Travelling around Hartlepool
Hartlepool is situated on the North Sea coast in the heart of County Durham. Lying between two major northern hubs, Newcastle and Middlesbrough, there’s much to admire in this charming harbour town.
Among Hartlepool’s many attractions are St Hilda’s Church – a Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 12th century – a historic quayside with its very own Napoleonic warship, and the magnificent Heugh Lighthouse, keeping a silent watch over the bay.
Hartlepool has excellent road and rail links. Arriva buses operate in the area, providing routes to nearby towns and villages, such as Sherburn and Coxhoe, as well as regular services to Sunderland and Durham.
