  • Not a bad place to live. Good theatre and arts centre. Dolphin centre - leisure centre. Reasonable shopping, quite central. Excellent schools, a hospital and pubs, clubs etc. Colleges and a new site for Teeside Uni. Housing stock ranges from very reasonable terraces to very expensive detached. Main employers are the council and we have a few retail parks as well as Cummins, etc. Centrally placed for the A19 and the A1, although the state of the roads in the town are poor-badly maintained. Main problem is parking and congestion in the town. Forgot to mention some lovely parks.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.

  • I would say on a personal experience living here all my life Darlington is a very happy, safe place. Also it is a nice community - very family orientated. I have lived here for 28 years and I have had many an opportunity to move somewhere else, but I have never wanted to. I love Darlington and I will never leave. I hope you found this useful!
