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.

General Tips for Visiting Saltburn by the Sea
Pier parking is free. In the amazing spirit of the English, in Saltburn by the Sea, there is free parking by the pier. On warm days with sunny weather, you may need to get there early to snag a spot, but don’t worry about being charged an arm and a leg!
Check the gravity lift times. One of the key attractions of Saltburn is the gravity lift. The lift is likely to be the oldest of its type still in operation in UK. At the beginning of your trip, before you stop by your accommodation in Saltburn by the Sea, drop by the pier to check the hours. At the time of writing, it was a pound to ride, and although there is stairs, it’s definitely a cool experience.

Promising Review: “What a fabulous cozy little roof flat this is. Simple white wall, comfy furniture and a bed that was one of the most blissful we have laid on in ages. Made for a good night sleep. Although not facing the sea you get nice views out over the water from windows in both the sitting room and bedroom. The kitchenette is well supplied with all you need if you want to cook and it was lovely to have the option of a nice bath as well as a shower. Everything was spotlessly clean and warm.”
