We wanted something different for our wedding and chose to get married on the HMS trincomelee, I can honestly say it was the most amazing wedding venue us or anyone our guests had been to. We got married in the captains cabin and also had the wedding breakfast here as it was a small wedding, from start to finish the staff were amazing and every detail of our special day was perfect. We had a cabin salute after the ceremony which no one had ever seen before. The food was spectacular and we couldn’t have asked for any more. There are some restrictions due to it being a working museum but nothing that effects anything important. We then had our reception the night after in the function room, again the staff, food and atmosphere was fabulous. I would definitely recommend this venue for anyone wanting an extra special wedding!Sent on 15/05/2018

The venue is a beautiful setting for a wedding, HMS Trincomalee is a unique location for the ceremony and an amazing backdrop for the photographs. We had the most wonderful wedding day, all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and are still talking about it weeks later! The Events Manager and team were flexible and accommodating with our ideas and plans for our wedding day, nothing was too much trouble for them. We can highly recommend NMRN Hartlepool as the perfect wedding venue.Sent on 06/08/2019
