Call in at the Signal Box Inn, perhaps the smallest pub in the world, at Lakeside station to sample the special beers.

And on 27 June (bright and early, at 6 in the morning) the Olympic flame will abseil down the Dock Tower in Grimsby.

Grimsby Dock Tower was completed in 1852, and is modelled on the tower in Siena.
