Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Big plans for great experiences


yarm high street

One of the Borough's smallest towns, Yarm is a historic and picturesque town on the south bank of the River Tees.

With its olde worlde charm and traditional, cobbled high street, Yarm is the perfect setting for a spot of retail therapy. And you won't go hungry with its excellent selection of places to eat out, ranging from traditional pub food, to quality formal dining. Listed as one of the top 50 high streets in the country in 2012.

Quaint passageways run off the High Street down to the river, where you can stroll the riverbanks. Yarm fair is held every year in the high street in the third week in October. It starts on the Tuesday evening and last until Saturday night. Once a commercial fair that traded in cheese and livestock, is now primarily a fun fair bringing fun for all the family.

Visit the Yarm Town Council website for further information.
