Eston is a town within the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It forms part of the Middlesbrough agglomeration on Teesside, but is outside the borough boundary. With other suburbs it forms a Greater Eston area.

The large town of Eston lies at the foot of Eston Hills, a ridge 150-200 m above sea level, and a part of the Cleveland Hills. The land around Eston has been occupied since 2400 BC, but it was the discovery of ironstone in Eston Hills by industrialists from Middlesbrough (most notably Henry Bolckow & John Vaughan) in 1841 that saw Eston's development start in 1850, from two cottages to a thriving mining town.

Eston today has undergone change. The Eston square area has many small businesses, including numerous fast food/takeaways. This has come under criticism as there are several takeaways in such a small area. In 2007 there were developments to the precinct area, with new shops opening.

The square has also been entered into the Northumbria in Bloom competition in recent years, with regular work being carried out by members of the Eston Residents Association.

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has its main administrative offices in the Teesville area of Greater Eston, on Fabian Road.
