Hartlepool Historic Quay
Hartlepool Marina’s centrepiece is the award-winning Historic Quay – a faithful reproduction of an 18th century seaport portraying the exciting experience of what life was like at the time of Nelson and Trafalgar.
Hartlepool Historic Quay is home to the Trincomalee – Europe’s oldest floating warship! The ship was restored by the people of Hartlepool so it’s only fitting that it now makes up the centrepiece of the spectacular Historic Quay.
This superb visitor attraction offers the sights, smells and sounds of the naval yesteryear. Experience “Pressganged”, “Fighting Ships” and the children’s maritime adventure centre featuring an adventure playship.
The Museum of Hartlepool sits alongside the Historic Quay. The museum follows the time-line of the town from Neolithic times to the present day. It’s well worth a visit and incorporates the PSS Wingfield Castle, a Hartlepool built paddle steamer. (free entrance).
