About Middlesbrough Railway Station
Middlesbrough Railway Station is the main train station serving the large town of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. The station was designed by prolific architect John Middleton, and opened in the mid-19th century, as part of an extension of the existing Stockton and Darlington Railway, connecting central Middlesbrough with its port.
Out and about in Middlesbrough
Once a small, sleepy town, Middlesbrough went through a period of exponential development in the peak era of the Victorian iron and steel industry, and is now one of the largest towns in the north east. Its most famous landmark is the Blue Transporter Bridge, a relic of early 20th-century industrialism, and the only working transporter bridge in the UK. Its cultural attractions, such as Middlesbrough Theatre and the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art regularly attract visitors, as does the vibrant Baker Street - a lively home of cafes, salons, clothes shops and micro-pubs.
