Characterised by rolling hills, woodlands, chalk streams and small villages, the area is ideal for exploring by foot, bike or car. There are many walking and cycling routes, from easy to challenging. While you're there, visit the steam Lincolnshire Wolds Railway and 13th-century Bolingbroke Castle.
Don't miss the area's many aviation attractions. An hour's drive away, the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre explores life in the RAF during World War II and is built on the site of an airbase for Bomber Command. Further afield, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre has exhibitions tracing RAF Cranwell’s past and an interactive flight simulator for visitors to try their hand landing a Jet Provost.
Don't Go Home Without
Step back in time with a trip to Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre. Suitable for kids of all ages, the museum explores the lives of trawlermen in the 1950s. You can put on an apprentice boy costume and try your hand as a crew member at interactive displays. There are tours of the Ross Tiger trawler and touch-screen displays throughout the museum. Tuck into fish and chips at the dockside shop.
Bringing your family? Kids can clamber round Time 4 Play, a huge three-level soft play area, zoom on indoor go-karts at Karting World, and ice-skate at Grimsby Leisure Centre, all near the hotel. Pleasure Island Family Theme Park's rides, animal encounters at The Jungle Zoo, and The Magical Castle soft-play complex are less than 15 minutes' drive away in Cleethorpes.
