The town of Darlington is situated in County Durham in the North-East of England. The market town is most famous for being the location of the world’s first passenger railway in 1825 and that relationship between trains and the town has continued throughout the town’s history. During the 19th and 20th Centuries, it was a major centre for railway manufacturing and the town’s part in the development of railways is portrayed at the Darlington Railway Centre and Museum.
Today the town is a major stop on the East Coast Mainline connecting London to Edinburgh. Five miles east of the town is Durham Tees Valley Airport which offers travel to some UK airports and locations across Europe. And Newcastle International Airport is only 47 miles away. For road users, the A66 offers the main link into the town.
