Tees Valley, cushioned between County Durham and North Yorkshire, is the perfect place to explore countryside and coast. Take on adventure activities and water sports. Discover pretty market towns and villages. Uncover a proud industrial heritage and marvel at unexpected nature and wildlife.
If it’s history and culture you’re after, embark on a fascinating trip through Maritime history at Hartlepool’s National Museum of the Royal Navy, discover the treasure trove of artefacts and exhibitions at Redcar & Cleveland’s Kirkleatham Museum and Gardens, or visit one of the UK’s leading modern art galleries at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. There are plenty of walking and cycling routes to discover, taking in stunning countryside, dramatic coastline, local parks and gardens. If you want white-knuckle thrills, Tees Barrage International White Water Centre in Stockton offers a range of adrenaline-pumping watersports.
For a more tranquil time, stay in five-star luxury at Darlington’s Rockliffe Hall, complete with its 4AA Rosette Orangery dining room and spa. The area is also home to the North-East’s only two-Michelin starred restaurant, the Raby Hunt. And no trip is complete without a trip to Saltburn for fish and chips. There’s much more for food and drink than Middlesbrough’s famous Parmo – but you can get those too!
