Head to the delightful coastal town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea for a fun trip up a sea-cliff lift and dine on fish and chips with a view.
Saltburn-by-the-Sea in Redcar, on northeast England’s coast, is home to Britain’s oldest operating water-balanced cliff lift – a funicular powered by water – which you can ride up and down between town and beach, taking in stunning sea views and imagining Victorian holidaymakers doing the same when it was built in the late 19th century.
The Victorian Spa town has a wealth of outstanding architecture and original features – admire its magnificent 183 metre (600 feet) long Victorian Pier, stroll along the seafront to Valley Gardens and take a ride on the miniature railway. Enjoy Saltburn’s famous fish and chips with breathtaking views of curving, golden sands and rugged sea cliffs.
If you’re lucky, you might catch the creations of the ‘Yarn Bombers’, who regularly make national news with their fabulous and elaborate knitted creations that mysteriously appear in the town overnight.
Saltburn is 3 hours 25 minutes from London by rail.
