Five distinct boroughs big on culture and adventure bursting with things to do and places to see. From dramatic hilltops to rugged coastlines, beautiful countryside to charming villages, Tees Valley may just surprise you
Quality of Life
Quality of life is good here because our people get more for their money. There is a superb variety of homes to suit most incomes. From country cottages to new builds and Victorian houses to executive apartments, there is something for everyone.
Nine out of ten Tees Valley primary schools are either good or outstanding and apprenticeships and support schemes create pathways for our young people.
Culture and History
The area is rich in culture and history with an array of arts offering that includes one of the UK’s leading galleries for modern art, mima. It has a proud railway and maritime heritage and a packed programme of exciting events and festivals, including a spectacular international festival of outdoor art – the Stockton International Riverside Festival – and the increasingly popular artisan food market Orange Pip.
Enjoy the Outdoors
An adventure lover’s paradise, you can surf on the waves at the coast, enjoy the spectacular countryside by foot or bike, enjoy a river boat ride, jet-ski, canoe, kayak, paddle-board or try out our Olympic standard white-water rafting course. We are also home to the only bridge in England that you can bungee jump off – the Transporter Bridge.
