Welcoming first homeowners: Spring 2017Local area
Darlington is a market town in Country Durham, located on the banks of the River Skerne. The town's history was linked with that of local Quaker families during the Victorian era, and it was famous as the terminus of the world's first passenger railway. Today, Darlington is the gateway to North England's moors and dales, and the rugged Pennine Way to the west.
The town itself is known for its bustling outdoor and indoor markets, held every week right under the town clock on Prebend Row. The pedestrian-only centre has plenty of good-quality shopping, with a variety of high-end boutiques, as well as restaurants, local shops and everyday amenities. Darlington also has several notable historic buildings, such as the 12th-century St Cuthbert's Church, one of the most important Early English churches in the north.
For a nice walk, you can wander around the 91-acre South Park, which is full of colourful flowerbeds. Music lovers can enjoy the Darlington Jazz Club or even join the Darlington Orchestra, which welcomes players of all ages and levels. The town also has a beautifully refurbished old cinema, The Majestic, a Forum Music Centre and a Grade II-listed library.
Darlington is located in a prime position, and has plenty of excellent transport options – the town is an important interchange on the East Coast Main Line and is easy to reach by the A1. Newcastle upon Tyne is an hour away, and Middlesbrough is less than 30 minutes away by car.
