AboutHartlepool is nestled in the Tees Valley in the North East of England, an old town steeped in over 1000 years of history. Hartlepool boasts an award winning marina promoting up to 500 fully services berths including our new drive on drive off docking for smaller craft alongside a 40ton travel hoist, boatyard and amenity facilities for the long and short term visitor and a unique selection of water activities for your crew, friends or family. The marina is surrounded by a cosmopolitan mix of bistros, bars, cates, restaurants and entertainment options. It is ideally placed for quick access to and from the open sea or for cruising in the sheltered waters of the Tees Bay. A splendid promenade connects the marina with Seaton Carew with miles of golden sands.
The marina's surrounding complex is dotted with assorted retails options and is home to Hartlepool's Maritime Experience - a faithful reproduction of an 18th century seaport portraying the exciting experience of what life was like at the time of Nelson, Napolean and the battle of Trafalger. The site is home to our very own tall ship, HMS Trincomalee.
