Where the hell is Base Camp?!
We’re tucked away in Exchange Square just two minutes walk from Middlesbrough Railway Station. We are in the town’s original Victorian Post Office which was the very centre of Middlesbrough – until some bright spark in the 1960s decided to build the A66 right through the beating heart of the town.
To find us, if you’re coming down Albert Road from the Town Hall, turn right at Spensleys and follow Exchange Square as far as you can until you hit the A66. That’s us!
How’s the parking?
There’s loads of on street parking behind the building and in Exchange Square. It’s free after 6pm and cheap as chips during the day.
What’s the public transport like?
Train: Middlesbrough Train Station is less than 5 minutes on foot (we can do it in 2 if we’re running late!) Head out of the train station, cross the road and carry on straight ahead along Exchange Square. You’ll pass the Bolkow Statue on your right and we are the last building before you hit the A66. The last trains are just after 10pm so if you’re staying late, you’ll need to jump in a taxi home.
Bus: Middlesbrough Bus Station is a 10 minute walk. Make your way down Corporation Road then turn left at HSBC (the Town Hall is on the other side of the road). Walk down Albert Road until you see Spensley’s on your left, then turn right at Exchange Square (Commerce House on the corner). We are the last building before you hit the A66.
Taxi: The area in front of Base Camp is pedestrianised but a taxi can drop you 150metres from our front door.
What times are you open?
Our cafe is currently closed during the week while Exchange Square is undergoing a huge refurbishment but we are open for mid week events (check our listings).
On Saturdays we are open from 10am if we have a market on or midday if Boro are at home. Keep an eye on our socials @basecampboro for the most up-to-date info
Can I bring my children to an event?
Everyone is welcome at Base Camp. There will be some films, gigs & events with age restrictions but this will made very clear in the ticket information. In addition all our late night events are 18+. Apart from that, bring your kids, your grandad and your dog!
