Situated on the coast of England in Lincolnshire, with a population of 87,000, Grimsby is central to the UK commercial trade as the largest port (by tonnage) in the country. Even as early as the 9th century, locals (who, at the time, were technically Danes) were using Grimsby as a port and fishing village.
The town is also promoted as Europe's Food Town because of its high concentration of food-related companies. One major employer is Young's, whose headquarters are based in Grimsby. Other major industries include renewable energy and digital media.
The town offers a wide selection of restaurants, and residents say much of the city's attractions are within walking distance of each other. Local involvement in sport is high in Grimsby. Whether you're looking to play ice hockey, rugby, cricket, tennis, or even table tennis, Grimsby has the facility for you.
