Café Walks

Autumn is one of the best times to enjoy walking – the fresh air helps to wake you up and takes stress away, and the changing colours offer fantastic views. To help you make the most of it, we’ve made these four walking routes through the most scenic, leafy areas in Stockton-on-Tees.

Once you’ve finished the walk, there’s nothing better than putting your feet up and enjoying a well-earned cuppa, so we’ve teamed up with some of Stockton’s best cafés to offer 25% off all hot drinks for people who’ve been on the walk! All you need to do is answer the question in the walk page to reveal your discount code.
