My Husband and I visited Middlesbrough for the first time so we thought we would got to the tourist information centre. We could see no road signs directing us to the centre so went into the Citizen Advise Bureau who told us there was no Information centre in Middlesbrough but the library might be able to help us. We had to keep asking directions but eventually found the library where we were told to go to the Town Hall on reaching there we were told we wanted the Box Office. So off we go again and eventually found the information centre but when we told them what trouble we had finding the place the woman behind the desk laughed, which was very annoying. After looking at the leaflets we asked if they had information on the Transporter Bridge which we knew was shut but thought it would be interesting to read about it. After turning all the cupboards and drawers out they produced a used sheet which had been stuck on the wall. Then asked did they sell postcards which they did but they were stuck on a board behind the desk, what they were hidden away for I really don't know. As a tourist we were made very unwelcome.
