Hartlepool's Maritime Experience
Come and ‘Sea’ for Yourself…..
Set a course for Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience and voyage back in time to the sights and sounds of an 18th century seaport, to the times of Nelson and Napoleon. Dare you experience life aboard a real British Naval frigate?
This multi-award winning attraction features a historic quayside with its period houses and shop displays, HMS Trincomalee – the UK’s oldest warship afloat and the fascinating Museum of Hartlepool. Plus costumed guides, ‘Fighting Ships’ – an audio / visual tour of a warship, ‘Pressganged’ – a short film presentation, regular gunfiring, swording fighting and cannon firing displays (check for times) and lots, lots more.
Good disabled access, including a lift onboard HMS Trincomalee, free parking, two coffee shops, gift shop and toilet facilities. Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience is a great day out for all ages, young and not-so-young. It really should be top of your list for places to visit.
Admission price applies which gives you full access to the quayside and HMS Trincomalee.
