"Middlesbrough: Bridges and Bridges" Middlesbrough by sabsi

Middlesbrough Travel Guide: 170 reviews and 416 photos

I only spent a few hours in Middlesbrough with Steve and Susan recently. The weather wasn't too nice, we wanted to kill some time so we went for a nice walk through the city.

Middlesbrough is an industrial town in the northeast of England. It's twinned with a German industrial town in my neighbourhood - Oberhausen. A good choice I guess!

When we were there there was a petrol smell in the air. I like industrial towns and I absolutely loved Middlesbrough's Transporter Bridge - but the smell can get a bit annyoing after a while!

Apart from the bridge these phone boxes were my favourite view in Middlesbrough. They are located next to the (magnificent .. so they say!) town hall.... which was in scaffolding when we there there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The great transporter bridge
  • Cons:Not a destination for tourists really. The smell!
  • In a nutshell:I still don't like Chris Rea!

    I once lived in Middlesbrough. It's a dump! You somehow made it look really nice. That takes some effort. I still support boro, though when I was there they were still playing at Ayresome Park and I could hear the fans in my lounge every Saturday.
