Surf & Turf

Redcar and Cleveland can justifiably lay claim to being the outdoor capital of the North East due to its accessibility to the sea and to the wide open spaces and stunning landscape. The urban centres and surrounding area offer an abundance of leisure activities for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The coastline has one of the longest stretches of sandy beaches in the UK. This provides the perfect setting for a wide range of outdoor pursuits, from traditional bucket-and-spade fun to surfing. You can also experience the thrills of boogie boarding, surf skiing or windsurfing; sailing or fishing. In fact the waves are so good in this area that it really is ‘surf central’ for the North East.


There are opportunities to either hike for miles or stroll for an hour, through unspoilt landscapes and beside scenic beaches. Guisborough is the gateway to the North York Moors National Park, giving access to footpaths and bridleways stretching across moorland to picturesque villages like Skelton, Loftus and Skinningrove. Guisborough Forest offers mountain biking and cycling routes, and is an ideal place to explore and view the surrounding landscape.


The heritage rich and majestically beautiful Eston Hills present unrivalled views of the Tees Valley and all that it has to offer. Enjoy a round of golf or horse riding, birdwatching or dog walking whilst enjoying the wide open countryside. Of course you may well fancy a flutter on a horse as they race around some of our finest turf at Redcar racecourse.

Whilst there are already many outdoor events the intention is to build on this programme with a range of options that are all linked to activity, whether that be triathlons, runs, tough mudder or kite and land surfing.

This will open up the area to a whole new generation of visitors and provides a huge opportunity for the visitor economy. This will spark demand for different types of accommodation, eating establishments and the night time economy offer.
