With a proud heritage in steel and industry, ‘the mighty’ Redcar is also home to breath-taking landscapes, picturesque beaches, and endless coastline making Redcar a truly idyllic seaside resort!

The golden sands, under which lay the remains of an occasionally revealed 7,000 year old forest, are framed by the swimming-quality waters of the north sea and a bustling town centre; home to high street names, quirky independents, a selection of amusement arcades, fish ‘n chip shops and the legendary lemon top ice cream. Not forgetting the iconic landmark The Redcar Beacon. This stunning masterpiece rises 80ft in to the skyline providing spectacular panoramic views of Redcar and the neighbouring towns.

The value of Redcar can’t be overstated – with a packed programme of events and family attractions including the world’s oldest surviving lifeboat at Zetland Lifeboat Museum, the rich heritage of Kirkleatham Museum and the action packed horse racing calendar at Redcar Racecourse a fun filled visit is definitely in store! Thrill seekers can enjoy windsurfing, kite surfing, whiles there’s the option of fishing on the beach or rocky gullies fir those who prefer something slightly less intense.
