.

The Weelsby Woods lions: It’s a rite of passage for children – and adults! – to sit astride the lions at the entrance to Weelsby Woods. If you haven’t done it yet, why not?!
Ross Castle: A folly created when the railway came to town, this faux castle is certainly not towering, but enough to give superb views of the Humber estuary and beyond on a clear day. We’re including Cleethorpes seafront in this bullet point too.
The Dock Tower: No list would be complete without mentioning the iconic landmark which looms over Freeman Street and the docks. It remains just as impressive today as when it was built.
Humberston Fitties: Stepping onto the Fitties is like taking a trip back in time to a quaint little world. You really can forget the stresses and strains of life with a gentle walk through this picturesque area.
Grimsby Minster: Grimsby’s parish church is pretty awe-inspiring. Not only is it a beautiful place of worship, it is at the very heart of the community. It hosts all sorts of activities and concerts, so it’s well worth dropping by when you’re near.
Seaview Street: A world away from commercial shopping, Seaview Street offers a plethora of indie shops to whet your consumer appetite.
Duke of York Gardens parkour facility: It’s only been open a few weeks, but the specially-built parkour facility at the gardens in the centre of Grimsby is proving to be a success. Watch as they flip and fly... and perhaps you’ll be tempted to try it yourself!
Immingham Skate Park: From parkour to skating, the park in Immingham was first mooted in 2009, so it’s great that it’s finally become a reality.
