Welcome to Enjoy Darlington

Darlington is a contemporary market town where people can discover what makes the town special.

With more independent shops than any others of a similar size, it is a smart choice for shoppers where you are guaranteed to find something different. Browse a range of designer and independent shops and explore the historic yards. Visit the Victorian Covered Market, take a stroll down to the fantastic library then relax in one of our many cafes, bars & restaurants.

We are justifiably proud of Darlington's world famous rail heritage so no trip would be complete without a visit to the Head of Steam to see Stephenson’s “Locomotion” and enjoy some family fun events.

When the lights go down, catch a show at the wonderful Darlington Hippodrome or watch a gig at The Forum. See the latest film at Vue or the Odeon cinema and there’s also plenty of amazing restaurants, bars and clubs in the town. Try one of our award-winning cocktail or real ale bars in which you’ll find that great north eastern welcome.

There’s also plenty of accommodation to choose from which suit a range of tastes and budgets. From 5-star golf resorts and spas to cosy bed and breakfasts.
