Clean and clearly signposted to exist and facilities. Staff on hand to answer any questions. Good outlets and sundries available. All in the historic building. Lovely just to sit and gaze about.

Popped up to Scotland via Darlington and the staff are extremely helpful and always on hand to answer any “random” questions...... first class lounge is relaxing and full of complementary food and drink, a true first class service.

The railways started in this part of the world. If you love the railways then this is a must visit. Also suggest you visit the museum which was the original station and then head to Shildon.
