We are busier than ever getting Darlington’s newest visitor attraction, Hopetown Darlington, ready to open next Summer.

This unfortunately means that we have to temporarily pause our school workshops offer. All existing school bookings will be honoured, however, we are unable to take any new bookings at this current time. In the interim, we can continue to offer you any of our digital classroom resources for The Stockton and Darlington Railway. Please email our Learning and Access Officer Sarah Gouldsbrough to request these.

We are working on a new workshop offer and details of these will be published in Spring 2024 on our new website.

We will be able to visit schools and welcome school trips to Hopetown Darlington from September 2024.

Thank you, the Hopetown Darlington team.
