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.

Rode from the central pier area to the boating lake area. Can easily walk this section but, kids would like the small carriages. Boating lake area well worth a visit. Much nicer and cleaner than the pier area with the usual arcades and rides. Consists of a wading pool open in the summer months, large park and boating lake where you can hire a pedalo. Try the food at the cafe on site at the boating lake, it is very nice. Nice big pool at the leisure centre at this location too.

“A Little Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Not cheap, but as it is privately owned and well maintained it's worth the price. It runs from Pleasure Island theme park down to the more central areas of Cleethorpes. Special trains at Halloween and Christmas. It's worth looking around the Stations and having a drink at the small but perfectly formed Signal Box Inn.

“great for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

our 4 year old loved going on it. It was good seeing the scenery from the train. We paid for the full track we went from the leisure center station then got off at where the cafe is then got on and did the rest of it.
