Superb workspaces in the heart of Darlington

Darlington’s Central Park is fast becoming the most desirable address for new and growing businesses in the Tees Valley. Sister centres Business Central and Innovation Central – just minutes from one another on the park – provide a choice of carefully designed coworking, office and lab space, all joined together by the services today’s entrepreneurs need to innovate and thrive. Business Central has supported 200 businesses to start up and grow since opening in 2015 and the newly opened Innovation Central now offers further choice on the park. Both centres are run by the North East BIC on behalf of Darlington Borough Council. Want to see for yourself? We’d love to show you around!

An inspiring environment

From abandoned rail sidings to a thriving new live/work/learn neighbourhood, the 30-hectare Central Park site is already a success story. A new campus for Teesside University and Darlington College, plus the opening of the National Horizons Centre and National Biologics Manufacturing Centre have created exciting collaborative opportunities. And there is much more to come.
