With a proud heritage in steel and industry, ‘the mighty’ Redcar is also home to the region’s favourite ‘bucket and spade’ beach.
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 and not to mention a selection of amusement arcades, fish ‘n chip shops and the legendary lemon top ice cream.
The value of Redcar can’t be overstated – with free weekend parking, a great range of shops, a packed programme of events and family attractions including the world’s oldest surviving lifeboat at Zetland Lifeboat Museum, Redcar is a must for an impromptu day out.
Take a walk to the top of the Redcar Beacon for stunning 360 degree views before relaxing in one of our great restaurants or growing number of micropubs.
There is also action-packed horse racing at Redcar Racecourse, which offers 18 days racing from April to November or the chance to discover the rich heritage of Redcar and Cleveland at Kirkleatham Museum and Grounds.
