The local area
Darlington’s heritage is synonymous with the birth of the railways, while the town went on to become a major centre for railway manufacturing. There is plenty of well-priced property in the area that ranges from new builds to period homes and Victorian terraces, while Darlington is surrounded by swathes of lovely countryside; the Durham Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales are all located in the near vicinity.
Transport links are strong thanks to the presence of the A1(M) that passes to the west of Darlington and links the town to the national motorway network. The town’s rail station lies on the East Coast Main Line and is an important interchange stop that offers regular services to cities such as London, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle. Direct services to the capital take two hours 45 minutes, while it’s around half an hour to Newcastle city centre and just over double this to its airport.
There are some excellent schools in the area that will please families with children; primary options include Staindrop CofE, High Coniscliffe CofE and Harrowgate Hill Primary on Thompson Street West. Hurworth School, Longfield School and Hummersknott Academy on Edinburgh Drive are among the choices at secondary level. Darlington College offers further education facilities, while Teeside University has a higher education campus in Darlington.
