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. « less

...... if not, then perhaps it should be. Cleethorpes enjoys very convenient motorway connections which makes a day trip very possible for many. It offers a very pleasant experience; including a long flat walk with good views, good fish ‘n chips, and its outstanding light railway. The attraction is an excellent example of a small scale train operation. It has... More

Fabulous little steam train. The children loved it. Round trip takes about 40 minutes. You can get on or off in three places. Apparently the middle station has the smallest pub in England... which we missed unfortunately :(

Any children (and adults) with an interest in railways will enjoy the ride from the Leisure Centre to the Fitties. Steam engines are used at popular times - holidays and weekends - and there is a small museum at the main station. Sadly, the shop with model railways at the Leisure Centre station has been run down. Hopping on the... More

On arrival at Cleethorpes we stumbled on this train and decided to have a ride. It is a miniature railway and is pulled by steam trains, of which there are two running. The whole track is only a couple of miles in length but there are 3 stops. At the Lakeside Station there is a nice tearoom and museum which... More

The Cleethorpes Light Railway is a really good attraction, particularly for young children. It is run very efficiently and the attraction has an authentic feel of a real railway from years ago, right down to the attendants uniforms but particularly the steam locomotive pulling the carriages. A bonus for any adults is the strategic position of the station stop halfway... More
