Landmark Tourist Spot
Roseberry Topping is a distinctive and iconic landmark with fine views across North Yorkshire and Cleveland.

At just 1,049 feet (320 m) high, Roseberry Topping may not be the biggest hill you'll ever see, but it will certainly be one of the most distinctive. Its shape, caused by the combination of a geological fault and a mining collapse in 1912 has made the hill the most beloved landmark in the Tees Valley area. With its half-cone summit and jagged cliff, some say it reminds them of the Matterhorn in Switzerland.

While many visitors come to conquer the hill, there's plenty more to do besides with a fantastic array of habitats to discover. Explore bluebell woods, heather moorland, the open expanses of Roseberry Common and a long abandoned quarry.

Don't miss:

• Amazing panoramic views from the summit of the hill.

• Spot fantastic wildlife in the woods.

• Take a walk to Newton Moor to enjoy swathes of purple heather in the summer and admire Roseberry Topping from a distance.

• Uncover Roseberry's industrial past and explore its geology in Cliff Rigg Quarry.

• Visit in spring for the best displays of bluebells for miles around.
