Circa 1840, replacing or enlarging the original terminus of the Stockton and Darlington Railway opened 1825.

Long front building having 2-storey, 6-window centre with a loggia whose 7 cast iron columns support a bracketed timber cornice. Long, single-storey side wings of differing lenth and irregular fenestration. Walls now roughcast. Slated roofs with eaves soffits and chimney stacks of conjoined hexagonal ashlar shafts at ends of centre block; similar paired or single shafts to wings. Plain, timber-roofed train shed at rear in 2 unequal spans with row of cast iron columns. Short flanking sheds with cast iron supports to lean-to roofs against the front building. Good example of early, straight forward railway station. Now in use as a railway museum.

Graded for its association with the 1st public railway in England.
