North East Lincolnshire is small but mighty.
Over 160,000 people live in a county of 192 square kilometres. Don’t let that put you off – there’s still plenty to attract people to the area.
House prices are low. There are countless opportunities across many different sectors. We have some of the best schools in the north of the country. And there’s plenty to explore during your weekends too.
We’re full of employment opportunities across dozens of sectors.
It’s not just healthcare where we provide high quality services – the area is also well-known for excelling when it comes to renewables, ports and logistics, seafood, retail, new media and plenty more.
The seafood industry in North East Lincolnshire alone is worth £2.5billion, with companies like Young’s Seafood operating from Grimsby.
Elsewhere, 60 million tonnes of cargo passes through Grimsby and Immingham ports annually, and 400 new wind turbines are planned for the North Sea.
The roads aren’t as busy as major UK cities either – leaving you with the bonus of minimal or no commute. Plus, motorway links take you to the M1 artery of the UK – anywhere is accessible.
Altogether, it’s the recipe for the perfect work-life balance.
There are a wide range of options when it comes to choosing where to live – and you’ll find that, on average, house prices are much lower than in the rest of the UK.
There’s the relative hustle and bustle of Grimsby – a town crammed with history and known for its fishing heritage in years gone by.
Close by is Cleethorpes, which is home to one of the finest beaches on the east coast of England.
Just up the road, Immingham has the UK’s largest port and has been undergoing something of a resurgence in recent years.
If you’re looking for something more tranquil, quaint villages like Waltham and Laceby are within a ten-minute commute to Grimsby and offer beautiful homes in peaceful locations.
When you’re outside of work, you’re guaranteed to never get bored in North East Lincolnshire.
If it’s shopping you’re after, Grimsby’s Freshney Place is home to top brands like Marks & Spencer. Abbeygate and Cleethorpes’ Seaview Street offer boutique shopping experiences.
Those who love the great outdoors will find lots of green space. Cleethorpes Country Park and Bradley Woods are top locations for joggers and dog walkers, with the breathtaking Lincolnshire Wolds also close by.
If the English rain arrives, don’t worry – we still have a selection of leisure centres, gyms, restaurants and cinemas to keep you busy.
Relocating can be stressful in itself without having to think about getting your children into a good school.

Ten of our primary schools have been rated ‘Good’ by OFSTED, with St Martin’s Preparatory School named as the Sunday Times’ Best Primary for 2020. Three of our secondary schools have achieved ‘Outstanding’ status.
