Looking back over the previous reviews i think maybe we have missed something. The staff were very friendly, the Lakeside station was impressive with the trains parked up, that old railway station feel, ticket office etc..
We went in and checked the timetable, we chose the kingsway line as it had listed the beach, promenade etc... We were on the train for about five minutes and we pulled into a 'stop', where you could see the beach but little else there to get off for. Everyone on the train seemed to be asking the same thing 'Is this the stop?' The inspector then stamped our return tickets and it was away back to the station.
Our 16 month old son loved it as he loved seeing the train, and wandering around the station / museum. From an adult point of view maybe we should have taken the full trip to the other station because it was over quickly and after travelling to Cleethorpes for this there was alot of travelling to get back.
