What Is There To Do In Yarm?

Described by tourists and visitors as ‘The most romantic town in northern England’. Yarm possesses a beautiful riverside walk that indulges you in the history of the town. The walk will take you along the River Tees and to the iconic bridge.

The path is named after a tomb that dates back to the 15th century and its original occupants – a man and a woman whose origin remains a mystery to this day – are known as the True Lovers.

Yarm has a wide range of shops, cafes, and restaurants in the high street. It is popular with families due to excellent schooling in both state and private sectors. There are open park spaces at Preston Park, easy access to the A19, Darlington train station and Durham Tees Valley airport.

Yarm is an excellent place to call home. In fact, it’s arguably the most picturesque town in Teeside.

If you’re a lover of animals, more specifically alpacas then Yarm is right up your street. Situated on the outskirts and in a lovely area of 11 acres live a family run farm of alpacas, 37 to be precise. What else could you wish for?
