Uncover the history of the World’s Premier Fishing Port

At Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre you will experience the twentieth century saga by signing on as a crew member and travelling in their footsteps – leaving your 1950’s Grimsby home for a trip to the perilous Arctic fishing grounds and returning home to the comfort of the Freeman’s Arms public house. The sights, sounds, smells and drama will leave you with a whole new respect for the men who, for centuries, have pitted their strength against the elements to bring home their catch.

What's included?

Now berthed alongside the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in Alexandra Dock, you will learn the ropes from the passionate trawler guides, most of whom are ex-trawlermen. They will entertain you with a tale or two of sea life and also take you on a journey of discovery where you will find out what life was like aboard. This is an experience not to be missed, aboard a very special survivor of the maritime past of Great Grimsby.
