HMS Trincomalee, built for the Admiralty in Bombay in 1817, is the oldest ship afloat in the UK today, and a unique surviving example of the Classic British Frigate. The Ship, now sensitively restored in an award-winning scheme, provides an experience of the days of Nelsonís Navy nearly two hundred years ago.

The Ship is berthed at Hartlepool Historic Quay and the superb audio guide tour of her decks is a popular and exciting experience.

HMS Trincomalee is now fitted with two platform lifts that enable those disabled, elderly or infirm to view the three main decks. Access to the Ship is by a flat gangway.

The Ship is open throughout the year. Follow the brown tourist signs for the Hartlepool Historic Quay and look for the masts! There is plenty of free parking.

HMS Trincomalee hosts functions, dinners, meetings and presentations for businesses and organisations and is an unusual and popular venue for weddings.

We look forward to welcoming you on board.
