Darlington is a large market town with a population of just over 100,000 residents.
The town’s Quaker architecture, well imagined rail and road connections and lively town centre at its heart make it an attractive, vibrant and well-connected place to live and work.
Speaking of work, did we mention that that the average commute in Darlington is just 10 minutes?
Covering an area of almost 80 mi², our borough includes the market town of Darlington with its desirable west-end, generously proportioned detached executive residences around Blackwell, and ‘village-like’ hubs of Cockerton and West Park in the south west, Haughton Le Skerne and Burtree Garden Village to the North East.
Our 16 parks and 10 nature reserves stretch right across the town. South Park – the oldest park in the region, with its Victorian features is just a short walk from the station and town centre shopping. Surrounded as we are by countryside and the splendour of both the Durham and Yorkshire Dales, and Tees Valley, a country walk and a good pub is never far away.
A perfect mix of town and country, Darlington also encompasses 26 civil parishes.
Darlington is becoming a popular place to move to of late. Why? Perhaps it is our perfectly placed location, with just 2.5 hours to London by train, 24 trains to the capital each day and Teesside International Airport on our doorstep.
Or maybe it’s because Darlington itself is going places. With millions being invested in the town, Darlington is taking up its rightful position as a hugely desirable place to live, work and invest in the North East.
With both the Yorkshire and Durham Dales as well as the Tees Valley on our doorstep and ready access to Newcastle, Manchester, Edinburgh and London, Darlington is just the ticket for people who want somewhere that’s both urban and rurally desirable, offering a phenomenal work/life balance, without the London price tag.
