Walking and rambling
Whether it’s a short walk round Bradley Woods, or a longer walk in our stunning countryside, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get your boots on. For the adventurous, the Silver Lincs Way is a 25K staged walk, starting in Grimsby, soon you’ll be rambling through pretty villages and areas of outstanding natural beauty before finishing in the market town of Louth where there’s plenty of stopping off places to refresh or stay the night.
For something a little shorter, why not take a stroll along Cleethorpes Promenade, or along the sea wall? There’s more than 10 official walking routes in our patch. Download your route map from NELincs.gov.uk before you go to plot where to pause and catch your breath.
Cleethorpes Country Park even has a designated swimming lake for your dog! Or why not visit our nature reserves where you can explore unique habitats, flora and fauna.
Two or four wheels…
If you prefer two wheels, there are plenty of popular cycle routes around North East Lincolnshire. From three miles for the beginners to much longer stretches, there’s something for everyone. But if you prefer to watch the action, just a short journey away, you can see stages on events such as the British National Cycling Championships and the Lincoln Grand Prix, or visit Cadwell Park just down the road for some great motorsports action.
