Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway is a fantastic way to see the resort of Cleethorpes. Steam and diesel locomotives on the 15" gauge track take visitors on a two-mile journey along the seafront, stopping at three stations. But the attraction is much more than a railway. It includes a tea room, The Signal Box Inn - reputed to be the world's smallest pub - a gift shop, locomotive sheds and workshops.

The CCLR is the one thing I make a beeline for when in Cleethorpes. I know it is geared up for families, but as a rail enthusiast, I can heartly recommend it. A visit to the Signal Box Inn is also a must, with some top notch real ales and fine ciders. Would have got five stars if the museum... More

Came here while on holiday at Thorpe Park Haven. Walked out the site and along beach and got the train here. Lovely miniature steam train and very friendly staff. Ride was very reasonably priced at £11 return for 2 adults and a child. Nice coastal track with little features on the way to make it authentic. Lots of people waving... More

I have visited this attraction with friends and family many times and so know what to expect but on this occasion, it was on Easter Sunday and my brother was visiting from London and as he has never been before, we thought we would show him the experience! As the weather was pleasant too, we sat on the seats outside... More

Grown up and children alike will love this attraction. The people who run this have an absolute passion for the railway and it shows in there work. From summer time runnings to the ~Christmas special - what a treat. One way or a round trip - value for money.

Not open every day, but an enjoyable ride in good weather. Train travels along the track on the east of the leasure centre.

A fantastic little narrow gauge railway line (15 inch) and runs for two miles from near Cleethorpes Leisure centre up to near the Pleasure Island theme park. The Lakeside station about half way down the line has a small museum and cafe as well as "Smallest Pub in the World". There are some seasonal events held on the line at... More

Our grandson has loved this delightful train from being a baby. His "choo choo" and waving as he goes are very infectious for all on the train and passers by. We love it, as it takes you back to an earlier age and the smell of coal in the air. All the buildings and stations are well painted and cared... More

As a family we took a trip on the Hallowscream express we expected the small person to be happy but as adults we would be bored. What nonsense it was a great night out for old and young alike. Reasonably priced to suit families with first class entertainment included.
