Coronavirus – Visitor advice & information

Redcar and Cleveland Visual Border

last updated: 23.07.2020

Maintaining the safety of everyone in Redcar and Cleveland is our top priority and we are urging everyone to follow Government guidelines and take steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The following attractions have reopened, please check their websites for further information.

As of Monday 1st June, the following car parks will reopen:

  • Majuba Road in Redcar;
  • the Coast Road car park between Redcar and Marske;
  • the Pier and Cat Nab car parks in Saltburn;
  • Guisborough Forest and Walkway;
  • Flatts Lane Country Park;
  • Errington Woods;
  • Foxrush Farm;
  • And the Council-owned car parks in Newton Under Roseberry and Cowbar.

Pay and Display charges will also resume and the Council is encouraging people wherever possible to use the RingGo app, rather than cash at the machines to prevent the spread of Covid-19. You can find the Ring Go app on the Apple and Google App stores by searching for ‘Ring Go Parking’. If you don’t want to download the app you can call 0203 432 4302 and give the location number displayed on parking signs in the car park itself.

All council-owned public toilets will also reopen 9am till 4pm with additional signage to ensure people follow strict social distancing rules, and regular cleaning regimes and inspections will be carried out.

We know how much our coastline and countryside mean to our residents, but the pandemic is not yet over. Please be considerate of others and keep your distance. We would encourage people to use the car parks to make daily exercise a more pleasurable experience but not to stay too long.

As of Saturday 4 July, the following will remain closed, until further notice

  • Zetland Lifeboat Museum
  • Guisborough Museum
  • Winkies Castle
  • Saltburn Cliff Tramway
  • Tuned In!
  • Ormesby Hall including garden and parkland
  • Redcar Beacon
  • The Palace Hub

All libraries throughout the borough are closed – A book delivery service is available vulnerable and housebound residents. This will be done with the one of the Council’s electric vans with books being delivered directly to people’s doorsteps. These residents will be contacted individually.
The Council is encouraging people to download the ‘Borrow Box’ app – visit borrowbox.com. Residents will need their library card number and PIN number which they can access by telephoning 01642 774774 as an alternative way of borrowing books.

All council organised events are cancelled until further notice. Event information will be updated on our What’s On section.
