Trains into Saltburn train station sweep along the North Sea coastline before they pull in to the picturesque town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea in North Yorkshire. The station was once one of the busiest in the area, served by excursion trains packed with holiday makers from throughout the country. However, a makeover in the 1970s saw the station reduced to the two platforms, with the striking former station buildings now home to retail units and flats.
The station runs a half-hour service to Middlesbrough and Darlington from platform 1, with additional services running to Bishop Auckland and Newcastle about an hour and a half away.
The area around the station, which is just ten minutes' walk from the seafront, has a pretty parade of independent shops and eateries and some big-name outlets as well as all the traditional seaside attractions, including a historic cliff lift, Saltburn Pier and a miniature railway, alongside cosy traditional pubs and seaside chippies.
