When you find a great deal on car rental, Hartlepool holidays can be made even more exciting.
Many people visit Hartlepool to learn about its rich maritime history but also to enjoy the buzzing modern town that it is today. During the summer months it enjoys pleasant weather and this is a perfect time to enjoy the bars and cafes of Church Street or to take a fishing trip.
Highlights within the city include Hartlepool Historic Quay, now known as Hartlepool's Maritime Experience, which is home to one of the oldest warships in the UK - HMS Trincomalee - as well as the fantastic Museum of Hartlepool. The Heugh Gun Battery Museum tells the tale of those who fought to defend the town during the world wars.
You'll find the award-winning Maritime Experience in Hartlepool Marina. This seaside spot has received generous investment in recent years to transform it from an ugly duckling of the shoreline into a beautiful swan and the symbol of Hartlepool's regeneration. It's a great place to eat and drink - you'll find pleasant hotels here. You can also book boat trips to see Hartlepool from the water, as thousands of sailors and visitors have done in the past.
The Historic Headland, another area that has seen significant development, is crammed with fishermen's cottages, public art and buildings of the past. Follow the Headland Story Trail to learn more.
While this town on the North Sea has a number of green, open spaces, it's the seafront walks that capture many hearts, especially those of keen birdwatchers. Migratory birds stop off here and put a fresh tick in the notebooks of ornithologists.
