Covid-19 Safety

We are delighted to have reopened for visitors and get back to what we do best. However this must be done with the safety and well-being of all our staff and visitors as our priority.

With this in mind, we have implemented additional hygiene and safety measures in accordance with government guidelines. We will be updating these measures frequently in response to evolving Government guidelines, so do keep checking back here for the latest details.

Since these measures are new, we want you to be aware of all these changes prior to your visit.

Operational Changes

Railway: Only operating between Lakeside & Cleethorpes Kingsway Stations for the 2020 season. This is due to a road level crossing upgrade taking place. You do not have to book for the train, but seats are on a first come, first serve basis.

Platform One Café: grab and go service only with a limited menu to reduce contact time and facilitate social distancing. No indoor seating and only disposable cutlery and trays used.

Signal Box Inn: No indoor seating and only disposable poly-carbonate glasses used. You do not have to book a table in the beer garden, but seats are on a first come, first serve basis.
