The Tees-Exe line is an imaginary line that can be drawn on a map of Great Britainmarker which roughly divides the lowland and upland regions of the country.

The line links the mouth of the River Teesmarker between Redcarmarker and Hartlepoolmarker in the north east of England with the mouth of the River Exe in Devonmarker, the south west. The lowlands (sedimentary rocks) are predominant to the east of the line and higher land (igneous and metamorphic rocks) dominates to the west. As well as geology, those areas to the north and west of the line are generally wetter in climate than those to the east and south.

Similar lines are commonly drawn, for similar purposes, between the Severn Estuary and the Washmarker, and between the Severn and the mouth of the River Trent.
