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.

Once again we took our grandkids on the CCLR, they still love it, as always young staff members are very helpful and cheerful at all time. Lakeside station to cleethorpes for a family is £14....not cheap but well worth it.

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)
