Darlington facilities

The County Durham market town of Darlington is served by the richly decorated Victorian station, enjoying the impressive sight across the sprawling town to the much-loved River Skerne.

Growing in size during the second half of the 19th century, the town became important for its railway manufacturing, and the Hopetown Carriage Works was the main employer in the area. With three large railworks, the town achieved world recognition by sending Darlington-made railway bridges around the world - crossing the River Nile, the Amazon, and Sydney Harbour.

The station itself serves nearly two and a half million passengers every year and is on the East Coast Main Line - the 400 miles of track running between London and Edinburgh. The curved glass roof allows the platforms to receive a good amount of natural light while rising above, the iconic Victorian clock tower can be enjoyed throughout the town.

With an active business centre, if this is your reason for travelling to Darlington, Northern have a range of cut-price tickets to make train travel the easy choice, including our Corporate Season Tickets for regular trips
