Rain + Cleethorpes = Fun!

You may doubt us, but the weather really doesn’t have to put a damper on your day or your choice of activities to do during the day for that matter!

Whether you’re visiting Cleethorpes or you’re a local, rain has always been an issue with halting plans and having to rearrange activities, unfortunately, the weather cannot be controlled, although on the plus side, you can arrange your plans around the weather, and here a few things to do when it’s raining:

1. Visit the arcades

The Mint Arcade is not only a great retreat for when the weather is a bit damp, it’s a great way to rid of all of those pennies and even re-live you childhood of wasting the day away on the machines and winning nothing but more pennies.

2. Go to the leisure centre

The logic of getting wet when you don’t want to, versus jumping into a swimming pool – a heated one at that – seems more inviting, don’t you think?
You can stay warm and have a brilliant day out at the leisure centre, where’s there’s a gym and even a squash court too.

3. Watch a film

The Parkway Cinema and Theatre isn’t just a place to watch films, the venue also hosts the regular comedy nights and shows.

4. Discover the Discovery Centre

The Discovery Centre is a great way to get your fill of culture, with some fantastic exhibitions from local artists, and most of the admittance is free!

Rain should never be an excuse to stop your plans for the day, and in Cleethorpes, there are many alternatives!
