Markets Markets are a regular and prominent feature in Brigg, with one being held every Thursday and Saturday. They are traditional in nature but play host to a wide variety of goods such as fruit and vegetables, fresh flowers, meat and fish, cheeses, clothing and much more. To be found on the main pedestrianised streets of the town centre, they are the life of the town. Since 2000, Brigg has also played host to a monthly farmer’s market, where you may find produce not available at the weekly market – like ostrich! Do keep an eye out for Brigg’s ‘special’ markets – a Summer Market in June and a Christmas one in December attract much attention and are well worth a visit. Pubs England is known for its gorgeous, traditional pubs and Brigg is no exception. Whether it’s a beer garden in June or a log-burning fire in December, Brigg has got it all. The Yarborough Hunt is an award-winning example with its ‘Pub of the Season’ Award by CAMRA in 2014. Once an old house, it was converted in 2003 whilst maintaining its original features, which makes for an attractive social setting. Recently it has acquired a new ‘reading’ room – a snug-like retreat for the end of a busy day. Also deserving of a mention is The Jolly Miller, known as Jollies, is a short 1 mile drive away, in the charming village of Wrawby. After two extensive renovations it now boasts features such as a separate restaurant and bar, its own pool room and outdoor play area for the children. Tea Rooms If there’s anything Brigg has no shortage of, it has to be tea rooms. In the heart of the town there is Cafe Courtyard, perfectly situated a quick bite. For a quirkier experience, be sure to check out Shipley’s Curiositeas, also in the heart of Brigg, makes for a wonderful ‘Alice in Wonderland-esque’ experience. For the gluten-avoiding amongst you, The Steel Rooms on Spring’s Parade offers plenty of wonderful home-baked goods suitable for you. Out of town, Clayton’s Corner or Mount Tea Rooms are both wonderful opportunities to recharge whilst out for the day, with one being on the edge of the Wolds and the other set in a picturesque Georgian family home. Sports For the active amongst you, not only is there spectacular golf and fishing in the area, but also skydiving, Airsoft and gliding! Skydiving at the Hibaldstow airfield, a former RAF warfield is a bucket-list kind of experience. Especially as at Hibaldstow you can jump from up to 15,000ft – the highest in the country. Just as adrenaline-junkie suited is the Gliding Club at Trent Valley. If you fancy flying a plane rather than jumping out of one, that is. The club is perfect for enjoying your first flight if you’re a newbie. They also offer group experiences so you can take your friends and family along. In Kirton in Lindsey there is a great day out waiting for you at the Airsoft Club. For adults and families alike (from 10 years upwards), everyone can enjoy the adventure of the paintball-like activity without the paint! The best idea is to organise a big family outing and split everyone into teams. Historic market town of Brigg
