Countryside and coast on the doorstep; a vibrant community of creative and independent businesses; growing industry and innovative emerging sectors; a friendly, upbeat Northern nature and the perfect location from which to explore the neighbouring beauty of the North East and Yorkshire are just a few reasons why it’s great to call the Tees Valley home.


Coast and Country

Tees Valley offers a fantastic quality of life to balance with a successful career. Some of the UK’s most scenic coastline and countryside are just a short commute out of the bustling town centres – providing the perfect escape after a hard day at the office.

Independent lifestyle

Nestled between County Durham and North Yorkshire, the Tees Valley is made up of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees.

The region has a thriving independent scene, with bars, pubs and restaurants that make the ideal local. Baker and Bedford Streets in Middlesbrough plus Yarm, Darlington and Saltburn offer café and coffee culture, as well as unique shops and markets.

Love the outdoors

If you love the outdoors, then the Tees Valley is a great location for you. You can enjoy water sports along the River Tees or at the coast. Cycle and hike in Guisborough Woods, across the North York Moors and along coastal paths around Saltburn, while taking in the stunning views of the region. All which provide easy access to the rest of the country with national rail and road links and a growing Teesside International Airport.

Short Breaks

The Tees Valley provides easy access to the rest of the country and international hubs such as London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol, with weekends away, short breaks and summer holidays also within easy reach from our local Teesside International Airport.

Country and coastal retreats are close-by in Northumberland, Durham, Barnard Castle, Richmond, Saltburn, Staithes and Whitby and city stopovers in London, Edinburgh and Manchester are a relaxing two-and-a-half-hour train journey away. Newcastle, York, Leeds and the Lake District are also all within an hour’s drive.

The perfect base

From town centre living in walking distance to work and accessible village life in picturesque locations to grand spaces for affordable prices and a range of great things to do on your doorstep – the Tees Valley is the perfect Northern base.
