North Yorkshire’s most famous town would probably be Harrogate, with its healing spas, parks and gardens, it is one of the top choices for tourists. But, the county has a lot more to offer, with picturesque towns, districts and boroughs comprising it wholly. There are a lot worth seeing in the region; International Centre for Birds of Prey Duncombe in Helmsley, Swinton Park Cookery School in Masham, Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, the National Railway Museum in York and of course, Saltholme Wildlife Reserve & Discovery Park and the historical Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough.

Transporter Bridge
Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge

Situated on the south bank of the historical River Tees, Middlesbrough is a lovely place to visit. It could get up to 20 degrees at most, which is perfect for people like us who loves  to walk around, exploring towns and cities. A quaint English architectural frame describes the town’s landscape. It’s a sight to see and enjoy! Also, experiencing the Transporter bridge is like etching yourself in history… The Transporter bridge, as the name suggest, carry a travelling ‘car’, or ‘gondola’, suspended from the bridge. This particular architectural feat goes across the river in 90 seconds. The gondola can carry 200 people, 9 cars, or 6 cars and one minibus! (Aight, that much!)

Temenos Sculpture

Area-wise, Middlesbrough is not as big as other North Yorkshire districts. Hop on a bus and you can get to the majestic town hall, walk a bit and you’ll find yourself at the Dorman Museum and the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima). To get a fix of high-art, break away from the town centre and visit Middlehaven. There stands the Temenos sculpture, steel structure, consisting of a pole, a circular ring and an oval ring, stands approximately 110 m long and 50 m high and is held together by steel wire designed by sculptor Anish Kapoor and designer Cecil Balmond.  (It’s a £2.7 million.) There are a lot more to see in this humble town but all the walking and that would definitely bring your stomachs to growl and Middlesbrough has a lot to offer on this category, Michelin or not.Continue Reading…
