In keeping with our monastic origins, and as a member of the Open Churches Trust, St Hilda’s welcomes visitors both to services and on Wednesdays 11.30 - 1.00 and Sundays from 11.30 am to 2 pm. As well as splendid architecture and a warm welcome, the church offers a Visitor Centre with modern display panels (some interactive) which trace the history and the church and the Headland through the ages.
Groups are welcome to contact us to arrange for a visit at any convenient time; guided tours and more substantial refreshments are available on request.
The other main attraction on the Headland is the Heugh Battery, which is only a few minutes’ walk away.
Make the most of your visit to Hartlepool!
