Area Information

The seaside resort of Redcar is famous for its racecourse and its 8 miles of beautiful sandy beach running from South Gare to Saltburn by the Sea. The coastline here is a hotspot for fossil hunters, with Gryphaea (or, Devil's Toenails) often discovered in the sands. Along the seafront there are a variety of traditional arcades to enjoy and the town once was known for its beautiful traditional pier. However, due to extensive damage the pier was demolished in the 1980s. Today the town houses the world's oldest surviving lifeboat, the Zetland, in the town's seafront museum. The lifeboat was built by Henry Greathead of South Shields and has been stationed in Redcar since 1802 when the Redcar RNLI was founded. The Redcar RNLI is one of the oldest stations in the UK and recently featured on the BBC's Saving Lives at Sea, following the brave crew members in their work.
