Visitors Guide To Darlington


Welcome to This is Darlington - your guide to accommodation, restaurants, bars and entertainment in Darlington!

There is a real buzz in Darlington, where vibrant street theatre sits hand in hand with the attractive Quaker architecture of High Row, the Town Clock and Victorian Market Hall, which preside over the new pedestrianised town centre.

Discover its many pleasures for yourself - stroll around the town centre, dip a toe in the Water Cascade sculpture or sit and watch the world go by from a pavement café.

With more independent and designer shops than many other towns of a similar size, it is a smart choice for shoppers where you are guaranteed to find something different.

When the lights go down, dress up for an evening at the Edwardian Civic Theatre, or enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the Arts Centre and Forum Music Centre. There are also plenty of amazing restaurants, stylish bars, clubs and award-winning real ale bars in which to find that great North Eastern welcome. Darlington folk are justifiably proud of the town's world famous rail heritage so no trip would be complete without a visit to the Darlington Railway Centre & Museum to see Stephenson's 'Locomotion' and enjoy family fun events.

Darlington has plenty of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets - from 5 star golf and spar resorts to cosy bed and breakfasts you're sure to find somewhere to rest your head!
