Saltburn by the Sea logo

Out and about.

Discover the spectacular Heritage Coastline , and countryside.

Saltburn by the Sea is sandwiched between the Heritage Coast of Cleveland and the North York Moors National Park. With its towering cliff faces and rolling countryside it is an area of stark contrasts and surprises! The area offers a wealth of attractions and events, sporting and leisure facilities, retail therapy and gastronomy, nightlife and wildlife.

Wherever you choose to wander there are walks in the region to suit everyone. Whether you enjoy walking along soaring cliffs listening to the call of seabirds and taking in the breathtaking sea views, trekking over heather-wrapped hills and moors, visiting bustling market towns or wandering through tranquil forests you can get away from it all right here. Take a circular route or long distance trail and enjoy the magnificent mix of countryside and coast.

Though yet in its early stages we are developing this part of the website to provide fingertip access to some of those places, attractions and facilities that surround Saltburn and its gritty ironstone heritage.

Saltburn itself has much to offer the visitor. Developed originally as a Victorian seaside resort it still offers beautiful gardens set amongst preserved woodland, long stretches of sandy beach and rugged sea cliffs. It is also home to the oldest remaining water balanced cliff lift in Britain still in operation as well as a miniature railway and the now diminished yet still magnificent Victorian pleasure pier. The town itself is on the Cleveland Way and just south of the town beneath the towering mass of Huntcliff the original hamlet of (Old) Saltburn still endures the ravages of the North Sea.
