Saltburn is a little seaside town in North Yorkshire just a few miles from Middlesbrough and is filled with Victorian charm and smuggler legends. The pier is the last one remaining on the North East coast, with only around 50 pleasure piers surviving in the country. The famous cliff lift has also been attracting tourists for years. The valley gardens are home to a mini railway, a tea room and stunning Italian gardens.

The coastline from Whitby to Saltburn is famed for its smuggler folklore. Remote coastal communities were ideal for smugglers as it was easy for contraband to pass from house to house with no risk of detection. Saltburn was a haven for smugglers with its huge cliffs and coves.
