The Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway is one of Britain’s oldest seaside miniature railways.
Established in 1948, the award winning attraction – recently voted No. 1 tourist attraction in North East Lincolnshire by users on Tripadvisor, runs for 2 miles along the Humberside coast.
A full trip features three stations. Cleethorpes Kingsway, adjacent to Cleethorpes Leisure Centre features a gift shop selling souvenirs, snacks and light refreshments.
Lakeside is the hub of the railway, found halfway along the line. It is home to the smallest pub on the planet – The Signal Box Inn. At just 8×8 square feet and seating four people at a time, its offering includes a wide range of guest ales and ciders. The brand new ‘Platform One Café’ has been added for 2015 selling delicious breakfasts, lunches and refreshments. The Griffin Hall Museum tells the fascinating story of the Sutton Miniature Railway and includes on display ‘Mighty Atom’ – one of the oldest 15 inch gauge steam locomotives in the world!
As you travel further along the line, you will reach Humberston Station. Popular with walkers and bird watchers, the station has some outstanding views of the Humber Estuary.
Regular events are held throughout the year, including the Folk & Cider Festival on the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend and new for 2015, the Rail, Ale & Jazz Festival in September. A themed 1940s weekend will be held during August and seasonal events such as Halloween and Santa Specials also take place
