Attraction details
Owner description: The Tees Transporter Bridge has played an important role in the area's history for over a century and continues to Provide an important and unique crossing over the River Tees. In recent years the Transporter has emerged as a leading historic visitor attraction and is one of the UK's major sites for extreme sports including abseils, bungee jumps and zipslides. In 2011 to mark the Bridge's centenary the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) confirmed a £2.6m award for refurbishment and upgrade work to the Tees Transporter Bridge. The HLF supported Tees Transporter Bridge Visitor Experience Project included the installation of a glass viewing lift to provide improved access to the upper walkway, renovation of the gondola, replacement of the Bridge's motors and the development of state-of-the-art visitor facilities and resources.

Wonderful bridge,well worth a trip across if you are in middlesbrough.Does'nt take long to cross but enjoyable as it is only one of 3 in the world.You can climb the steps and walk across the top if you are fit enough and not scared of heights,it's lit up at night and can be seen from miles away.
You can view the bridge from anywhere but there is a charge to cross.

One of the best bridges in the world. Take a trip across the water, visit the museum or go to the top in the gondola. This is a must visit when coming to the north east.

Taking a trip across the river Tees is a unique experience using this bridge. It does not take long and is something you can not do anywhere else in England. There is a charge for the crossing, either by car or per person if walking. There is a small museum at the Middlesbrough side of the bridge giving all the statistics. The bridge is used throughout the week but depends on the weather. You used to be able to walk right across the top but this has been stopped. However they do organise bungie jumps from the top for charity on a weekend.

As a visitor to Middlesbrough dont leave without a trip across the bridge for a unique experience. At very least drive right up to it and let it intimidate you, that said you can see it from most parts of Middlesbrough if you dont have time
