Quaint fisherman’s villages, ocean view for miles, and viewpoints that rival Positano.
Saltburn by the Sea has long been a favorite weekend trip for Jack, and when we visited in early March, it was instantly a hit for both of us.
The areas of Redcar and Cleveland are easily explored in a few days if you’ve got a lot of energy, but if you’re looking for a slower trip with a few relaxing days by the beach, spend at least a week.

General Tips for Visiting the United Kingdom
One of the best countries in the world, in my opinion at least, is the United Kingdom. Although I’ll never be able to write as well as Bill Bryson, I can provide some tips and tricks for visiting England and Scotland.
For starters, most people coming into the country for tourism purposes won’t need a visa. At the time of writing, United States Citizens can stay in the United Kingdom for up to six months (although this is the maximum amount of time and means that you can’t come back for another 6 months).
If you’re in need of visa help, try iVisa for easy, online visa help.
