My 2 days in Grimsby

After few hours of stay at Bergen(Norway) I have been asked to move to Tetney(UK) to join ship and when I reached Humberside airport I have been told that I have to wait for 2 days here in Grimsby for arrival of ship,so again hotel stay.
I stayed at St.Thome Hotel its in almost city center and after staying here I think its best place because of its proximity to Bus-stop and Railway stop and city center.I will talk about this hotel in its review section.Staying alone was lil difficult then on other day in same hotel one Indian guy was staying we met for breakfast I got company he is about to join some ship here in Tetney.
I came to Grimsby in the evening and again kept my baggage in hotel and moved around city,and planned my activity for next day morning.Went to local market which is just nxt of this hotel and shopping center and then Bus-stop and then I saw Grimsby Fishing Heritage center,didnt go inside it I kept that for nxt day early morning.Opposite of this hotel there is St.Thomas Cathedral standing tall,I have put picture of Cathedral for my introduction page of Grimsby and apart from worship, this placed is used for music concert.Which was really strange for me,that was in evening on other day and allowed to attend by invitation only which I didnt had but they allowed me and my friend to go inside just before starting of concert.
So at the end I enjoyed my stay at Grimsby,loved it only disadvantage is other tourist attraction are lil far from here,Buses are really cheap but I didnt had that much leisure time with me.Hopefully in future I get some more time as tourist.

    Grimsby is such an unvisited town and this proves what I have always said that this is a town worth visiting.Well done.

    You certainly know how to make the best of your time between ships and tell a moving story about the old fishing days of Grimsby. I'll have to finish my tour of the museum another time.

    Hi
    Thanks for the 'virtual tour' of Grimsby, which would seem like the most unlikely of tourist destinations! Clearly there's more to it than I had suspected!
    Regards
