Darlington Wedding Venues and Wedding Services
The market town of Darlington (known affectionately as ‘Darlo’ by the locals) is situated within the ceremonial county of Durham on the banks of the River Skerne; a tributary of the River Tees. Much of Darlington’s early development was thanks to the local Quaker community which resided in the area during the Victorian era, and as a result Darlington boasts some beautiful Victorian buildings. Darlington’s most famous landmark, the Victorian clock tower, was a gift to the town from one such Quaker family.
Darlington is perhaps most well known for being the location of the world’s first passenger train! The Stockton and Darlington Railway was the first publicly used railway, it was opened in 1825 and also held the title of the world’s longest railway line at the time it was built. Darlington is also home to the grade 1 listed St Cuthbert’s church, which is an important example of early churches within the North East of England.
Modern day Darlington has seen a great deal of redevelopment of the centre of town, turning it into a popular location for locals and tourists alike. Often referred to as ‘the gateway to the Tees Valley’, Darlington is well placed for easy access to the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Cleveland Hills; so beautiful countryside is but a stone’s throw away.
Selecting Darlington for the location of your wedding will provide you with a great choice of breath-taking wedding venues, high quality wedding suppliers and popular wedding shows/fairs including the Darlington Weddings Bridal Fayre and The Great North Wedding Show. Some of Darlington’s most popular wedding venues include Walworth Castle Hotel, Headlam Hall Hotel and Bannatyne Hotel.
