You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

NatWest Bank

25 High Row, Darlington DL3 7QP, UK – 0345 788 8444

Lost my debit card. The representative on the phone was so helpful. He reassured me and calmed me down. Excellent service friendly and warm

Best part of this natwest was that I had my 6 week old baby with me and she started crying because she needed food but becsuse im breast feeding and didn't want to feed in public because you get so funny looks from people and theres some wired people out there the guy offered me a room where there was no one... lovely people that work in natwest Darlington

TSB Bank

40 Blackwellgate, Darlington DL1 5HW, UK – 01325 919997

I love this Bank and wouldn't Bank anywhere else when most Banks these days are relying on customer's performing almost all of their transactions themselves the TSB has real people to talk to and to help you.

Always gone out of way to help

HSBC Bank plc

1 Prospect Pl, Darlington DL3 7LQ, UK – 0845 740 4404

Is it just this branch where the statement ATMs are never working? Shows how stupid it is to have single function machines.

Amazing bank really good for Tax evasion ;3

Building Societies


5-6 Bondgate, Darlington DL3 7JB, UK – 0800 554 0867

5 star customer service. Was thinking about leaving after a problem which I thought nationwide should of held some responsibility for. After going into my local branch in Huddersfield and having no joy and also calling the customer service line I thought enough is enough. I came to this branch as I was working in the north east. The customer service manager and the branch manager where extremely helpful and very understanding and solved the problem no questions asked. This branch is very good take note Huddersfield these lads know how to look after there customers. Thank you

Good location, nice space with plenty of alternative to counter staff although they are lovely too!

Local Chambers of Commerce for DL1 1DR. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Town Hall

Feethams, Darlington DL1 5QT, UK – 01325 405000

Some people don't like the architecture of this place but I find it functional and suitable for a civic building. It is also very convenient to have the town hall right in the centre of town and easily accessible by foot or by public transport. I have always found the front desk staff to be very pleasant, efficient and helpful.

Strange building. Very tired looking on the out but quite modern inside.

Simon is by far the best dentist I've had. Very gentle and made treatments a breeze and completely pain free. Highly recommended

Darlington Restorative Dentistry Referrals

8 Cleveland Terrace, Darlington DL3 7HA, UK – 01325 464169

Just had my front teeth restored following loss of enamel. Jon was professional, thorough, reassuring and a total perfectionist. I love my new teeth, they have given me the confidence back I've not had for years. Thank you!

Bupa Dental Care Darlington

20 Woodland Rd, Darlington DL3 7PL, UK – 01325 359441

Had a filling done today all good there. Only down side was that I got seen 30 minutes after my appointment time. I wouldn’t have minded if I was told that they were running behind on time

This dental practice is superb. Very caring and understanding of the anxious patient. Always pain free treatment. High recommend Maria Kokkinou.

Moorlands Surgery

139 Willow Rd, Darlington DL3 9JP, UK – 01325 469168

Great doctors. Call early for same day appointment between 8am and 9am

Fantastic surgery.

Carmel Medical Practice

Nunnery La, Darlington DL3 8SQ, UK – 01325 520794

I have nothing but good words to say about Carmel - the doctors are consistently professional, compassionate and efficient. When visitng the doctor I have never felt constrained by time pressures - eachdoctor takes as long as they need with every patient and for that reason I am never upset or riled about waiting times. The receptionists have always been helpful and very efficient too - all in all I could not wish for a better practice

I've been with this surgery my whole life and my mum was even with them before I was born. I've never had any problems and find all the doctors sympathetic and kind. The receptionists themselves have gone out of their way for me when my mental health means I can't attend appointments. I can't fault them at all. Only thing I would suggest is online booking for appointments because it's a bit tricky to get appointments

Neasham Road Surgery

186 Neasham Rd, Darlington DL1 4YL, UK – 01325 461128

Good practice, short waiting time.

Great surgery, great doctors and staff.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

BMI Woodlands Hospital

Morton Park, Darlington DL1 4PL, UK – 01325 341700

The standard of care that I received, from assessment, through surgery and then on to aftercare was absolutely first class. Every member of staff, from Consultant to housekeeping was a pleasure to be in contact with. I think it is worthwhile stating that, whilst my employer provides private health insurance, the treatment my wife received at Woodlands as an NHS patient was of an absolutely equal standard, so that would make this a "ten star" review.

Having been both a private and nhs patient I think the standards of care are excellent. Staff are all lovely - ward staff in particular and very helpful. Clean, tidy, and very happy patient. It’s quit a treck for me but worth the travel.

Darlington Memorial Hospital

Hollyhurst Rd, Darlington DL3 6HX, UK – 01325 380100

All of the nurses and staff both male and female have been fantastic, caring, friendly and compassionate to my sister and I in our time of grieving, i am 100% certain my Mother has no pain and is comfortable in her time of passing. I find it amazing that even though my Mother is unconscious and unaware they talk to her and apologise to her when they need to move her. In my eye the don't deserve 5 gold stars they deserve at least 10! Thank you all so much. Martin Edwards.

I am giving a 5 star for the A & E staff that treated me. Another visit to A&E and after a long wait was eventually seen only to be rushed into resus, and given pain relief etc etc. One of the shining stars was a great, professional Nurse called Hailey (their were a couple of others but didn't catch their names) and she actually remembered me from a previous visit (few years ago) and was once again very good, sympathetic to me & others despite them all being very busy. All the qualified nurses on ward 31 were very good, but i did notice during the night it was near impossible to find a doctor for pain relief and some of the non qualified staff are nowhere near as caring to patients as the Nurses & Doctors. All in all its a great place but such a shame the qualified staff (those that took the time to qualify, study and work hard) are understaffed, underpaid and sadly under valued by most.

Drinkfield Civic Amenities Site

Mewburn Rd, Darlington DL3 0RG, UK

On approach to the DCAS you are immediately aware of the amazing ambience and look of the place-sweeping vistas are all around you: Particularily of note are the bird and wildlife sanctuary on the northern perimeter of the site (protected from wind blow by high netting).On the south side are more industrial areas selling a variety of trade and non trade premises. The staff on site are efficient and work in a very professional manner. The layout of the site is excellent and consists a number of large industrial size containers in which you can dispose most items. I was thrilled to visit and can't praise the site enough

The guys are really helpful and polite

Total Recycling Services Ltd

Yarm Road Business Park/Lingfield Way, Darlington DL1 4PZ, UK – 01325 464713

Teward Skip Hire & Recycling Ltd

Albert Hill Industrial Estate, Dodsworth St, Darlington DL1 2NG, UK – 01325 465533

Skip arrived on time, with permit, clean. When I had finished with it, rang to arrange collection. They turned up as promised - really good service and not a bad price too. Will certainly recommend to others when they need a skip.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Our daughter has been very happy here. She has been looked after, encouraged, excited by her work and pushed to do her best. We love the atmosphere when visiting and staff have really helped since I've become a wheelchair user. After 5 years belonging to our school we would recommend to parents. Problems we have encountered as all kids do at school have been dealt with quickly. We have seen any hint of bullying, unsociable behaviour and difficult times turned around. Staff are super supportive and they give the impression of loving our kids and going the extra mile is considered their day to day job.
