Saltburn’s Cliff Lift has been awarded the winner of the 2023 Seaside Heritage Awards in the annual bucket and spade list, beating other of the country’s favourite seaside attractions such as Blackpool Tower and South Cliff Gardens in Scarborough.

The winners were announced at Blackpool Winter Gardens on the 11th September, in which Dr Kahryn Ferry said:

There’s a strong nostalgic element to these finalists but that’s no bad thing, it shows how embedded the seaside holiday and seaside resorts are within our island culture. Too often, these towns get a bad press but it’s time to change perceptions and celebrate the joy and entertainment the seaside has brought to generations of Britons.
