Hotels in Scunthorpe
Set in an industrial town in the north of England, Scunthorpe Hotels are a great choice for exploring north Lincolnshire's rich Victorian heritage and attractive surrounding countryside.
The area around Scunthorpe has been a mining location from as early as the Roman period. It was with the discovery of iron ore in 1859 that the town really began to grow, and Scunthorpe subsequently became an important industrial centre during the Victorian period. One of the best places to learn about the area's rich industrial heritage is the North Lincolnshire Museum. Here you'll find a range of informative exhibitions detailing north Lincolnshire's history as far back as the Bronze Age. During the summer there are also Steelworks train tours organised by the Appleby-Frodingham Railway Preservation Society.
Close to Scunthorpe is Normanby Hall, a 300-acre estate and Regency mansion dating from 1825. An excellent location for both family rambles through the woods or romantic strolls beside the mansion, Normanby Hall is one of the area's most popular destinations. Visiting the mansion itself is a fantastic way to learn about Regency history and the grounds are an ideal destination for picnics.
