Welcome to Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough has a reputation for being friendly, warm, and welcoming, and for offering everybody a real sense of community. We have lots of activities all year long that celebrate our cultural diversity, and we really try to get the people of our town involved in telling us what they like and don’t like. We hope that the following information will make you feel welcomed and home.
