Saltburn by the sea

I also blog over here: Scribbles from the Middle

 

Before I start I must confess something. I haven’t visited this place. I LIVE in this place. And even though I may be accused of being biased I am going to continue anyway, because I do believe my sleepy little seaside town nestled on the North East Coast deserves a mention.

Snuggled away on the border between the North east and North Yorkshire, Saltburn by the sea is definitely worth a visit… if you just happen to find yourself in the area.

It’s one of those places that just has more going on that you realise. And when you start exploring, you realise there’s enough to keep you preoccupied for the whole day.

You can meander through a choice of Art Galleries  or visit a speciality market…

Farmer’s Market

Stroll along a pier or through the Italian Gardens…

And if that isn’t reason enough, Saltburn has a couple more tricks up its sleeve. Saltburn has its very own mystery knitter (who has made national news)…

and it is the home town of X Factor finalist James Arthur…

Still not tempted? How about a knitted James Arthur? You can’t get one of those anywhere else…

Good Luck James!

One thought on “Saltburn by the sea

  1. I lived in Saltburn for the first three years of my life so it’s special to me and holds those first, blurry but fascinating memories – in particular the valley gardens. Apparently I was quite a fan of the family room in the Ship too!
