Saltburn Bank Climb

It was recently featured in the 2023 British National Road Cycling Championship as cyclists descended on the 25% gradient hill that helps connect Saltburn town centre with the sea-front, cliff lift, beach, and pier.

The Saltburn Bank Climb features two steep hairpin bends, going past The Spa Hotel and Tomahawk Restaurant and eventually leads you on to Brotton after passing the Saltburn Miniature Railway.


This is one of the most famous videos of Saltburn Bank, when a number of motorists struggled to climb the bank in snowy conditions – whilst a bus managed to comfortably climb it.
