Living in Darlington

A small and ancient market town located on the River Skerne, Darlington is known for being the birthplace of the world's railways and was the terminus of the first ever passenger line.

Providing a solid base from which to explore the moors and dales as well as the rugged Pennine Way, it is perfect for nature lovers and offers residents the chance to view many natural beauty spots.

Historically the town contains some of the most important Early English churches in the north of the country - including the 12th Century St. Cuthbert's - and you can still see ancient styles in the architecture which was influenced by the local Quaker families and the wider Victorian era.

Darlington also hosts a weekly outdoor market and a thriving indoor market which is found beneath the town clock on Prebend Row - also home to the Cornmill Shopping Centre which provides the main retail opportunities for the town.

The local market square is also one of the biggest in the country and there are plenty of modern activities for residents to enjoy, including sport, leisure, entertainment and dining.
