From coast to country Redcar & Cleveland on foot
Get out for a walk near Redcar
Summer is a great time to get out for a walk in Redcar, visit the beach, the pier at Saltburn, discover parks and walking routes for family fun.
Enjoy coast and country with a self-guided walk
Pack a day bag and take the children on a walk in Redcar & Cleveland.
Take the bus or hop on the train to Redcar, Marske or Saltburn by the Sea and walk down to the beach for the day.
Or plan a day out following one of the self-guided walking routes in the area.
Walks in the area include:
- Errington Woods – which includes over 9 miles of well maintained paths and is easily accessible from Redcar, Marske and Guisborough
- Guisborough Forest and Walkway
- Roseberry Topping –Climb one of Tees Valley’s most iconic landmarks. A great car-free walk, it's best walked from Great Ayton, which has good bus links and has a station so you can get there by train. This walk is not suitable for very young children, pushchairs or wheelchairs given the nature of paths and terrain.

Hop on the bus or the train to Saltburn, or walk from Redcar or Maske and take a walk through the Saltburn Valley Gardens. A mixture of formal gardens, winding pathways and play areas the gardens are a green oasis along the river. Ride the miniature railway and get fish and chips, have a picnic or visit the café in the park.
