Mablethorpe Sand Train
Mablethorpe Sand Train Review
No trip to Mablethorpe on the Lincolnshire coastline would be complete without a ride on their sand train. Sure, there’s lot of land trains all across the UK and as fun as they are I have no plans to include them as a seperate post on this website. The sand train is a different matter though and it more than deserves its own post.
The train has been operating since 1952. It’s not a train that runs on a track instead it gives pleasure rides up and down Mablethorpe’s north beach. There is also a land train but this operates on the roads. This operates on the sand and on the return journey you are even driven through the sea.
The train runs from the main beach in Mablethorpe and then north to the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary with a few stops along the way. A full round trip takes about 20 minutes.
Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places now require you to pre-book online in advance.
