Perhaps the most iconic railway station in the Tees Valley, Darlington will meet your needs when trying to get to any major city in the country. The station is Grade II listed and was originally opening in 1841. England’s first commercial steam railway ran from Stockton to Darlington – and the locals are proud of this part of their history.
A 95ft-long brick train sculpture can be seen when approaching Darlington from the A66. Redevelopment works have begun to increase capacity in line with increased demand for train services and by 2025 Darlington is expected to have two more platforms, bringing the total number up to six.
You can catch trains to London, Edinburgh, Durham, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, and pretty much any major city in England, Scotland and Wales from Darlington Railway Station.
Parking at the railway station can be notoriously difficult, especially at peak times. There is a short stay bay parking area which fills up quickly, and the traffic management leaves a lot to be desired.
Public transport does serve Darlington Railway Station. Buses serve Darlington Town Centre from surrounding towns and villages, but you’ll have to leave time to walk to the station if you are approaching by bus.
You can catch a train from other stations in the Tees Valley – two of the four platforms serve local towns with Northern Rail services regularly stopping here.
