Football Tourist's Guide to Middlesbrough

Post by LeeCharles »

Hi everyone

Blackpool fan here in peace hope you don't mind me posting this here. My partner Jane produces the Blackpool Fanzine and she also works with me on my YouTube channel, this year we are travelling to every away game to film our Football Tourist's Guide to give other fans ideas of where to go, things to do and where to stay if you are similar to us and enjoy making a bit of a weekend of your away trips.

It was Jane's birthday for our Middlesbrough trip so we decided to stay over in Whitby which we can really recommend. Anyhow if you are going to the Middlesbrough game a week on Saturday and are thinking about making a weekend of it feel free to take a look at our video for some ideas, hope you enjoy it.

We will be coming down to Peterborough to film there as well so if you have any ideas for touristy things that we can do, pubs we can check out? nice places to eat as Jane also reviews food, beer and the match on her blog she especially likes craft beers her blog can be read at www.janestuart.co.uk

A couple of micro pubs which are well worth a visit are The Wonky Donkey (5 mins from the ground) or the Bumble Inn (5 mins from the station). A little out of town is the Frothblowers (on number 1 bus route) in Werrington, which is Cambridgeshire CAMRA pub of the year.

What about Charters or is that classed as a home pub

Another must for away fans in my neck of the woods, Bedminster Cricket club.

For those coming by train, come off the platform through the main exit, pass the ticket office, go straight on, when you get past the row of coffee shops, in the corner to the left is a Wetherspoon called The Knights’ Templar, within 100 yards of there is a landing stage where you can catch a water taxi https://www.greatwestway.co.uk/see-and- ... s-p1185931 they go all the way around the harbour, getting off at The SS Great Britain, you are very close to a back street cider house called The Orchard https://www.orchardinn.co.uk/ where they serve scrumpy straight from the barrel. From here you are less that half a mile from the away end, (follow the crowd)

An interesting thread that started off as useful to Posh fans and has changed to being useful to Middlesbrough fans, for when they come to visit us on Saturday April 2nd.

p.s. There is only one 'boro' and that is 'Peterborough' that we 'Poshies' use and not that weird spelling of 'brough' that the 'Smoggies' or 'Geordies' use. :D

It is actually a request from Blackpool fans who are visiting in December but you are absolutely right there is only one Boro, and although it is pushing it a bit for this forum, I think any chance to promote the independent pubs of our city is all to the good. :comeon:
