With the town centre less than a five minute walk, entrance to the development is off Haughton Road near the main railway station and beside Darlington College and Teesside University.
Central Park is in an excellent location in the centre of town. The main railway station and high street shops are less than a five minute walk away.
Located in South Durham, the market town of Darlington was built in 1183. During the 19th Century, powerful Quaker families were prominent employers and philanthropists in the area. Darlington’s’ most famous landmark, the clock tower was a gift to the town by the industrialist and Quaker, Joseph Pease in 1864.
The town is known for its association with railways and the world’s first passenger rail journey was between Shildon and Stockton-On-Tees via Darlington in 1825.
In recent years, the town centre has undergone a full refurbishment entitled The Pedestrian Heart, which has seen the majority of the town centre pedestrianised. The Feethams Leisure Project, which will include a multiplex cinema, hotel, shops and restaurants, is also close to completion.
The Civic Theatre is a popular arts venue in town, hosting a mix of musicals, dramas, plays and pantomimes and the Forum Music Centre hosts regular live music events.
The town centre also builds on its heritage as a market town with fresh local produce on sale in the Victorian covered market, a vibrant outdoor market on Saturdays and Mondays, and occasional speciality markets also taking place.
For those who like retail therapy, Darlington has over 500 shops and independent stores. The Cornmill indoor shopping centre includes over 40 stores including many high street names.
