The local area guide to living in Saltburn-by-the-Sea

Saltburn-by-the-Sea is a small seaside town found 12 miles east of Middlesbrough, on the coast of South Yorkshire. Home to the Saltburn pier, the only pier that remains in North Yorkshire.

Surfing is a popular pursuit, with the town being one of the best surf spots on the coastline, and the pier was declared ‘Pier of the Year’ in 2009 by the National Piers Society. Its history goes back centuries, the pier itself having been built in 1867, and the Saltburn Cliff Lift is one of the oldest funicular lifts in Britain, erected in 1884 and still operated even today.

Annual events are a common occurrence in the town, with a particularly notable one being the Duck Race, with awards granted for the best-named duck, as well as the fastest. The town, with its history, Victorian houses and exquisitely maintained Italian gardens, is a pretty one, a jewel of the Yorkshire coastline and a lovely seaside destination.

Information about the local residents

Whilst the current town exists thanks to the development of industry in the town, due to the nearby iron, stone quarries and railways, today the industrial past is just that; the past. Most of the residents work in a professional capacity, with some commuting to nearby towns or cities such as Middlesbrough.

The population is older than much of the nation, with the average age of 46, as opposed to a national average of 40. The population is also overwhelmingly English, with 98% of the town hailing from England, and many of them from the town itself. Strong Quaker roots also exist in the town, and whilst that sect is no longer as active, 60% of the town identify as Christian and a portion of those attend one of the several churches within the town.

Many of the residents are homeowners, with homeowner populations proving to be 3% more than the national average. House prices are also nearly 50% lower than the country at large. Those seeking a stunning Victorian property that’s still in excellent condition should, therefore, consider moving to Saltburn.

Nearby schools

One school campus can be found in Saltburn though it does host two separate schools. The Saltburn Primary school offers primary education, whilst older students attend the Huntcliff School. Whilst they remain independent, there is a great deal of cooperation between the two institutes, and the facility they both occupy was specially adapted to meet the needs of modern schooling.

Several schools can also be found within a few miles of the town, should a parent wish to send their child outside Saltburn. One popular choice is the nearby Freebrough academy, which offers secondary as well as 6th form education. There are also several small nurseries in the town as well, whilst nearby Middlesbrough hosts several universities and colleges.

Getting around

The simplest way to get around is via the motorway systems. The A714 runs through Saltburn and connects it to the larger A171 that leads to Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough can also be reached via the Saltburn rail station, which sits on the Northern Rail line, and also connects to Darlington and Bishop Auckland. Taxi hire services are available, as are several coach and bus services. The nearest airport lies on the other side of Middlesbrough, around 35 minutes away, serving both domestic and international routes.

Local shops

Saltburn-by-the-Sea boasts all the essential amenities that you could ever need. A supermarket, deli, wine merchant, art stores, and clothes boutiques can all be found within the town. As a prime surf spot, there is a surf school to be found as well, plus, a leisure centre and a golf club, one designed by famed Golf course architect James Baird.

More fashionable High Street stores can be found in nearby Middlesbrough, which has several top shopping centres hosting brands such as H&M, Primark, Monsoon and more.
