If you do love to be beside the seaside Tees Valley should be in your sights. Golden sands, surfing, a pleasure pier and a working Funicular await you at Saltburn-by-the-Sea where Tees Valley meets the North Yorkshire coast.
If you have a head for heights try the Vertical Pier at nearby Redcar as well as the museum home of the Oldest Lifeboat in the world.
To the North of the river the Victorian resort of Seaton Carew offers unspoilt beaches and traditional arcades and ice-cream parlours. Keep exploring the whole of the Hartlepool Coastline and you’ll not be disappointed.
