Yarm

Yarm is a small town in the North East of England, close to Stockton, Middlesbrough and Darlington..

Yarm boasts over twelve superb eating houses within its high street, It revolves around a quaint yet busy high street. It is dominated by a cobbled High Street which runs along the centre of the loop formed by the Tees. At the centre of the High Street is the little Dutch style Town Hall built in 1710 by Viscount Fauconberg, who was Lord of the Manor of Yarm. Yarm is traditional (its impressive 43-arch railway viaduct shadows one of the widest cobbled streets in England) and modern (with a varied choice of chic shops, exclusive restaurants and wide range of pubs with beer gardens).

This is one of the reasons why BBC Breakfast viewers voted Yarm as the UK's best high street.

Middlesbrough

At one time it was the fastest growing town in England and even supplied the steel for the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. Running through Middlesbrough from its source high up on the Pennines is the River Tees, one of the great rivers of England.

The most famous bridge over the Tees is Middlesbrough's Transporter Bridge; this masterpiece of engineering is the only operating bridge of its type in the world. Middlesbrough is also the retail capital of Tees Valley with more shopping floor space than Gateshead's Metro Centre.

No visit is complete without a trip to the award-winning designer store, Psyche. Our leisure facilities are second to none, there are golf courses, roller skating and equestrian sports too. The new Prissick Skate Park is arguably the best in the UK and a visit to Middlesbrough s Riverside Stadium is a must! Or visit Mima - Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, a major new modern and contemporary art gallery, hosting a regular programme of international exhibitions, presenting the best in art and craft from 1900 to today.

Stockton-on-Tees

Located between Middlesbrough and Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees has become one of the most impressive international water sports destinations around. The building of the Tees Barrage had created a deep, clean waterway making the river excellent for whitewater rafting and other water sports.

Visitors can take a trip on the Teesside Princess River Cruise, step on board a full sized replica of Captains Cook's HM Bark Endeavour, visit Preston Hall Museum and Country Park or have a flutter at Sedgefield Racecourse.

For culture vultures, there is the Arc and Billingham Forum Theatre and Stockton's Riverside Festival, the UK's finest street arts festival.
