Coach Tours - Hartlepool Minibus
Located on the River Tees, in the northeast of England, Stockton-On-Tees is a town and port that is spread across both County Durham and North Yorkshire. This makes the perfect destination to explore with Hartlepool Minibus, which come with a designated driver who will take care of you and your group throughout the day. Save yourself the stress of driving and parking and treat your loved ones to an exciting day out.
The town's history can be traced back to Anglo-Saxon times, but more significant development occurred in the 12th century with the creation of Stockton Manor. Today, Stockton-On-Tees is known for its ship-repairing, steel and chemical industries. While not essentially a tourist destination, the town offers parks, museums and shopping as well as being in close proximity to some scenic English countryside.
Located in the 19th century built hall, Preston Hall offers visitors displays themed around local social history including arms, armour, toys and costumes as well as a reconstruction of a classic Victorian street, complete with working craftspeople. Preston Hall is set in 110 acres of picturesque parkland which visitors can take the time to explore. Meanwhile, at the Green Dragon Museum visitors will find an eclectic mix of Stockton history and modern photographic displays.
Stockton-On-Tees is home to a large number of parks and open spaces that are ideal for exploring or relaxing in and they can be reached very easily with Hartlepool Minibus. Previously called Castle Eden Walkway, Wynyard Woodland Park is a walker's haven offering miles of footpaths and countless circular walking trails. The park has a Visitor Centre that is housed in the railway station, once a significant feature of the area. The park also has an observatory where astronomy fans can indulge their passions. Other parks in the area worthy of mention include Billingham Beck Valley Country Park and Cowpens Begley Woodland.
