The Kasbah sits on Grimsby’s historic dock peninsula, and is comprised of around 90 buildings of all shapes and sizes, many of which are currently waiting to be chosen by a new tenant who will bring them back to life.
In the meantime, existing tenants carry on their work and welcome visitors and clients as part of their daily business. The security gate at the entrance to the dock estate (requiring photo id), and mobile security patrolling 24 hours a day, give them reassurance that safety measures are in place, and help protect visitors from accident or injury.
Until the transition has been made to relatively full occupancy, public access will remain somewhat limited due to health and safety concerns.
That said, we put on a very successful Heritage Open Day in September 2019, which brought many visitors to the port, who enjoyed guided walks, a smokehouse tour, net braiding workshops, and other delights including delicious food produced on site.
