Perched on the edge of stunning North Yorkshire, this perfectly preserved historic fishing and smuggling area of Saltburn is steeped in ancient history and maintains much of its original charm as a Victorian seaside town.
Its warm and welcoming residents are extremely proud of their heritage, from its oldest public house, The Ship Inn, dating back to the 1500’s to the stunning Saltburn Pier, recently restored to it’s former glory. The pier is the most northerly surviving British Pier and only remaining pleasure pier on the
North East coast.
