About this experience

Following the success of Quiet Hour shopping in Darlington before Christmas 2017, a group of Darlington retailers and other venues continue to host 60 minutes of relaxed shopping in the town each and every Sunday from 10.30am – 11.30am.

In addition to the Cornmill other retailers taking part include Queen Street, Mercure Darlington Kings Head Hotel, House of Fraser and The Dolphin Centre to take part alongside a number of independent retailers and services.

We recognise that some of our shoppers struggle with the hustle, bustle and noise that a busy shopping centre can generate so to support these shoppers, some of whom would prefer to shop in quieter and calmer surroundings, and others who have autism and dementia, our weekly quiet hour will help to create a more relaxing and enjoyable shopping experience for all, providing customers with a break from the sensory overload.

Please note not all retailers participate.
