Trains to Middlesborough arrive right in the heart of this modern city. The station itself opened in 1877, and although the building has undergone extensive refurbishment, the original Victorian ironwork designed by 19th-century architect William Peachey can still be seen at either end of the platforms. In the Town Hall Square, a short distance from the station, you’ll find further nods to the town’s industrial heritage. The statue of John Vaughan, a founding father of the iron industry on Teesside and Middlesborough Mayor in the 1850s, has bronze plaques on its base depicting a sailing ship, ironworks and an early locomotive. The Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA) is a short walk from the station and is housed in a £14.2 million building designed by Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects. The Dorman Museum is also close by with permanent collections covering natural history, ornithology and archaeology.
