Sights to See
In and Around Saltburn
Saltburn Pier & Vertical Tramway
Saltburn Pier is the last remaining pier on the North-East coast of England.
Development on the pier was started in 1867 and completed in 1869 as the showpiece of the Saltburn coastal resort.
In 1884 the vertical lift was replaced with a water powered tramway, which for 75p will take you to the bottom of the cliff and the pier.
Once on the beach you can take a right and walk to the bottom of Huntley Cliff or perhaps into the Victorian Valley Gardens or in the Summer take a look at the old Mortuary that is part of the collection of buildings that make up the original Saltburn.
Or you can take a left along the beach and wander up the beach to Maske or perhaps if you’re more adventurous Redcar or if you’re really up for a challenge as far as the Tees Esturary 12 miles away where you can see the last of the Cleveland Steel Industry.
Either way it is easy to spend a pleasant day messing about on the beach.
