Essential Redcar

Cruise to the Coast

Enjoy a traditional seaside holiday at Redcar, a town that can truly claim to offer something for all tastes. With its flat sandy beaches, shopping facilities, restaurants, and a wealth of historical interest...not forgetting the cinema, museums, amusements and racecourse, it can't possibly get much better...Wrong!!!

Redcar has recently undergone some exceptional seafront regeneration and is now home to the iconic landmark ‘The Redcar Beacon'. This stunning architectural design masterpiece rises 80ft in to the skyline of Redcar, providing spectacular panoramic views of Redcar and the neighbouring towns, which will take your breath away. Newly opened in 2013, this iconic development is fully accessible so make sure you are one of the first to take the journey to the top of the Redcar Beacon.

The creation of the Redcar Beacon is only one part of the seafront regeneration and compliments the newly refurbished promenade, the development of ‘The Palace Hub' and many other exciting projects.

Museum Time

A short distance from the town is the historic village of Kirkleatham, home to Kirkleatham Museum. Here you will find inspiring exhibitions, a full events programme and fun activities for all the family.
