Have you recently booked a stay in Middlesbrough and are looking around to see what this wonderful city has to offer? Our beautiful Serviced Accommodation in Middlesbrough is located on the River Tees, just five kilometres from Teesport, England's third-largest port.
Middlesbrough is a large industrial town in North Yorkshire, located on the south bank of the Tees River. Teesside is well-known for its industries and bridges, especially the renowned Transporter Bridge, which acts as the county's emblem.
Tees Transporter Bridge
Tees Transporter Bridge, which was opened in 1911 and is the world's longest operating transporter bridge, has become an icon in Middlesbrough. It's also a well-known symbol of Teesside's engineering and industrial heritage.
For more than a century, the bridge has been an essential and unique feature of Middlesbrough's history, offering a key route across the River Tees. The bridge has recently become a major historic visiting site as well as one of England's premier destinations for extreme outdoor sports like abseils, bungee jumps, and zip-lines.
Tees Transporter Bridge has also won lottery funding to aid in its construction and renovation. This makeover included a glass observation lift, a gondola, and work on cutting-edge tourism resources.
If you're visiting Middlesbrough, take the new glass observation lift to the top of the Transporter for breathtaking views. There are also great and exciting audio tours available throughout the day.
A trip up to the walkway via the glass elevator or the stairwell challenge is part of the visitor experience; which will you choose? Why not bring your friends or family to Middlesbrough for a fun day trip?
