The railway and the sea are inextricably linked in Hartlepool, so it's fitting that, whichever way you approach the town, the North Sea will appear through the windows of the train. It was the railway, linking the old fishing village to the Durham coal fields and the shipbuilding industry, that transformed Hartlepool into an industrial port. Today, trains to Hartlepool include regular services from Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Newcastle, as well as long distance services to London King's Cross via York. The station is located between the town centre, dominated by the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre in front of the Hartlepool Memorial, and the docks. The Hartlepool Marina, north of the station, has been central to the town's regeneration, and includes the Hartlepool Maritime Experience, a recreation of the seaport on the historic quayside. The marina is also home to the HMS Trincomalee, an 18th century warship that now operates as a visitor attraction.
