The volunteers of this museum deserve a great deal of praise for the way it is maintained and presented. Volunteer Lil was especially informative and it was easy to detect that she and others were proud of the place and the heritage it represented. Possibly...MoreThanks Alex. We're very proud of our volunteers as well as the museum.

Kirkleatham Owl Center

Reviewed By Michael L - Middlesbrough

I was brought here by my wife today against my better judgement. I hate to see animals and birds caged up. I would rather watch TV programmes about them in their natural habitat. The only pleasing thing was the hens following us looking for food. The cages were dirty, labelled incorrectly regarding the inmates and the inmates themselves seemed bored. In the case of the Hornbill, his cell seemed small for such a bird and he was exhibiting signs of stress. One building had a couple of Hawks shackled on the grass and its roof was in need of urgent repair. By the time we exited, my wife was dabbing her eyes and I, a burly ex steel worker, had a lump in my throat. Outside of a Home for Dementia patients, this was the saddest place I've ever experienced.

Went here as an owner on Caribbean day. They have changed the venue for eating to upstairs in the main stand and it is certainly an improvement in quality, not as good as Newcastle are now but an improvement none the less.

Redcar Beach

Reviewed By Steve M - Redcar, United Kingdom

The town used to advertise its 'Eight Miles of Golden Sands' stretching from the mouth of the Tees to Saltburn. When the tide is out there are rock pools for children to explore; when the tide is in, there is the lifeboat museum, amusement arcades ad plenty of cafes and restaurants along the sea front. It's still a great place to spend a day.

Took 2 of the grandchildren for the first time aged 9 and 7. They both loved it. Although on the face of it it seems expensive it's great value for money. The staff were great with the children , understanding their nervousness and different levels of ability. They both can't wait to go back again.

Zetland Park

Reviewed By Steve M - Redcar, United Kingdom

The land was gifted to the town by Lord Zetland when the Coast Road area of the town was developed. There are tennis courts, a children's play area, extensive beds of flowers and shrubs. It is generally fairly well sheltered from the prevailing north-easterly breeze. It's also directly opposite the Stray Cafe - ideal for ise creams, snacks and hot & cold drinks.

Redcar Beacon

Reviewed By Rob L

A total eyesore on a beachfront that has no other amusements other than amusement arcades. The money would have been better spent upgrading either the town centre by not closing down all the shops, or by adding more toilets to the sea front!
