Travelling around Yarm
Yarm is located in the county of North Yorkshire on the East Coast of England. Lying on the south bank of the River Tees, this pleasant market town is full of old-world charm, with cobbled streets, scenic walks and sumptuous Georgian architecture. With the beautiful North Sea coast just a few miles away, a stunning 18th-century clock tower and the remarkable Yarm viaduct spanning the River Tees, there’s plenty to admire in this idyllic northern town.
Yarm has excellent road and rail links and Arriva buses operate in the area, providing services in and around the town centre, as well as routes to nearby towns and villages.
Voted ‘best high street’ in a recent BBC poll, Yarm’s historic thoroughfare is ideal for a bit of retail therapy. With cobbled parking areas and sublime Georgian-style shopfronts, you’ll be able to choose from a wonderful mix of independent boutiques and high-street retailers.
Lying at the edge of the North York Moors, Yarm is the perfect staging post to explore some of Yorkshire’s natural beauty, with rolling hills, dry-stone walls and rugged moorland. For a fun family day out, why not visit the local alpaca farm; you’ll get to mingle with the animals in a beautiful rural setting, lead them on a riverside walk and take in some stunning views of Leven Valley.
If you’re feeling peckish, why not grab a bite at one of Yarm’s cafés and bistros, which offer a unique blend of Italian delicacies and locally-sourced seafood. In the evening, have a drink at one of the local pubs or head down to The Keys nightclub for cocktails, music and dancing.
