Fascinating detail of life at sea over two centuries ago
May 2021
Tremendously interesting to see how life as a sailor was lived; both for the ordinary sailors and the naval hierarchy. The surrounding shopsof traders set around the boat, such as the tailor , the gunsmiths etc were enhanced by realistic voice- overs. A good little cafe too and a skittle alley and games area added to the experience

Fantastic place to visit lots to see inside the ship itself and to learn about the history of the ship. A nice play area for the kids I would definitely recommend.

Very informative staff and guides. Very good "One way route" through the ship to keep people Covid safe. The ship is very well maintained and the attending staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

A great experience

The best part of the visit was being able to experience life at sea on The Last of Nelson's frigates. Everything board is authentic and because the ship is floating you are able to enhance that especially on a windy day

Very interesting to step back in time and see life on board a working ship . Not much head room as my husband and son are both over six feet tall but as long as you remember to duck it’s fine .

This frigate is part of the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Hartlepool and has set times during the day you can board.

The staff do a safety brief but then let you board to explore at your leisure but are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Well worth a visit and a trip back to the Royal Navy of the eighteenth century.
