Trains go directly from Darlington to Kings Cross approximately every half an hour, although the exact time varies. East Coast Trains provide a direct service, whilst Cross Country and Grand Central go as far as Doncaster and York respectively; thereafter travellers need to take an East Coast train to complete their journey. Travel time for both options is approximately two hours and 45 minutes.
Free Wi-Fi, restaurant dining and café car services are all available on East Coast trains. Breakfast and dinner are served in the restaurant car, while sandwiches, snacks and drinks may be purchased at the café. First class passengers have the additional option of being served in their seats. Bicycles may be taken aboard the train, though it is best to call in advance to arrange this as space is limited.*Information correct at time of writing (March 2011). May be subject to change
