The Durham and North East coast is best explored on foot along the coastal path to appreciate the natural beauty and rural landscape.

Along this part of the coast, you can also explore the industrial heritage of the many small mining communities. The inspiration of the fictional town in the Billy Elliot film and musical, these colliery towns which seem idyllic today were once industrial centres. Discover a wealth of local tales, which bring to life this important part of our heritage.

For a spot of retail therapy, Dalton Park, just inland from the coast is one of the largest outlet shopping centres in the North East with a wide variety of shops and restaurants.  

To the south, is the Tees valley with its seaside towns of Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea. These popular resorts in the Victorian era are home to a water powered cliff lift and impressive pier that extends 200 metres from the shoreline
