Experience the height of the fishing industry of Great Grimsby! A job often described as the 'most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK', these men literally risked their lives in order to bring home fish to a port described as 'the world's premiere fishing port'. Come and see their story!

Spent the afternoon here and really enjoyed it . Everything is set up excellently. Lauren on the desk, Denis the ex Skipper who showed us round the Ross Tiger fishing vessel and the nice blond Lady in the Café made it all for us

Many of my family worked in the fishing industry, from my grandad who was a trawler man to uncles that worked on the docks. The National Fishing Heritage Centre brings back old memories of this hard life. A must see.

Took a 7 and 9 year old for the tour of the Road Tiger and was very impressed. The tour guide was a former skipper and gave a really good tour engaging the kids and adults.
