Redcar to Whitby

The Challenge

This walk is superb and the views from the cliff tops and of the fishing villages along the route are excellent. We pass through the picturesque villages of Saltburn by the Sea, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Sandsend before we arrive in Whitby

We start at 8am on the Saturday at Redcar promenade and finish 10-12½ hours later in Whitby where we have hot drinks and snacks before dispersing.

Distance is 24.3 miles to Whitby but you can finish at several places on route like Saltburn, Staithes or Runswick Bay (16.3 miles) if you choose not to walk the full distance.

Don’t forget your camera for this scenic and enjoyable walk, mainly along the cliff tops, to Whitby.


Promenade, undulating fields and tracks, grass cliff top paths. Pavement and road in some parts.
