Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We took our two nephews to this place and it was fantastic. Train ride very enjoyable. Staff lovely and friendly. Nice cafe. Well worth a visit. The kids will love it. My nephews were 2 and 5yrs. Older children will also enjoy.

The railway was lovely, the publicity and sales arrangements left much to be desired. It was hard to find out if the railway was running and what the times were.

Very popular with children and pensioners who are no longer a le to walk the distance !! It's a little steam train and journey can be either one way or return - handy for the very young, the less mobile and the very old !!! Well worth a visit.

This light railway is an absolute delight! The coastal route provides wonderful views of the clean, wide sands and the sea on one side and on the other you can view the paddling pool and the boating lake, which is also frequented by fishermen, and in addition highly colourful gardens. The atmosphere is superb and the Smallest Pub on the Planet , the Signal Box, is a great stopping point for refreshments. The staff on the platforms, the trains and in the ticket office and shop plus the refreshment locations, the Brief Encounters cafe and the Signal Box are most helpful in making sure your experience is a good one. The museum holds several items of great interest to steam enthusiasts. This attraction is great for all age groups and is affordable.

a wonderful ride on small train through the very colourful gardens of Cleethorpes and along the seafront. this also joins up to the land train so you can have a longer sea front ride if you wish or get off the train and walk along the promenade the rest of the way. the line has been extended so now goes to a new station at the south end.
