In Focus: Middlesbrough

February 2017

Middlesbrough is right in the 'middle' of Teesside and the wider Tees Valley. It's at the heart of everything - roads, rivers, country side and between two of the North's great historic destinations, Durham and Whitby.

A lively events programme and Middlesbrough's emerging cultural renaissance reflect the towns on going passion for live entertainment, art and music. Shops, restaurants and nightlife are fab in Middlesbrough. It's the Tees Valley's High Street capital.

Baker Street is Middlesbrough's hub of independent retailers, cafes, salons, micro pubs and more, and there are lots of other independents sprinkled throughout the town too.

Middlesbrough's Town Hall and Theatre boast a rich programme of comedy, music, drama and dance. While Mima Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art hosts a rolling exhibition programme of international significance.

Middlesbrough isn't all bustle and built up town. It's right next to the North York Moors, the Cleveland Way and one of the North East's most famous landmarks, Roseberry Topping. Roseberry Topping's 360 degree views are so spectacular that the Vikings originally named it after their god Odin.
