Living And Working In Middlesbrough

Joanna Clare

The town of Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley is situated in north east England adjacent to the Durham border. It is considered to be a fairly small town and is approximately 260 miles from London. It can boast excellent motorway links and regular, fast and efficient rail services direct from London to Edinburgh via nearby mainline stations such as Darlington. The nearest airport is Teesside International Airport which is less than ten miles away from the town.

It is interesting to note that Middlesbrough - once just a small farmstead - did not expand until the early nineteenth century, due to the innovative Quaker and local man, Joseph Pease who effectively bought Middlesbrough and from then on, the town flourished. Many skilled trades people were attracted to the area and set up home here.

Once best known for coal, ship building and iron and steel then bridge constructions and chemicals, Middlesbrough has recently been named as one of the best places to invest within Europe. There has been huge investments within the Tees Valley region, notably Middlesbrough and main sectors for employment are within advanced manufacturing, digital, maritime and logistics and retail, leisure and hospitality.

The importance of the River Tees can not be overlooked as it has always played an integral part in regards to the economy. Teesport, a deep sea complex, handles millions of tonnes of imports and exports each year and the Port of Middlesbrough which is based from Riverside Park on the banks of the Tees, provides freight logistics to many divisions. TeesAMP is a successful and desirable multi million advanced manufacturing park which houses some of the most globally prestigious names and is only a mile from Middlesbrough’s centre.

Do not be mistaken in thinking that Middlesbrough has lost its rich heritage due to its commitment to innovation and dynamic flair for success as Middlesbrough’s Historic Quarter is a designated Conservation Area and the town has preserved many reminders of its history.

Middlesbrough is less than five miles from the coastline, the nearest being Redcar which has been used as the setting for a major film when it was transformed into a very impressive replication of Dunkirk. As well as the many unique and impressive beaches within easy reach of the town, some of the top attractions include Roseberry Topping from which the views are quite spectacular, the historic Ormesby Hall and Captain Cook’s birthplace museum.

The ever popular Teesside University has its main campus in Middlesbrough and has been placed in the top 100 universities since 2019.

The latest government data suggests that the price of an average property in Middlesbrough will cost you less than £150,00, despite prices having increased recently. Middlesbrough certainly has much to be proud of. As well as substantially low property prices, close proximity to the North Yorkshire Moors and a range of stunning coastlines, you will also find the locals to be extremely friendly and genuine.
