A grand setting for all manner of events
The impressive and imposing Grade II-listed sandstone Middlesbrough Town Hall dates back to the late 19th century, and has had many uses over the years. These days it's a concert hall and theatre which, thanks to its French Gothic exterior, also serves as a local landmark. The main hall also boasts an original organ from 1898.
Shop 'til you drop in the local area
The Town Hall is perfectly situated for shopping trips, with the Dundas Shopping Centre and Indoor Market immediately north of the building, the Hillstreet Shopping Centre just to the west, and Cleveland Shopping Centre to the south. All are within walking distance.
There's far more to Middlesbrough than its town hall and shopping areas - Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art is a must for fans of Tracey Emin, Frank Auerbach and the like, as it holds works by both those and more. Elsewhere Newham Grange Leisure Farm is worth a visit for those with young ones in tow, and no trip to the town would be complete without sampling the local delicacy: a parmo.
