Hartlepool Marina

Situated in the Tees Valley in Northeast England, the Hartlepool Marina is perfectly positioned, with access to the open sea and the sheltered waters of the Tees Bay, offering picturesque seascapes with the pretty backdrop of the Hartlepool headland.

The Marina is a popular, multi award winning destination, and holds the ethos “berthing for all”, providing around 500 fully serviced berths.

Hartlepool Marina


Along with its 500 berthing stations, the marina is staffed 24 hours a day, all year round, to offer the best possible experience. It also holds amenity blocks with toilet, shower, and laundrette facilities.


Hartlepool marina has a long history of use in British naval expeditions, hosting and servicing ships that were used during the Napoleonic Wars. During the First World War, the marina became a target for the German navy, and following this time, the town saw a decline in industry, and a rise in unemployment.

However, in the 1990s, major investment began, and the redevelopment of the docks area and the marina transformed the town into the lively place that it is today!

The marina itself is surrounded by a cosmopolitan mix of bistros, bars, cafes, restaurants, and shops.

A walk out of the marina takes you into Hartlepool itself, which offers something for everyone:  a cinema, an art gallery, a naval museum, and a scenic beach and pier!
