Hartlepool is a popular seaside town on the North East coast of England. Its maritime heritage is a particular draw for tourists who also enjoy long strolls along the promenade from Hartlepool Marina to Seaton Carew – the town’s seaside resort. But perhaps the best thing about this town is the people who live there, locally known as ‘monkey hangers’ due to a Napoleonic war mishap that hasn’t been forgotten.
Hartlepool’s waterfront is spectacular. Take in the golden-sand coastline and attractions like the HMS Trincomalee – the oldest British warship still afloat. The town’s proud heritage makes it a desirable place to live, although this isn’t reflected in the cost of living, with homes here going for well below the national average of £240,000.
