Middlesbrough (/ˈmɪdəlzbrə/ (listen) MID-əlz-brə) is a large town in North Yorkshire, England. It is on the River Tees's southern bank, west of Redcar and east of Stockton-on-Tees. The Borough of Middlesbrough is governed from the town.
Until the early 1800s, the area was rural farming land. By 1830, a new town and port had begun to be developed, driven by the coal industry and later ironworks. Steel production and ship building began in the late 1800s, and remained associated with the town until post-industrial decline occurred in the late twentieth century. Trade, notably through ports, and digital enterprise sectors contemporarily contribute to the local economy. Teesside University is also based in the town.
Erimus ("We shall be" in Latin), the town's motto, reflects Fuimus ("We have been") of the Norman/Scottish Bruce clan, the mediaeval lords of Cleveland. The town's coat of arms is an azure (blue) lion, from the Bruce family arms, a star (from Captain James Cook's arms) and two ships representing shipbuilding and maritime trade.
In 1853, the town received its Royal Charter of Incorporation. In 1889, the North Riding of Yorkshire became an administrative county, the town's municipal borough also became a county borough. From 1968 until 1974, boroughs and parishes from County Durham and the North Riding of Yorkshire formed the County Borough of Teesside. Cleveland non-metropolitan county was created in 1974, this was until 1996 when the Middlesbrough Borough Council (now known as Middlesbrough Council) became a unitary authority in North Yorkshire. The authority forms part of the Tees Valley Combined Authority.
The borough had an estimated population of 140,980 in 2019, the 155th most populous district of England. At the 2011 census, the Middlesbrough subdivision of the Teesside built-up area had a population of 174,700, the population is larger due to an area outside the council area known as Greater Eston. The built-up area, of which Middlesbrough forms the largest part, had a population of 376,633.
Guisborough is a town in North Yorkshire, England; it's a market town and commuter district for Middlesbrough and Redcar. The town itself had a population of 7662 in 2011; with outlying villages this was 17,777. From 1974 to 1996 it was part of a new county, Cleveland; this was then abolished and Guisborough was re-assigned to North Yorkshire. The difference is nominal since it's part of Redcar & Cleveland unitary authority and not governed by a County Council.
The elaborate Guisborough Helmet, now in the British Museum, indicates Roman settlement, but the town grew up in the Middle Ages around the Priory - this is nowadays the main visitor attraction. Guisborough is also on the edge of the North York Moors, a sharp edge indeed, with cliffs rising just south of town. For long-distance routes, see Middlesbrough, which is on the London - Newcastle - Edinburgh main railway line. Guisborough doesn't have a railway.
Arriva Bus 5 runs hourly from Middlesbrough to Guisborough, 40 min. As X93 it continues south to Whitby and Scarborough. Don't take Bus X4 from Middlesbrough towards Whitby, as this follows the coast through Redcar and doesn't run via Guisborough.
By road from the south, leave A1(M) for A19 then take A172 onto A171.
Two hours free parking is available on the high street, though you need to buy a parking disc from local shops. There is ample street parking, as well as a coach and car park on Rectory Lane. Town is compact and walkable, but you need wheels to explore the moors. Also, Redcar (for the races) and Saltburn-by-the-Sea are only five miles away, ten minutes by car, but with poor public transport links - there is an hourly bus between Guisborough and Redcar (number 81) or more frequent connections are possible by travelling into Middlesbrough and out again.
The only market town in the 554 square miles of the North York Moors National Park, Helmsley is full of history, character and stunning architecture (including 51 listed buildings) making it a great place to visit – and an even better place to live and work! Helmsley has everything you’d expect in a quintessentially English market town: a vibrant market square, independent, specialist shops, excellent places to eat and drink, an imposing castle, friendly locals, a babbling brook, beautiful surrounding countryside… but that’s not all! It also has a walled garden, bird of prey centre, microbrewery, open air swimming pool, luxury spa, nature reserve, galleries and an arts centre. Two abbey ruins, Michelin-starred restaurants, and the North York Moors National Park are on the doorstep – enough to keep you busy for days and days! If you’re only visiting for a few hours, you’ll definitely have to prioritise… so why not stay over? The oldest surviving house in Helmsley is Canon’s Garth, the vicarage. The Norman castle, dating back over 900 years, evolved over the centuries, from a mighty medieval fortress to a luxurious Tudor mansion, to a Civil War stronghold and a romantic Victorian ruin. It is open all year round for visitors to enjoy, under the care of English Heritage. The Walled Gardens also enjoy a historic past, tracing their roots back to 1759. Well worth a visit is Helmsley’s All Saints’ Church, dating back to the 12th Century, which has stunning and unusual frescos which are more than 100 years old, and Mouseman mice to spot. Helmsley is where the North York Moors National Park meets the Howardian Hills. It’s where the Cleveland Way meets the Ebor Way and the Inn Way. It’s where the valleys of Bilsdale and Ryedale leave the moorland and meet the flat Vale of Pickering… and it’s where countless friends and family meet to enjoy Helmsley’s cosy cafés, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants, shops and attractions.
It’s perfect for a family get together or celebration, and a spectacular place to get married, with venues as diverse as a stately home, a walled garden or beautiful country hotels. The town’s independent businesses can also help with bespoke wedding rings, creative cakes and breathtaking floral displays, along with many of the other touches which make the day really special.
