Love Exploring

Love exploring North East Lincolnshire

For some fun family-time, discover the Love Exploring App and explore North East Lincolnshire through interactive games, trails and more.

The FREE app contains interactive games and trails suitable for all ages. Download to your smartphone and discover free family fun.

Play an augmented reality game

Created to encourage families, young and old, to get out and about and visit some of our lovely parks and open spaces, these virtual trails and games have been developed for use with a smart phone. Go on a Dinosaur Safari, step out on a Space Walk and discover the Tree Fairies. In the summer you can hunt the mega mini beasts. In the autumn we enjoy playing the Halloween Dance Trail and through the winter months, you can hunt for Winter Woodland Fairies. With various locations to play the games, it’s ideal for getting some fresh air and stretching the limbs whilst you explore the parks and gardens in North East Lincolnshire.

Discover Heritage Trails

For those who love local history, discover three fantastic heritage trails on the App. Wander around Cleethorpes Town Centre and Grimsby Town Centre and learn fascinating history and see old photographs of buildings as they once used to look. In Immingham, walk the Pilgrims Trail and learn about the town’s link to the Mayflower Pilgrims.
