Hartlepool, a port city on the North Sea with 1,400 years of history, was born around a 7th century monastery.
By the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Hartlepool had become crucial to its shipbuilding industry and, because of this, the city was the victim of a rare bombing by the Imperial German Navy in 1914. Following the departure of heavy industry, Hartlepool harbour was revitalized with an open-air museum on the pier, where you can visit HMS Trincomalee, the oldest British warship still afloat.
