A short drive from Redcar, Saltburn-by-the-sea bestows plenty of Victorian charm.
Head off for a day at the beach, relax and watch the surfers or have a go yourself. Saltburn Surf School hires surfing equipment and provides lessons (open from noon until 8pm, Lower Promenade, TS12 1HQ).
Fish and chips for lunch is a must followed by a walk along the pier. Don’t forget to take a ride on Saltburn Cliff Lift (open from 11am to 5:30pm), opened in 1884 to replace an earlier vertical hoist, the lift is probably the oldest of its type still operating.
End your day in Saltburn with a stroll around the Valley Gardens Park (TS12 1NY). A great family activity which includes a forest walk to the Italian Gardens and leads on to the railway viaduct.
