The Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre?! I’m not even joking, that is one of the place I most want to visit. I found their brochure in a rest stop on the way to Leeds a few years ago, and it was one of the inspirations in starting my blog, because I was so intrigued by a place that thought “authentic smells (of fish, presumably), changes in temperature” and the opportunity to “experience sea-sickness” were going to reel those tourists in (pun intended). I still haven’t made it there, possibly partially because I don’t want to be disillusioned by the reality, but that mannequin is re-selling me on it.
I can’t recommend the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre enough, but I suppose I should admit that I do have a vested interest in it; being from Grimsby! There’s not much else to see in Grimsby, which is part of the reason I do so much travelling, but Cleethorpes and the seaside are only a short distance away, so don’t forget to bring your bucket and spade when you visit! 🙂
