Fancy a squeeze?

The Signal Box Inn, Cleethorpes (Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway)
The Signal Box Inn, Cleethorpes

If you're a budding train spotter who likes nothing more than to sink a thirst-quenching pint as you admire the 2:41 from Kings Cross, the cosy Signal Box Inn is definitely for you. Measuring, in tune with its name, just 2.4 metres x 2.4 metres, this downsized watering hole is unofficially (the owners haven't got round to registering the record with Guinness) the world's smallest pub.
Housed in what was originally the signalman's hut at Lakeside Station on Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, the inn was opened in 2006 and, despite its size, serves up an impressive collection of local ales along with the obligatory bar snacks.
