Grimsby is a seaside town on the north-east coast of England, located right at the mouth of the River Humber with a population of a shade under 100,000.
It is most well-known for its fishing industry and is the site of the biggest fish market in the UK.
In terms of family living, it is well set up as there are a wide range of schools to choose from and an award winning shopping centre as well as a choice of supermarkets. The majority of these are to be found in the town centre, so amenities are more than accessible to the residents.
In terms of entertainment, there is a selection of pubs to choose from, but for a more active night out, nearby Cleethorpes is apparently the place to be.
The majority of properties are old fashioned terraced houses and the location and traditional low wages in the area means that they can be snapped up for well under £100,000 usually, ideal for those in the property development trade or the rental market.
As you move further into the centre of town, unusually, houses become more of a semi-detached nature and creep over that £100,000 mark. The south-west of Grimsby is the glamorous district, with properties well over £400,000 for sale, as five-and-six-bedroom detached houses the norm, so if you want your money to go further, this ma be a good place to buy.
