There’s lots of gifts and craft stores too perfect for those last minute stocking fillers. Catch the bus there and spend your time queuing for a mulled wine rather than a car parking space!

Christmas Shopping

Arriva can take you into the heart Stockton, a few steps away from Wellington square, Stockton’s newest shopping development with over 40 stores! Situated at the top of the famous high street it is close to all existing shops and amenities. Stockton High Street is home to one of the largest markets in the UK including over 150 different stalls. The markets are held every Wednesday & Saturday with a smaller one each Friday. Rainy day? Not to worry -  Castlegate Shopping Centre  is Stockton-On-Tees’ largest covered shopping centre housing a variety of stores from home to fashion to electronics. You will also be spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat, drink and relax during your visit with an exciting choice of cafés and restaurants.

 Days / Nights out with friends

We all have to tighten our purse strings around this time year, buying gifts, meals out, drinks after work can be a real expense– so saving those extra pennies is important, and Arriva can help! Did you know some of our services run until after 11pm from Stockton, so no need to folk out on taxi fares! Our day tickets offer unlimited travel from the first bus to the last, so why not leave the car at home catch the bus into work and back home after your big night out. You drink, we drive!
