There is evidence of settlements in this area since prehistory but the city’s importance and affluence grew rapidly in the Victorian era. Darlington played an important part in the history of the Industrial Revolution and was the home of the world’s first passenger train, as well as a centre of engineering, especially bridge building. Some bridges built here can be found as far afield as the River Nile and the River Amazon.
You will always find plenty to entertain you
On the site of the old market you will find the Market Cascade. This fountain represents the washing down of the streets at the end of market day. It features a red granite barcode design linking history and the present day; the red signifying the blood from the meat market and the barcode the technology of modern supermarkets.
An interesting building in the centre of the town is the listed Memorial Hall, the only surviving part of the old Memorial Hospital. Inside it contains panels listing local casualties of the First World War. Originally an 18th century isolation hospital, the present Memorial hospital was opened in 1933.
At the edge of the town you will find the life size sculpture of the locomotive “Mallard”, created from 185,000 bricks. You can walk along the specially created footpaths to reach and explore the sculpture. Some of the bricks are special bat bricks, encouraging them to use the sculpture as their home.
It is worth paying a visit to the Head of Steam – Railway Centre and Museum, housed in the old North Road Train Station. Here you can explore locomotives, models, signs and many interactive displays.
The city lies on the main East Coast train line and there is a large station in the town centre with extensive facilities. Trains link the town to Penzance (via Leeds), Edinburgh city center, central London and Newcastle-upon-tyne city centre. The seaside resort town of Scarborough can also be reached by rail via central York UK.
Budget Places to Stay – rooms in or near town centre
There is plenty of reasonably priced accommodation in Darlington, close to the station or nearby. If you are looking for cheap hotels and B&B’s you will find that these range from well-known chain hotels, offering bed and breakfast, to more intriguing places.
In the town itself there are attractive coaching inns sitting on the banks of the River Tees, one even has a garden on a small island in the river. Plenty of modern and historic houses close to the station offer bed and breakfast accommodation. Many of these B&B’s and cheap hotels come with good reviews about their clean guest rooms and friendly welcome.
A little further from the town centre, in the surrounding villages such as Croft on Tees, you will find cheap hotels with four poster beds and good English food. For something slightly different but still very reasonably priced you could stay in the tower suite of a 12th century castle!
