Things to do at Saltburn-by-the-sea Beach review

Saltburn-by-the-sea is one of North Yorkshire’s prettiest seaside resorts. It is a lot smaller than Scarborough and Whitby but there’s still plenty to see and do and the beach is well worth spending some time on.

At high tide, there is just a small pebbled section of beach accessible on foot but at low tide, there is a vast expanse of golden sandy beach. The highlight of the town is the funicular railway from 1884. It has stained glass windows and offers rides from the top of the town with its many restaurants down to the beach and its tourist attractions.

The lift stops right in front of the pier and it is incredibly picturesque. The pier has a small amusement arcade and the pier comes to life at night with coloured lights. There are some pretty colourful beach huts and a crazy golf course. Plus a little way inland you will find a wonderful miniature railway. The railway runs past a play area, gardens and up to Saltburn Valley woodland centre.
