Darlington, located near the River Skerne in the County of Durham in northeast England, is home to the birth of the world’s first passenger railway. This fascinating town with diverse scenery grabs the tourists’ attention each year. Nature lovers can walk through the Rockwell Local Nature Reserve. Darlington still continues to give tribute to countless contributions to railway work through David Mach's “Train,” a sculpture near the Stockton-Darlington railway.
