The delightful promenade boasts stunning views of Huntcliff and is home to its very own water powered cliff lift, which dates back to 1884. Also on the promenade is Saltburn’s famous pier, the most northerly surviving, and recently extended pier in Britain, which has also been recently known as the main target of the knitting craze known as ‘Yarn Bombing’. Both of which are perfect for a leisurely stroll on a fine evening, or sunny afternoon. There are lots of activities in Saltburn including surfing, fishing, golf and swimming. You can also enjoy horse riding by taking a trek across the beach. Recently opened is Saltburn’s ‘Art Bank’, a custom built gallery housing the latest works of local artists, sculptors and craftsmen, or if you prefer the Theatre, there is plenty to enjoy at Saltburn’s community theatre which hosts many events from screen plays to comedy nights. Both are within walking distance and less than 250 yards.
The historic town of Whitby is definitely worth a day out; you can sample its famous fish and chips or visit the stunning Abbey! It can be accessed both by car, and from the pretty cobbled streets in the old town via the famous 199 steps. You could also walk from Whitby along the 3 miles of golden sands up the coast to the pretty resort of Sandsend. The picture postcard villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robins Hoods Bay are also worthy of a day’s outing. You could also enjoy the experience of the North Yorkshire Moors steam train, which meanders through the moors villages of Grosmont, Goathland (aka Aidensfield in the TV series Heartbeat) and Levisham en route from Whitby to the lively market town of Pickering.
