"Darlington is a town in County Durham. Best known for its pioneering role in the development of the railway in the 19th Century." WikiVoyage
Thanks to local Quaker families' influence during the Georgian and Victorian Era, Darlington, known as Darlo to the locals, flourished into the English market town that it is today.
Darlington has a stable retail sector. The place is abuzz with a wide range of designer and high street brands and a big market. Tourists can enjoy a great lunch in a continental restaurant or go to a pub if they fancy a pint.
Locals take pride in their world-famous railway heritage and rightfully so. Make Darlington Railway Museum one of your first stops, so you don’t miss out on Stephenson’s “Locomotion”.
You can find the North East’s number one leisure venue, The Dolphin Centre here, enjoy a splash in one of the four pools and let off some steam.
Take a lovely walk along the gorgeous South Park or feast your eyes on the sculptures displayed at West Park. When evening comes, you will not run out of choices; the town doesn’t fall behind when it comes to the music scene. The Edwardian Civic Theatre, Arts Centre and the latest music venue, The Forum are all worth visiting.
From most of the country’s largest towns and cities, you can reach Darlington by train through Bank Top Station on the East Coast Mainline.
