• Saltburn-by-the-Sea: A quaint English village

    2010-06-29

    Europe travel is often confined to the more popular big cities, but there are plenty of sights to see in the countryside. One such town is Saltburn-by-the-Sea, a small town on the coast of England.

    Saltburn was founded by a railway magnate, who originally based the layout off of Jerusalem. Travelers will definitely want to take the train in from nearby Middlesbrough, as the railway station is located at the edge of a cliff, and the track uses a "cliff lift" system that provides a controlled descent down the hill, giving travelers a great view of the Atlantic.

    The city is famous for surfing, and various competitions attract surfers from across the UK. Beach life dominates Saltburn's culture, much of it centered around the town's pier.

    Life in Saltburn is quaint, but friendly. The locals engage in all sorts of traditional events, ranging from the simple (folk festival) to the strange (duck race), and the pubs are said to be lively at night.

    Vacationers can enjoy the ample beach space and stunning Victorian architecture in this quiet town, a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of European cities.
