Hopetown Darlington

Blog image

Just in time for the school holidays the region’s newest visitor attraction, Hopetown Darlington, opens Tue 16 Jul and then 7 days a week.

In 1825, a railway journey changed the world forever. Locomotion No. 1 became the first steam locomotive to haul a passenger-carrying train on a public railway – the Stockton and Darlington Railway.

The restored Goods Shed on McNay Street, originally built in 1833, will serve as the entrance. This now houses a café, shop, and digital media experience.

Nearby, the North Road Station Museum (formerly the Head of Steam) features a brand-new interactive permanent exhibition celebrating rail travel and engineering brilliance.

In the Carriage Works, visitors can explore “Brick Journeys”, an exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks.

At Darlington Locomotive Works guests can watch the construction of the UK’s newest steam engine.
