Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, Fish & Chips & Cleethorpes
This morning we step back in time and experience the height of the fishing industry in the 1950s at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre. The interactive exhibitions give a vivid picture of the everyday dangers faced by trawlermen. We board the magnificent Ross Tiger, thought to be the oldest side-winder fishing trawler in the UK, and then hop straight onto a historic miniature railway. Enjoy a return journey along the picturesque Humberside Coast on the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway with a delicious lunch of fish and chips onboard. In the afternoon, we enjoy free time to relax in the Victorian seaside resort of Cleethorpes.
Walking tour of Hull
In the morning we embark on an informal walking tour of Hull's quaint historic quarter. We wander through the cobbled streets and alleyways, flush with Georgian buildings, and rich in the history of Hull's fascinating past. Our knowledgeable guide acquaints us with tales of maritime and famous characters - a real treat! In the afternoon, we enjoy time at leisure to soak up the atmosphere and further explore the vibrant mix of culture and shopping this revitalised waterfront city has to offer. Take a stroll along the marina, an amble through the eclectic museum quarter or visit Wilberforce House Museum, birthplace of the MP and antislavery crusader William Wilberforce.
York & Yorkshire Air Museum
We enjoy free time this morning to explore the beautiful medieval city of York. Wander the stunning Gothic halls
of York Minster, stroll along 'The Shambles' with its timber-framed houses and traditional shopfronts or amble along recreated Victorian Streets at York Castle Museum. In the afternoon we enjoy an entertaining guided tour of the award-winning Yorkshire Air Museum. Experience more than a century of aviation history from the first flying machines, through to the unique Halifax Bomber 'Friday the 13th' and modern jet fighters such as the Nimrod and Tornado.
After breakfast, we make our way home.
