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.

I booked myself and grandchildren, aged 9 and 6, onto the Santa Special and had a really enjoyable experience. Other than going on a little train ride we had no idea what to expect and were very surprised and delighted at the outcome. Firstly, when we had all gathered in the ticket office, a very friendly Elf got us all... More

A lovely 15" railway with nice scenery and a welcoming atmosphere. There are many developments and changes happening currently which makes for exciting times and hopefully making the already lovely experience better!!

Whilst this miniature railway has bags of charm, it also has alarmingly high prices. I almost fainted when I asked at the ticket office how much a partial ride from North Sea Lane to the halfway point costs. I appreciate it has to make money and some time ago it's owners had to sell up since they couldn't afford to... More

Lovely way to see Cleethorpes and obviously a lot of time spent keeping this railway running by volunteers.

Although we live in the area we always make a visit to the Station when our Grandsons are visiting. It very quaint and the members of staff are real enthusiasts which is nice to see. There is somewhere you can get a cuppa, and of course a pint at 'the smallest pub on the planet!'. The area is so lucky... More
