Industrial Tourism

Redcar and Cleveland already attracts many visitors to the area to enjoy its varied offer. This includes the more traditional seaside experience at Saltburn and the beautiful landscape of the North York Moors National Park.

However, the area has got something a little different for the visitor to enjoy – and that’s industry. Whether celebrating amazing and important heritage or looking at industry of the future we have a story to tell that has shaped people and places the world over. We have a wealth of industrial history and heritage to share through our museums and attractions.

Zetland Lifeboat Museum  

The  Land of Iron Museum at Skinningrove celebrates the iron and steel history of the Borough; the Zetland Lifeboat Museum housing the world’s oldest surviving lifeboat first stationed in 1802; Saltburn by the Sea still operates the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain, and retains its Victorian pier, built from local iron, the first and last remaining pleasure pier on the North East coast.

Close by are the historically significant Tees bridges and the site of the Stockton and Darlington railway – this is an area brimming with industrial heritage.

However, there is also considerable interest in the industrial landscape of today and tomorrow with people being fascinated by the ICL Boulby Cleveland Potash mine and the potential of Anglo American’s huge scheme to send polyhalite to the world.

The potential for the future is immense. The Teesworks site is the largest single development site in the country and has the potential to create tens of thousands of jobs over the coming decades.
