Cleethorpes Pier

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "The Pier over the years"

Quote:
Cleethorpes Pier is the town’s famous landmark. The pier was officially opened in August of 1873 and the construction originally cost £8000 which converted into today’s currency, would have been quite a lot of money back then. Over the years, the pier has changed slightly in structure and size. The pavilion of the pier was destroyed in a fire in the early 1900s and part of the pier was cut out during the war. However, there have also been many improvements to the pier due to damages caused. Although the pier is now used as a nightclub, that has not always been the case. In the late 1960s, the pier was home to a whole range of summer shows which included wrestling and dance festivals. Howev...Read More

Story/Tip

Quote:
Cleethorpes is the neighbouring town to my home town of Grimsby. Due to them being so close, many people class them as the same place. The town has a population of just over 30,000 and it is twinned with the town of Königswinter in Germany. A popular term used to describe going to Cleethorpes by locals is calling it 'Meggies'. I have no idea what people call it this and I doubt I will ever find out. Cleethorpes is actually a seaside town and from Grimsby, it takes about 30 minutes on a bus to get there or about 10 if you take the train. All of the buses, and the train, go pretty much straight to the beach or a 2 minute walk away from it. The beach itself runs for miles and it can take you ...Read More
