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

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

Lovely station with gift shop; Couple of stops en route where you can get off. Journey there and back takes about 40 minutes. Train trip is well worth it and it makes... More

Nice train journey but the smell of the sewage works next door spoils everything. Unable to finish a drink in this atmosphere.

A brilliant hour or so, we took our grandchild on the railway, the return journey takes around 45 mins, but if you get off at the midway station, it has a lovely quaint museum here, plus a mini signal box, which is actually a little pub. We spent a little time here sampling one of their 3 guest beers. A... More
