The large north-east town of Middlesbrough has a number of exciting attractions, perfect for family days out.
The area prides itself on sport, art and culture. The Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art - which once featured on the BBC motoring programme Top Gear - is totally free and offers an interactive and immersive day out.
The Dorman Museum has eight permanent galleries and two temporary ones, giving a fresh experience on every visit.
Meanwhile, Middlesbrough Sports Village boasts outdoor football pitches and indoor activities such as badminton and table tennis, as well as a soft play area for kids up to 12 years old and a skate and BMX park for teenagers.
If wielding a club is more your thing, check out Stokesley Golf Range - it also has a 12 holes for £2 offer on its minigolf and 9 holes for £3 on its footgolf.
Teesside Karting Centre has a brilliant circuit and special karts for kids, with full tuition for first-timers. Drivers must be eight years or older and at least 4ft 6in tall.
