Here are some ideas for making the most of what is on your doorstep in 2020.

Get Outdoors

We are lucky to be spoilt with many great outdoor spaces in Tees Valley.

Being outdoors is not only a great family day out, but it has also never felt so good to be outside post-lockdown.

Enjoy some fresh air and adventure by heading to Guisborough Forest and Walkway, take the bikes, or enjoy the walk through the archways of trees, stop to take on the various adventure courses or spot the sculptures along the route.

If you prefer a day at the seaside you are sure to enjoy a beach day in Tees Valley. Along the dramatic coastline you will find secluded sandy beaches at Marske and Skinningrove, pretty Victorian seaside towns such as Saltburn-by-the-Sea, colourful beach huts at Seaton Carew, surf and all the seaside essentials you need including fish and chips and a Tees Valley famous lemon top ice cream.
