Councillor Rob Waltham, cabinet member for Business, Innovation, Employment and Skills, said: “We first started the North Lincolnshire Teapot Trail in 2014 and it is becoming more and more popular each year. I can understand why, as we have some fantastic tearooms across North Lincolnshire, including some hidden gems. The Teapot Trail gives those tearooms that are less well-known the chance to stand out and showcase what they have to offer.

“The Teapot Trail is great fun, and it is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your family and friends whilst you try a delicious selection of cakes, snacks, teas and coffees, plus much more!
