In the late 19th and early 20th century, Grimsby was known as the greatest fishing port in the world. Today, much of the town’s architecture is still there to prove it. With a variety of green spaces to enjoy and easy access to the golden sands of Cleethorpes Beach, the town could be the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts to settle down.
Property prices here are below the national average, but there are plenty of thriving neighbourhoods that offer families a quiet and happy retreat from the bustle of the town centre. In close proximity to larger cities like Hull and Sheffield, it’s also an enviable place for commuters.
