Standing dominant and proud on the River Tees in North Yorkshire, is the post-industrial town of Middlesbrough. Founded in 1830, its history is relatively ‘modern’. This doesn’t make it any less interesting. The Transporter Bridge, opened in 1911, spans the city and gives it a prominent feature.
Indeed, Middlesbrough is probably best known for its football. Middlesbrough Football Club dates back to 1876 and goes by the nicknames Smoggies or the Boro. It should also be known for being a thriving heart of the commercial north. Now a university city, with bustling leisure and entertainment options, Middlesbrough is a great place to be.
