Welcome to HMS Trincomalee, the oldest British warship afloat in the world, berthed at Hartlepool's Maritime Experience in North East England.

Come and experience life on board this fast, sleek fighting machine, the most advanced of its age, manned by a breed of hardy sailors well used to the long months at sea and able to fight like lions. Little wonder that they were known as 'wooden ships and iron men'.
