Tour Outline: 

Ever wanted to learn more about the Zetland Lifeboat? Or the Coatham Marsh? Or maybe the Redcar Beacon. Well, now you can whilst taking part in a new, unique and exciting experience. This is one of the first E-Scooter tours to hit the North East and provides a wonderful opportunity to see Redcar like never before.

We will begin the tour with a quick E-scooter introduction and safety tutorial. The tour will go at a leisurely pace and include plenty of stoppages for photos and questions. So this is a perfect experience for both scooter experts and novices alike.

The tour will offer an in-depth look at the history and culture of Redcar, from its humble beginnings as a fishing hamlet to its modern roots in steel and industry.

Our first stop will be Zetland Park, where you will learn all about Redcar’s recent Victorian history. Discover how the railway and racecourse once made this small town the beating heart of the Teeside area.

From here, we will scoot west to Locke Park and delve into the area’s medieval history. Redcar has a deep and intriguing backstory dating right back to the Domesday Book. Throughout the middle ages, the area has been rocked by scandal, in-fighting, invasions and political upheaval. Here stories of Viking, Normans and (of course) Fishermen!

Next, we will head to the coast. As we scoot south down the waterfront you will get spectacular views of the North Sea. This will be a perfect location to test your scooting skill, as you glide along the beach with the fresh sea-breeze pushing you along! You will hear stories of the Coatham Pier, the Redcar Beacon and (if you’re lucky) the famous Edward VIII Memorial Clocktower.

The tour will conclude with the town’s most famous artefact: the Zetland Lifeboat.

This experience brings together the best Redcar has to offer. Presenting fun and informative stories in an exciting E-Scooter format!

At the end of the tour, you will be able to continue renting your Ginger E-Scooter to explore more of the town!
