Darlington is a great place for a road trip. With Yescapa you can hire a motorhome in Darlington and set off to explore. Begin by heading to Raby Castle, which has extensive grounds, a deer park; idyllic walled gardens and a historical castle. Pre-booking isn’t necessary either so you can decide to travel to Raby Castle at the last minute too.
Another beautiful place to visit during your motorhome hire in Darlington is Thornton Hall Gardens. The spectacular gardens are not open all year round so make sure you do your homework before setting off! The gardens are home to a splendid manor house dating back to the 16th century. You can come to admire the gorgeous roses, clematis and tulips, as well as ornamental and wildlife ponds.
Lastly, if you are interested in the industrial revolution and trains, you may want to head over to the Head of Steam, Darlington Railway Museum. This museum tells the story of Darlington’s captivating railway history, the North Eastern Railway, which was in fact the forerunner to the existing East Coast Main Line. The Stockton and Darlington Railway (built in 1825) was the first public line to use steam locomotives. They have played a big part in Darlington as the Stockton and Darlington Railway donated the clock tower and market hall, which are main attractions within this quaint town.
