Cleethorpes essentially became a tourist destination during the Victorian era and with the coming of the railways in 1863 its future was assured.
The facilities for visitors developed from then onward. The Pier and the adjacent cliff gardens came first. The North Promenade with its exciting rides, side shows and beach entertainment all added to the experience of the visitor, often captured in the Edwardian, comic seaside postcard. Later came the Bathing Pool and the Boating Lake with the first touring caravans pitching up on the golf links!
Come and discover the history with our volunteers and our self-guided trail in and around the surrounding area of the church.
