A fun-filled family day out

As one of the largest civil engineering projects in the UK at the time, the Tees Barrage was built in 1995. A monument to British engineering, it comprises a river barrage, road bridge, footbridge, barge lock, fish pass and white water course. If you are a water-loving thrill seeker looking for a rush, you will find it here: canoeing, windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, powerboat racing and white water rafting are just some of the water-bourne treats on offer here. There is also a Health & Fitness Club, Beefeater restaurant, hotel and caravan site.
