Middlesbrough is a massive industrial town in North Yorkshire, situated on the south bank of the River Tees. Teesside is known for its industries and bridges, including the renowned Transporter Bridge, which serves as the county's emblem.
Tees Transporter Bridge
Tees Transporter Bridge, which debuted in 1911 and is the world's longest functioning transporter bridge, has become a well-known symbol in Middlesbrough. It's also a famous emblem of Teesside's engineering and industrial past.
The bridge has played an essential and distinctive part in Middlesbrough's history for almost a century, providing a significant passage across the River Tees. In recent years, the bridge has become a popular historic visitor destination and one of England's leading venues for extreme outdoor activities, including abseils, bungee jumps, and zip-lines.
Tees Transporter Bridge has also received lottery money to assist in the construction and restoration of the bridge. A glass observation lift, a gondola, and work on state-of-the-art tourist resources were all part of this renovation.
If you're planning a trip to Middlesbrough, take the new glass observation lift to the top of the Transporter for spectacular views. Throughout the day, there are also excellent and informative audio tours.
A journey up to the walkway via the glass lift or the stairwell challenge is part of the tourist experience - which option will you take? Middlesbrough is a fantastic day trip destination, so why not bring your friends or family?
