Amazing Things to See and Do in Middlesbrough With Your Electric Vehicle

Middlesbrough on girder

Middlesbrough marks the point where the North East meets North Yorkshire. Whilst it may not be the first location you think of when you consider towns in the North East of England, we’re sure you won’t want to miss out on a visit. Once you’ve hired your electric car from EVision Durham, head 45 minutes south and discover a hidden gem.

Try a Parmo 

The chicken parmo is a true Middlesbrough delicacy. In fact, people in the North East all agree that the best parmos in the world are served in Middlesbrough. For those who aren’t sure what a parmo is, picture breaded chicken topped with creamy béchamel sauce and cheddar cheese, served with chips and salad on the side. When searching for the best parmo in Middlesbrough, the general rule of thumb is “the closer to a TS1 postcode, the better”. There will be an overwhelming amount of choice, so we’re incredibly grateful to blogger The Northernist, who has compiled a guide of all of the best parmo restaurants in Teesside. 


Riverside Stadium

One thing that residents of Middlesbrough take real pride in is their football team. Middlesbrough FC reside in the centre of town at Riverside Stadium. Since opening in 1995, the stadium has been the venue of many incredible things, including the first and only warm-up match for Team GBs football team during the 2012 Olympics. You can book a tour of the stadium, or even bag yourself tickets to a game.

Preston Park

For a day out that’s perfect for the family, give Preston Park a try. Here, you’ll find everything from a Victorian street, to amazing outdoor spaces and a huge adventure playground. There is something for everyone at Preston Park, including a wide range of galleries that celebrate the history of Middlesbrough and Stockton. You can see and understand how life and industry has changed over the last 200 years for these North East towns.

Head to the Beach

Middlesbrough boasts two incredible beaches; Redcar and Saltburn. Saltburn beach is home to the only remaining pleasure pier on the whole North East and Yorkshire coast. The Victorian promenade extends 200 metres out to sea! At Redcar beach, you can enjoy a visit to see the world’s oldest surviving lifeboat. You can also venture 80ft into the air, to the top of Redcar Beacon, for a birds-eye view of the seafront. As with every trip to the seaside, make sure you get yourself some fish and chips and, of course, a lemon top ice cream.


Free activities

There are a plethora of free activities in Middlesbrough, ranging from a day out in the park, to heading to a museum. If you have a keen interest in art, why not follow the Tees Sculpture Trail? Five of the pieces are located in Middlesbrough. The sculptures are scattered across the town, and some will take more searching than others. You can even venture out of Middlesbrough to the neighbouring towns of Stockton and Darlington, to search for even more!
