Hi my twin boys have been coming here during school holidays for the past four years and I have got to say how excellent the paddle days are arranged for children from eight years old. They provide wet suits and life jackets. All the staff go the extra mile looking after the children's interests at heart. It gives children a... More

I booked my son's 12th Birthday Party. There are a number of options available and we chose canoeing. The children were fully kitted out with wetsuits and safety equipment. I quick teambuilding exercise and then off out on the water. I had presumed they would just stay in the little basin but no, off up the river they went while... More

Tees Barrage is a great place to escape the crowds and have a relaxing walk around. You can walk along the side of the Tees towards Middlesbrough Town Centre and Newport Bridge. The last time I visited there was Seals clearly visible in the river. The cafe is also a good place to sit and relax whilst enjoying a drink... More

Seems like a fantastic place and something I haven't seen anywhere else. Very nice area for a good walk with my dog and a jog for my wife. Wish I could do water sports!

I must say that I wasn't entirely sure what to expect of this place and was pleasantly surprised to find the water sports course and the well designed and maintained pathways and areas of grassland. Unfortunately the canoe salom course was't being used when we came but it is easy to see that it would be fun to watch it... More

4 of us went to the Barrage on a bitterly cold afternoon. The sun was bright and the river looked lovely. There was a fire crew practising rescue procedure - fascinating. A lovely place to have an interesting flat walk on excellent paths. Afterwards we went in the River View Cafe for afternoon tea. The food was all home made... More

We attended here for a canoe slalom competition in early september 2014. It was the canoe slalom junior championships. My daughter and stepson were competing. We found the set up very good although we didn't see many of Tees Barrage about. I suppose they were busy! The course itself was excellent and clean! The kids did well and definately will... More

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
