Redcar is a seaside resort in the northeast of England, and a major town in the unitary authority of Redcar and Cleveland in the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, it lies 7.5 miles (12.1 km) east-north-east of Middlesbrough by the North Sea coast.
