Half term has just got a little easier as Stagecoach North East brings its value for money travel offer once again for families in Teesside and Hartlepool to enjoy a cheaper day out around the region.

The local bus operator is helping to keep the young ones happy with lots of activities and entertainment on offer across the Tees Valley, such as catching a film at Cineworld in Middlesbrough, skating at Billingham Forum, seeing the wildlife at Saltholme Wildlife Reserve or getting all at sea with the Hartlepool Maritime Experience.

There are many indoor and outdoor events and activities taking place around Hartlepool and Teesside and more information can be found at, and

Up to two children aged under 16 can travel for just ten pence when they board with a full paying adult, and up to four under five year olds can travel for free. All tickets are available from the driver onboard local Stagecoach North East services.

There are so many things to see and do, with movies, shopping, sports and leisure activities on our doorstep, and this great value ticket means families can have an affordable day out over half term without the hassle of driving or parking.”
