    DARLINGTON OFFICE

    ROBINSONS have successfully been one of the most successful and prominent Estate Agents in the Darlington area. The branch which is situated in Duke Street, considered to be the best location for property transactions has been recently refurbished to a modern and high standard. The window display features a state of the art illumination of individual properties, which is both attractive and pleasing to the eye. 

    We believe our comprehensive, yet competitive, marketing package is second to none. The office is OPEN 7 DAYS PER WEEK, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturday 9am - 4pm and Sunday 10am - 1pm. For those extremely busy clients we are also available to 'CHAT' online until 10pm weekdays, 7pm weekends.


    LOCAL INFORMATION 

    Darlington is famous for its affiliation with the beginning of British Railways, celebrated within the Darlington Railway Centre & Museum. The world's first passenger rail journey took place in 1825 on the Stockton and Darlington Railway and later Darlington developed as an important railway town, with three large locomotive works. 


    The local paper, The Northern Echo, was launched in 1870 and is a popular newspaper for most residents of the North East, with both national and international news. One of Darlington's best-known landmarks is the magnificent Market Square Clock Tower, completed in 1864.

    With a contemporary shopping centre, Darlington is known as one of the most active shopping locations in the North East, with a special blend of high street shops, Victorian indoor market and Traditional outdoor market. 

    The culture of Darlington is rich, with the recently restored Civic Theatre, now named 'Darlington Hippodrome' acting as a trendy venue for the popular arts, hosting a range of musical, drama and pantomime events.
