The Railway

The Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway dates from 1948, and has taken various forms to reach what it is today.

Now with a track gauge of 15 inches (381mm), and host to seven steam locomotives and five diesel locomotives, the line carries hundreds of thousands of happy passengers every year.

A full trip on the 2 mile line features three stations:

Cleethorpes Kingsway

Adjacent to Cleethorpes Leisure Centre and the Southern Promenade, this impressive terminus station is home to a well stocked gift shop selling a wide range of railway souvenirs, items perfect for holidaymakers and daytrippers, plus Thomas the Tank Engine merchandise. Also on offer are snacks and light refreshments.

Pay and Display Parking is available nearby.

Lakeside Station

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.

Platform One Café offers delicious breakfasts, lunches and refreshments. 

Humberston

Our other terminus station was added as part of the railways extension in 2007 and is popular with walkers and bird watchers.

The station has some outstanding views of the Humber Estuary and is also conveniently situated near Thorpe Park.
