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.

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.

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.

This railway is a lovely little method of transport but the station and museum, along with the Signalman's arms (The smallest pub on the planet) is an absolute delight. Manned right up until the end of the season (and often beyond) it is highly recommended

Running from Paradise Island to the Promenade near the leisure centre (with a stop in the middle where they have a little bar) this train is the perfect way to relax and rest your legs. Punctual service (there's a timetable) and reasonable prices this little treasure shouldn't be missed.
