Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway

Lakeside Station, Kings Road, Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, DN35 0AG

Join us at the Number One Tourist Attraction in North East Lincolnshire as rated by visitors on Trip Advisor.

The Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway is one of Britain’s oldest seaside miniature railways, and has been delighting young and old for generations.

Not only does the two mile return journey offer a relaxing way to enjoy beautiful views along the Lincolnshire Coast, but our line also doubles as a transport link connecting Cleethorpes Promenade with our main station Lakeside (near Cleethorpes Premier Inn).

Sit back with a pint at the smallest pub on the planet The Signal Box Inn, visit Sidings Snack Shack for delicious food and ice cream and grab a memento from our station gift shops. Tee off on the 9 hole Crazy Golf Course and learn our history in the Story of Cleethorpes Miniature Railway exhibition.
