About Hull

About Hull

Visit the revamped city centre, and you’ll be impressed by the fountains and lightings adorning Queen Victoria Square. Gape at the Italian-style plaza encompassing Hull Minster, the city's spectacular parish church, before checking out the art galleries, music venues, and modern bars set in the marina's formerly abandoned warehouses.

What to see in Hull

The cobbled and labyrinthine lanes of Hull's Old Town present a kaleidoscope of history. As you take in Hull's fascinating architecture, magnificent churches, and other historic landmarks, you realise why it's been named a 'UK City of Culture'. The city, founded in the 12th century by monks, is also said to be where the English Civil Wars started in 1642 – King Charles I was not allowed to enter Hull via the Beverley Gate. The gate was excavated in the 1980s and is on display in the Old Town.

Culture and history lovers could book a hotel in Hull to take advantage of its free museums. Check out Wilberforce House, where you’ll find out more about the man who helped end the slave trade in the UK; the Ferens Art Gallery; and the Hull and East Riding Museum. The Streetlife Museum is a must-see for its Victorian street scenes, old buses, cars, trolleys, and bicycles.

Visit The Deep, billed as the world’s only submarium. The aquarium, at Sammy’s Point at the confluence of the Humber Estuary and River Hull, houses thousands of marine creatures. You'll see several species of sharks, rays, the last pair of green sawfish in northern Europe, and vibrantly coloured tropical fish. Check out the Humber Bridge, a suspension bridge measuring 4,954 feet. While there, explore the 140-mile Viking Way walking trail. The route stretches from the bridge to Oakham, past a tidal surge barrier built to protect the Old City from high tides.

Where to stay in Hull

As Hull is a bit of a hidden gem, finding a cheap hotel in the city isn't difficult. Opt for a hotel along Humber Street to be close to the small art galleries and cafés housed in old warehouses, or for a unique experience, look for accommodations near the Land of Green Ginger Street in the Old Town.

History lovers may want to stay at a hotel, hostel, or apartment by Silver Street – you'll be close to Ye Olde White Pub, reputedly where the plot was hatched to deny King Charles I's entry into Hull. Anlaby Road in the city centre is also a great place to stay during your holiday in Hull; it offers easy access to the square and museums.
