Overview
More
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.

The tooting does drive me a bit mad all day long but it is a lovely little train and railway. I think children love it.

Great little ride. My 2yr old loved it. Views aren't great but that's not really the point. Very fair price and a long or short ride available. Lovely fun. Well worth nipping round the corner for the meridian line too

The light coast miniature railway is fun for all ages. It takes you from Cleethorpes to Thorpe Park holiday site. Probably not so much fun in poor weather. But if you've already walked the 2 miles one way, it's a relaxing way to get back....More

Others beat us too it! There's multiple car parks around the railway and a car park located at every station (Kingsway, Lakeside and Humberston)

There is a large car park next to the station which is free for disabled or about £5 for the day. There is a cafe attached to the light railway and a gift shop. It is a great ride so hope you have a lovely time
