Travelling around Redcar
Redcar is situated on the East Coast of North Yorkshire. A popular holiday resort in Victorian times, this old fishing port has lost none of its character and charm. With spectacular sandy beaches, beautiful architecture and lots of fun activities, there’s plenty to see and do in this pleasant seaside town.
Redcar is easily accessible by road and rail, and Arriva buses run a number of services in the area, with links to nearby towns, such as Guisborough and Saltburn, as well as regular routes to Whitby and Middlesbrough.
No visit to Redcar would be complete without a trip to the beach. This eight-mile strip of golden sand, which stretches from Saltburn to the mouth of the River Tees, affords some wonderful views across the bay. Enjoy a donkey ride, try your luck at the arcades or stroll along the promenade and indulge in some of the finest fish and chips in the county.
Redcar has a proud maritime history and Zetland Lifeboat Museum is the perfect place to explore the town’s rich seafaring heritage. Home to the oldest lifeboat in the world, the museum serves as a fitting tribute to the brave men and women of the RNLI.
Redcar is surrounded by natural beauty, with a number of parks and woodlands within easy reach of the town centre. You might like to unwind at Locke Park, with its serene landscaped gardens, or visit Kirkleatham Museum, a magnificent 18th-century mansion with a museum, aviary and kids’ play park.
As the sun sets over the promenade, this quiet seaside town comes to life, with cocktails, dancing and live entertainment.
