Hartlepool Maritime Experience

Hartlepool's Maritime Experience is a superb re-creation of an 18th century seaport and a fantastic place to visit for families. It brings to life the time of Nelson, Napoleon and the Battle of Trafalgar.

Travel back in the mari-time machine to experience how it was aboard a real British naval frigate, two centuries ago. Explore the historic quayside, featuring 'Pressganged', 'Fighting Ships', and realistic period shops and houses.

You can talk to tour guides in authentic period dress, and see Britain's oldest warship afloat, HMS Trincomalee.
