    This sculpture is located in Russell Street, Central Gardens. It is Middlesbrough’s largest and most controversial public sculpture. You maybe can't tell by looking at it but it pays tribute to the town’s most famous citizen, Captain James Cook, the area’s proud iron and steel foundry skills and the cultural changes that are now occurring within the Teesside area.

    Unique Suggestions: Try and catch it when the vandals haven't been out with their spray cans. It does look better then!

    Fun Alternatives: Just a little bit further along is the statue of justice outside the law courts. This is much more interesting.

    Don't rely on this sign!

    Some clown had moved all the signs in the city centre. The arrow towards the tourist information pointed at different directions every time I saw one. So whatever you do, DON'T follow the signs!

    Unique Suggestions: Bring a map!

    Fun Alternatives: Move the signs again so that they are pointing in the right directions again!

    'Can I borow some change for the bus, I am homeless and have been offered a place in a hostel so long as I get there, look, here's the address' This is just one of the many excuses that people use to get money out of you.. there are also buskers, who are generally harmless, and beggers, who call out 'can you spare any change' as you walk past.. some of these will be genuine, but most aren't!
