Cleethorpes has good infrastructure connections to the rest of the country.
It lies on the far end of the rail network, but is only just over an hour from Doncaster on the main East coast line. A train journey from London (changing at Doncaster) would take about three and a half hours.
Lincoln is also about a hour and a half away, although a change at Grimsby is often required.
Don't expect an impressive station at Cleethorpes - most of it is now a pub.
Road connectionas are also good with the M180 coming to within a few miles of the place - and this connects through to the A1(M) and M62.

None of it gets landed at neighbouring Grimsby anymore. It all comes by road from Peterhead, Lowestoft or Aberdeen.
Unique Suggestions: And they wee on it,
Fun Alternatives: Eat frozen peas without defrosting them.

Luggage and bags: Bring your own power supply as Cleethorpes is in the North of England and elecrticity is a new-fangled instrument of the devil.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring clothing
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring anthrax vaccine and foot powder.
Photo Equipment: Cameras will be stolen by the natives
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring thick wooly jumpers for sun bathing.

GTFC play their home games at Blundell Park which is actually in Cleethorpes, just a short drive from Grimsby.
My previous visit was around 15 years ago and in February, it was freezing! this latest visit in August 2008 for the first game of the 2008/9 season against Rochdale - weather wet and cold this time.
Anyway little had changed in Blundell Park over the years, a few more seats now and much more expensive to get in. I believe a new stadium is in the pipeline.
The game? it finished a 0-0 draw, though quite entertaining, and I had the correct score at the bookies down the road.
