Hartlepool´s Maritime Experience
A re-creation of an 18th century naval seaport, and see where businesses prospered and flourished supplying the huge demand from the Royal Navy and merchant ships. Everything from candles to canvases, swords to sailcloth. The quayside recaptures the atmosphere of such a seaport, boasting an interesting range of period shops and buildings in authentic architectural styles.
See HMS Trincomalee 1817, the oldest British warship still afloat, with its towering structure and thundering cannons. Built in Bombay, India in 1817, the Trincomalee was brought to Hartlepool in 1987.
