A stroll through Saltburn's Victorian roots

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This short walk is one of our coastal ambles.  Saltburn was once an important Victorian seaside town. Today it still retains that grandeur; with the North East’s only pleasure pier and the oldest working water-balanced inclined tramway in Britain. There are plenty of fascinating finds to discover here, including the Valley Gardens, a miniature railway and artisan cafes and shops. Peruse the town to get to know its history and sample its quirkier delights.

  • Distance: just under 2 miles/ 3.2 kilometres
  • Duration:  allow 2 1/2 hours with plenty of breaks
  • Difficulty: This is a generally easy ramble, with a bit of a climb out of the Valley Gardens to reach the top of Saltburn, then the option of the Cliff Lift to return to beach level
