Five reasons to live in Darlington

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.

We've pulled together our top five reasons for relocating to Darlington below, you can also download a guide to moving to Darlington and the Tees Valley.
