Cleethorpes Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Lincolnshire...

This was a tiny fishing village famous for its oysters until its vast, gently-shelving beaches stretching for three miles began to attract fun-seeking tourists during the early days of coastal holidaymaking in the mid-19th century.

Today it is one of the north’s favourite East Coast resorts with some some fine houses, a huge pier and views of the Humber and Spurn Head.

Cleethorpes is one of few coastal places located on the Greenwich Meridian, indicated by a marker in the sea wall.
