About Yarm

Yarm has a pretty position on the bank of the River Tees, with the oldest part of the town nestled into a loop of the river. The high street has many Georgian buildings and cobbled streets, which certainly add to the town’s overall appeal. The best places to stay in Yarm tend to be charming country house hotels just outside of the town (that way you’re right in amongst the best of the scenery), though there's plenty of the usual pubs with rooms or B&Bs too.

The town’s rather spectacular railway viaduct, with its 43 arches, adds a lot to the scene. Yarm also has some charming woodland, with ash, sycamore and lime trees predominantly.

There is a regular monthly Farmer’s Market in the town centre. But probably most importantly for visitors, Yarm is close to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Durham Cathedral, the Darlington Railway Museum and Barnard Castle.

What Not To Miss

  • The whole family will love a trip to Cluedini, where you're locked in a room for an hour with only your wits and deductive skills to get you out. Work through all the puzzles before the hour's up... or else!
  • If you fancy a night out on the town then head along to The Keys Nightclub, boasting a wonderful atmosphere and splendid cocktails.
  • If you're into your pub lunches then the George & Dragon's the place for you. Offering delicious food and a wide range of beers without breaking the bank, it's a lovely spot.
  • Those seeking something more action-packed should head over to Battlezone Paintball and get involved with the variety of games offered. Great for groups.
