The best way to get from one end of the beach (Mablethorpe town) to Seal Sanctuary with stops along the way. Takes about 10 minutes one way or 20 mins round trip. Perfect for everyone of all ages. Only costs about a pound !

An enjoyable ride along the beach, the driver's pretty friendly and considerate. Last train time is a little inconsistant. High recommended in good weather.
