Tees Barrage White Water Course
THE HOME OF ADVENTURE IN THE HEART OF THE NORTH EAST
Tees Barrage is a centre of activity and a top place to go in the North East for outdoor adventure.
Found on the River Tees between Stockton and Middlesbrough, we’re perfect for days out with family and friends.
Our watersports facilities and activities are world-class. Designed to deliver an amazing real-life rapid river experience, every time on your water feels new and exciting. Here, you can enjoy: bell boating, paddlesports, raft building, powerboat trips, family rafting, white water rafting, and stand-up paddleboarding. Try these as a fun one-off, book them for a hilarious group visit, or develop skills and enroll on a course delivered by qualified coaches.
Finding things to do in the North East that kids and adults both enjoy is easy at Tees Barrage. Next to our 300-metre white water course, you also find the UK’s largest climbing adventure course — Air Trail. Swinging bridges, balancing beams and cargo nets soaring above the River Tees makes for an excellent day out in Teesside. Plus, everyone can experience it; from young families and work colleagues to classmates and groups of friends.
NATURE, CYCLING, WALKING, AND FOOD
Tees Barrage isn’t all fast sports and daring climbs. On top of this, we’re surrounded by thriving wildlife for the perfect setting to take photos and explore with a relaxing bike ride. Take long walks with your dog, have picnics along the river, visit the nearby nature reserve, and taste fresh coffee and cake at The Barrage Cafe.
With more than 40 years of experience, our friendly team is equipped to deliver personalised and action-packed birthday parties, team building activities, stag and hen dos, and school and education visits. We cater for people of all abilities (aged eight and over). And, we give you all the kit and training you need to enjoy our facilities. One of the many reasons that we’re such a handy choice for a day out in Teesside!
