Experience the height of the fishing industry of Great Grimsby! A job often described as the 'most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK', these men literally risked their lives in order to bring home fish to a port described as 'the world's premiere fishing port'. Come and see their story!

Not being from Grimsby I actually found this to be quite an enjoyable experience, some of the exhibits might need a little TLC to bring the place up a little. Even in it's less than pristine presentation it was informative and I found it interesting.

This is a must for fishing history, the guide is a retired fisherman so he is an expert on the history, I found this really interesting and gave me a bit of an insight to how my father lived whilst at work.
