About Hull

Hull, officially known as Kingston upon Hull, is a hidden gem located on the East Coast of England. This city, with its rich maritime heritage and vibrant cultural scene, offers a unique blend of old and new, making it an intriguing destination for those looking to explore its depths. Far from being just a gateway to the Yorkshire countryside, Hull has carved out its own identity as a centre of arts, history, and entertainment.

At the heart of Hull's cultural revival is the rejuvenated waterfront area, where the confluence of the River Hull and the Humber Estuary has played a pivotal role in the city's history. The waterfront is not just a scenic spot but also a testament to Hull's maritime legacy, best explored through the Maritime Museum. Here, visitors can delve into the city's past, learning about its fishing industry, merchant trade, and the pivotal role it played in emigration to the New World.

Hull's commitment to culture was nationally recognized when it was named the UK City of Culture in 2017, a title that spurred the regeneration of many parts of the city. One of the most striking symbols of this cultural renaissance is The Deep, one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, housed in a futuristic building that seems to emerge from the waters of the Humber. The Deep goes beyond being a traditional aquarium by offering an immersive journey through the world's oceans, highlighting conservation efforts and the importance of marine life biodiversity.

Exploring Hull's Old Town offers a journey back in time, where cobbled streets and historic architecture evoke the city's past. Landmarks such as the Hull Minster, with its stunning stained glass and ancient artifacts, provide a serene counterpoint to the bustling city centre. The Old Town's museums, including the Streetlife Museum of Transport and the Wilberforce House, the birthplace of William Wilberforce who was a prominent figure in the abolition of the slave trade, offer insights into the social and industrial history of the region.

Hull's artistic flair is evident in its vibrant street art scene, with murals and installations that transform ordinary buildings and alleyways into open-air galleries. Humber Street, once a fruit market, now represents the heart of Hull's cultural quarter, with galleries, boutiques, and eateries showcasing the best of local creativity and cuisine. The area comes alive during the annual Humber Street Sesh festival, celebrating the city's music and arts scene.

For those seeking entertainment, Hull's theatre and music venues, including the Hull Truck Theatre and the historic Hull New Theatre, offer a diverse program of performances, from cutting-edge plays to classical concerts. The city's universities contribute to a lively nightlife, with a variety of pubs, clubs, and music venues catering to all tastes.

Outside the city, the Yorkshire Wolds provide a stunning natural backdrop for outdoor activities. Just a short drive from Hull, this rolling countryside is perfect for walking, cycling, and enjoying the tranquillity of rural England. The nearby seaside towns of Bridlington and Hornsea offer traditional English seaside experiences, with beaches, promenades, and fish and chips shops.
