Middlesbrough in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... has a bad reputation. They've done a lot to try and turn it around in the last few years with the additon of the MIMA gallery and the free music festival they now host in the city centre every year, which is great fun. There are plenty of restaurants and shops, with two main shopping centres and plenty of little local owned and run shops to give it a nice student vibe. The travel links could perhaps be better improved, but there is a train station, regular buses and coaches and is accessible from Durham Airport. The quality of houses in middlesbrough is slowly being regenerated by the council, knocking down the old terraces and starting... more

I lived in Middlesbrough for a year or so when my (now ex) boyfriend was studying at the University there. It's not a bad town, contrary to popular opinion - it just has a bad reputation.

~~Middlesbrough: A beginners guide~~ Like many of those who have written an opinion on Middlesbrough, I have lived in Middlesbrough all my life - and boy, do I wish I hadn't had that misfortune! It's true that the town centre can be a good place to shop - all the shops are together, all the pubs are there, and there's plenty of variety; especially now, with Middlesbrough's new "updated" image - we now have trendy shops that we never had before - a virgin megastore, a schuh, designer shops, etc. There is quite an extensive and interesting history to Middlesbrough, but I'm only going to give you some basics here, otherwise you would be ...

I have lived in Middlesbrough all my life and I quite like living here despite what most people think. Middlesbrough isnt massive but everything you need is in one place. Shops, parks, cinema, restaurants, car parking, train and bus station and pretty good night life. I have to admit there are better places to shop in the north east but Middlesbrough has many shops for all kind of tastes. What really gets me about M,bro is the fact that it has 4 different shopping centres in 1 minutes walking distance of each other. This means we have 2 WHSmiths, 2 Internationales, 2 Principles, 2 Barretts, 2 Bay Trading etc etc. If only they could think of ... Read the complete review

As there are no venues listed in the Nightclubs category and as I wanted to consider other aspects besides clubs, I felt this opinion should go here. Firstly, Middlesbrough is not one of the major places you would think of when looking for somewhere to go on a night out. However, there are some good places if you know where to look. The Empire in the centre of Middlesbrough is the town's biggest and best nightclub. Once a theatre amongst its many incarnations, it is now one of the most popular nightclubs in the region if not the North. You will find it listed in the Guide (published with the Guardian) every Saturday for its Sugershack nights, which ... Read the complete review

Well - I was born in Eston - which I still believe is a part of Middlesbrough. I now live in a small town in Middlesbrough which I have lived ever since. middlesbrough - with it being the most industrialised place in the country with polutioneverywhere is still my home and I have learned to like living here. In the town centre - theres many shops but one inparticular (not really a shop - its a café) is called Café Pronto in which they serve the best coffee around, not to mention the best Hot mixed rolls. Bacon and cheese - YUM - my favorite but best of all the company you get in there is excellent. So if you live here - visit CAFÉ PRONTO on Borough Road or if you're . Read the complete review
