Anyone who thinks Stockton on Tees is a less than desirable place should think again. This National Centre for White Water Rafting is lovely just to walk around and enjoy. Stockton has a plethora of bridges and the newest, the Infinity Bridge, can be seen from here. From scientific interest coming from the Archimedes Screw design for powering the water... More

We took a walk round the Tees Barrage on a Sunday morning after being out the night before and it was the perfect pick me up. We enjoyed the walk round the centre, spotting seals and watching some canoeists in the rapids. Would confirm the comments from the previous person about the Beefeater, we walked out when we saw what... More

Tees Barrage is a wonderful place and is easy to access by vehicles, bikes or even walking if you live nearby. Most people go for water-sports such as White Water Rafting or Canoeing. It's a great day out though just watching them going round in the amazingly set out water course.After the day out you'll probably spot the over-priced, expensive... More

Hi Jacob Thanks for visiting the centre and for your valuable feedback. Tees Barrage really is a great place to visit whether you’re participating in watersports or simply enjoying a stroll around the site. It’s great to hear the course re-development is also appreciated by visitors. The pub/restaurant you may be referring to is the Beefeater restaurant - The Talpore,... More

What a lovely experience to have a superb light lunch/afternoon tea sitting on the balcony overlooking the river with friends. The food could not be faulted, fresh tasty sandwiches, quiche and scotch egg. The home-made scones and cakes were delicious. I have an allergy to chocolate but that was not a problem to the staff - another cake was brought... More

Went to Tees Barrage this weekend for their white water course. It was excellent. I am a reasonable standard kayaker, getting back into the sport after a few years out. The course is quite demanding, but you always feel safe and there is plenty of hello on hand. The short course with its large drop at the end is difficult,... More

The formation of the barrage has created an area for gentle riverside walks both upstream to Stockton or downstream towards Middlesbrough. You also have a great chance of seeing the seals catching fish and generally playing around just downstream of the barrage itself. The cafe within the canoeing/outdoor centre serves snacks and hot and cold drinks. There is plenty of... More
