Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8) and Older Children (9-12)

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

Hartlepool's Maritime Experience is the North East's premier maritime attraction. Children will love entering our mari-time machine to experience life on board a fighting ship. Explore the authentic quayside with its' period shops and houses and discover the Children's Maritime Adventure Centre, including a large wooden play-ship!

A visit is not complete without an audio guided tour of the oldest warship afloat in Europe: the magnificent HMS Trincomalee. Many children arrive in pirate costume and can almost believe they are Jack Sparrow for the day! Watch our costumed character guides demonstrating sword fighting, gun-firing and cannon-firing (check for times).

Just watch out for the stocks and you wouldn't want to be 'Pressganged' into His Majesty's Navy!

Entry is free to the fascinating Museum of Hartlepool with hundreds of exhibits and interactives including the Paddle Steam Ship Wingfield Castle.

During school holidays there are craft workshops for families to join in with too! This attraction is all-weather friendly with many areas inside as well as the outdoor quayside. Although it is located next to the North Sea there is no need for any special clothing. Most areas are buggy friendly.
