Where we are

Our location gives us the best of all worlds.

Days out in stunning countryside, surfing at the coast or hiking in the North York Moors – it's all an option here.

Nestled away in a region that’s the country’s best kept secret, we are surprising and comforting in equal measure.

Rivers. Beaches. Forests. Moors. All on our doorstep.

As the natural centre of the Tees Valley region, an area home to around 670,000 people, we’ve got stacks to offer you, however you like to live or spend your precious time.

Our town centre is being transformed with modern urban living.

The oldest part of town, close to the waterfront, is being brought back to life as we approach Middlesbrough’s 200th birthday.

The leisure and cultural possibilities in and around Middlesbrough are endless.

From our beautiful parks to the town’s arts and heritage venues, there is much to see and do.
