As a Motability car driver and mobility scooter user any advice on what do see and do within about an hour's drive of Hartlepool would be much appreciated. Want to add to my collection of bridges crossed on the scooter so Middlesbrough transporter bridge is already on the to-do list !!

Looking forward to a nice peaceful week away.

Best wishes.

    Hi all…..just arrived back after a fantastic week based at the Premier Inn on the quayside with marina views on 3 sides. Must be the best Premier Inn in the country..perfect disabled facilities in room 39.   Maritime museum and HMS Trincomalee 5 minute walk away.  Restaurants of all types abound in the area..we loved the Baan Thai only minutes away near the station.  The history and regeneration in this area has been beautifully moulded to remember the now long gone industrial past.  We spent days in Durham with its hills and cobbles, Whitby because we love the place... Beamish open air museum, Stockton for its market, the list is endless.  Yes I did get over the Transporter Bridge as well.  Also included Gateshead Millennium Bridge on the way home !

    We were blessed with great weather all week and honestly would recommend this area to anyone wanting to explore the North East part of England.  Beware the cobbles !!

    Best wishes.
