Tourism is a growth industry, which contributes £167m to the North Lincolnshire economy. Over 4,000 people are employed locally in the industry. In 2014 there were 3.1m day visits to North Lincolnshire attractions.
There are currently 1,266 serviced bed spaces and over 40 visitor attractions.
North Lincolnshire enjoys a drier, sunnier climate than much of the UK due to its sheltered position in the East of England, making it ideal for enjoying outdoor activities and events.
North Lincolnshire visitor profile and local trends in tourism
Day visits are the main income for tourism sector businesses. The area’s geographic position - within an hour’s drive of major centres of population such as Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield and Hull - makes it an easily accessible and attractive proposition.
The majority of visitors to our market towns are from within the UK. Of those asked, 77 per cent said they were on a leisure trip, 12 per cent visiting friends and relatives and 11 per cent on special shopping trips. Of those who are visiting market towns, 44 per cent of visitors said they would be happy to return to the town and likely to make a repeat visit.
