About National Fishing Heritage Centre

National Fishing Heritage Centre provides a fascinating insight into Grimsby's maritime history, so why not sign up as a crewmember and find out why fishing has often been described as one of the toughest jobs in the world!

Discover what life was like for trawler men (and their families), as you and the kids navigate your way around the heritage centre, complete with sounds and smells! The kids will love the interactive displays, with a chance to dress up as a fisherman or apprentice. You can also visit the dockside shop and get some fish and chips, and join the fisherman in the Freeman's Arms, before experiencing a moving deck.

Speaking of decks, The Ross Tiger (an ex working trawler from the 1950s), is moored adjacent to the museum and you can climb aboard and be entertained by tales of days at sea from the Trawler guides. (Fun fact, North East Lincolnshire Council bought this trawler for a whopping £1!) Tours are available throughout the year and last about 45 minutes, although they are subject to weather conditions. Tickets can be obtained from the signing on desk.

Please be aware that children under 5 are not permitted to go aboard the Ross Tiger Trawler due to Health and Safety guidelines. Also, access may be difficult for those with mobility problems due to vertical ladders and high sills on board.
