Where to go          


for Sightings

The best place to view all of the Hartlepool duties is from the junction of Victoria Road and York Road in Hartlepool Town Centre. At this spot it is possible to see all that Hartlepool have on offer on regular services.


for Photos

Several points throughout the Town Centre, the junction mentioned above and points along either York Road or Victoria Road are as good as any.


for Timetables

Stagecoach in Hartlepool no longer have a travelshop, and timetables can be tricky to get hold of nowadays. Hartlepool Central Library on York Road generally holds a random selection of leaflets, and the Tourist Information Centre in Church Square is another potential source.
