On a road trip around the North East & West coasts going across the Tees at the transporter bridge was a highlight - well worth a visit to see something so extraordinary.

Whilst it is still one of the bigger attractions of Middlesbrough (pun intended). It's still undergoing maintenance, and has been for the last year and a half. Be sure to plan around this whilst arranging any trips out. I would much rather see it maintained, opposed to simply pulling it down, and placing a stationary bridge there. It's a great... More

Middlesbrough has the advantage of having this beautiful 1911-built structure spanning the banks of the Tees, proudly welcoming its inhabitants home. It is one of a handful of working transporter bridges in the world. This bridge is well worth a visit, especially if you get a chance to speak to one of the staff about its workings, its value and...

steeped in history hard work endurance going through 2 world wars hit by German bombs, this main crossing of the River Tees connecting North and South bank, Middlesbrough and Port Clarence has only ever stopped due to high winds or maintenance, something of a novelty now this transporter bridge is what makes Teesside great, a must see for any visitor

Good bridge in all but it's not open as regularly as we'd wish and can be a bit of an eye sore up close in my opinion. The design is good but the actual bridge required some maintenance and a fresh coat of paint.

We visited in July 2014 and the bridge was closed for repairs. We had been looking forward to the visit but had to be satisfied with a very small and basic museum. Opened it would probably have been a unique experience
