Travel Tips for Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough's Town Hall looks strangely out of place! It looks like it should belong in Brussels or somewhere, not Middlesbrough!
The only decent looking building in Middlesbrough centre, it's 'crypt' is the home to a smaller concert venue (Robbie Williams played here before he was 'huge').
Unique River Crossing
You drive your car onto a platform (the yellow thing, below) and the whole platform is carried across the river by a bogie on the top of the bridge. It's unreal! It costs less than 1 UK pound to take your car and passengers across, which considering how much it costs to maintain the bridge is remarkable value for money.
When you get to the other side, turn straight round and come back. You don't want to be on the other side!
Middlesbrough - League Cup Winners 2004
A visit to the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough to watch the local Premier Division team is highly recommended. There is a great deal on talent currently on display on match days.
I have been a season ticket holder at the club since 1981 when I was just a child. I've rarely missed a home game since and have seen Middlesbrough play in three different divisions during that time. Tickets for matches can be obtained by contacting the ticket office in advance of the game. There is also a club shop in the centre of the town from which ticketys can be purchased.
I suppose the most memorable night for me has to be the recent first game in Europe against Banik Ostrava. Middlesbrough came out as 3-0 victors. Bring warm clothes in winter. There can be a cold wind blowing from the river. You will see me in winter with three jumpers under my coat!
If you're a fan of walking,...
If you're a fan of walking, pretty countryside and lakes, then Gormire is worth a visit... Head out of Thirsk towards Sutton Bank and then turn for Thirlby when you reach Sutton-Under-Whitestone-Cliff (apparently the longest village name in England!) once in thirlby village, drive down towards the end of the village but instead of following the road towards Boltby, turn off to the left through a small ford and follow the lane for approx 2 miles until there's an enterance in the woodland straight ahead.. park up (or leave ur bike/transport) wherever you can.. and follow the wooden board path around the lake.. of if you're brave.. head up the steep path and explore the hillside of cherry tree's and heather! This picture is an aerial view from the top of the bank..
Historic Quay in...
Historic Quay in Hartlepool.
At the Historic Quay, and included in the ticket price is the Museum of Hartlepool and although not very big it is very interesting. You can follow the story of the area from the prehistory to the present day.
