Middlesbrough is an historic industrial mining and steel town as well as Captain Cook's birthplace. It is close to the North York Moors, so is an ideal base for visiting this beautiful area. Get a great deal on car rental in Middlesbrough and make the most of your time in the north of England.

It is worth considering car hire; Middlesbrough is a great base from which to visit some of the highlights of the region...

There are plenty of things to see in the town as well as some interesting local cuisine. Parmo, a local deep-fried delicacy, is particularly recommended as something for visitors to try.

Middlesbrough has seen great deal of regeneration recently, such as Middlehaven Waterfront, an award-winning development with shops, bars, hotels and homes on the former docks. Centre Square is another example, as the modernised square now hosts many live-music and big-screen events. It is also home to the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, which is an innovative new gallery.

Middlesbrough's most iconic sight is the Transporter Bridge. Painted bright blue, it carries cars and people across the River Tees and Middlesbrough car hire provides the perfect opportunity to cross this amazing bridge. A more modern symbol of the town is the Psyche Department Store. Open since 1982, it has won the 'best store of the year' award several times.

A visit to the historic Middlesbrough Football Club is also interesting as it gives an insight into the town's passion for the game. Younger visitors to Middlesbrough might enjoy Prissick Skating Plaza, which welcomes skateboarders, inline skaters and BMX riders.

The town is only 14 miles from Durham Tees Valley Airport (MME), making it an ideal place to rent a car in Middlesbrough. You can collect your rented vehicle at one of the convenient locations in and around downtown Middlesbrough.
