The line...'I’ve never visited before, even when I lived across the water in Hull, and find myself wandering open-mouthed....'   could be construed either way.

Intetesting article though.  Love going back in autumn.... the coast is best when wrapped up warm with the promise of a decent ale after a bracing walk

Are we even a seaside resort? I’ve always thought of us as a riverside resort.

I’ve never thought our beach is appealing. Looks shockingly muddy when the tide goes out, and the only real nice sandy bits are let’s face it, just a slither.

Travel South towards Mablethorpe, and then yes you get to some amazing wide, golden sandy beaches. Quality beaches down there, and some fab nature conservation areas too that surround the beaches.

I don't think your post will make you popular with the local tourist board, our hospitality business's nor local trades people. It's nice to have an article in the national press hyping up the area instead of knocking it to pieces. I did like the description of Papa's as the world's largest fish and chip shop.



You can please some of the forumites some of the time but not all the forumites all of the time

Wow, what a brilliantly-written article, well done Phoebe. It makes me want to go myself..... and I live here!

As I have said many times to people, I can think of a lot worse places to live than Cleethorpes and I'm not originally from here.

We've had some fantastic holidays away over the years but it's always great to come back to Cleethorpes.  



I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

That's a brilliant article.  

Upon reading the headline I was expecting the rest of it to be a bit of a cliché filled kicking of our town.   Well written and definitely highlights some of what Cleethorpes and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Like everywhere, there's good and bad in this area.  I just happen to think our good is bloody brilliant!

The Guardian loves us. Every other year there’s similar article. After one a few years ago it half expected to see trainloads of “It’s Grim up North London” types pouring out of the station.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Mablethorpe is a shithole. The beach at Cleethorpes towards Humberston is wide and would rival Mablethorpe if you didn't have to wade through a mile of mud to get to the water be that river or sea. As for the actual resorts, there is no comparison. Cleethorpes is trying, quite successfully IMHO, to refine itself, less Blackpool more Brighton. Mablethorpe is like Blackpools runty little brother but with a nice beach.


And when you fall back into the mud it hurts a lot.
No! None of it was true, none of those things we thought we could see existed at all.
All that was really there was still more misery
