  • Let's of fantastic art and antique shops, good book stores , jewellers, outdoor clothing, and we'll stocked butcher shops. Gorgeous Fish & Chips at No 149 in the high street. Well worth a visit to the old castle. And there's a nice park for the kids. River walk and ice cream.
  • Lovely little town with great shops and places to visit. Best time to visit is 1st Saturday of the month between 10am and 3pm when the farmer's market is on! Amazing, local and fresh produce!
  • Lovely historic place to visit. Plenty of places to eat. Just had a lovely fish and chip lunch. Lovely scenic walks next to the river Tees
  • Great on a sunny day with nice walks along the river. Centre not that big can walk down one side and back up the other easily in an hour.
  • A nice ruin from 11th century, the earliest parts, that's located just by the river in the middle of town with the same name as the castle. Was quite a massive structure back in the days with big outer wall area and inner keep. But sadly nowadays there's not much left of the castle but still a nice visit if you're nearby. I stopped by back in 2001 when I was on a roadtrip through England.
