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.

Used this station en route to Durham. Found it clean, friendly and with excellent signage. Seemed to have a lot of staff who were very friendly and helpful. Nice to use such a bright, light, well kept station.

Darlington is a lovely old station with enough modern touches to allow your wait for a train fairly comfortable. My only complaint is the parking and getting in and out of the station

There are barriers with staff so you would need their permission which I am sure they would not withold. If it very late the gates may well be left open.
