A two-day break
Two days should be a good amount of time to get a good feel for the city. The Campanile Hull Hotel is but 1km from the centre! Hull has a vibrant tradition of arts and culture and is home to several museums that are of national importance. The Museum Quarter, located in the heart of the Old Town, houses four prominent points of interest: Wilberforce House, the birthplace of the eponymous abolitionist, the Arctic Corsair, a museum ship, the Hull and East Riding Museum, which contains Britain’s largest surviving prehistoric logboat, the Hasholme, and the Streetlife Museum of Transport. Outside of this quarter, there are still other museums and attractions to visit, such as the Ferens Art Gallery, the Maritime Museum and the Deep, the world’s only “submarium”. Take a walk along the Seven Seas Fish Trail, which marks Hull’s fishing heritage through old and new parts of the city.
A week-long stay
For a longer trip, you can start by wandering around and admiring the number of modern art sculptures that have popped up around Hull in recent years. Spend some time relaxing around the Marina area and pay a visit to The Deep, a huge public aquarium that opened in 2002 as part of the UK National Lottery’s Millenium Commission project. The city also has three main theatres: the Hull New Theater, which opened in 1939 and hosts ballets, musicals, operas and children’s shows, the Hull Truck Theatre, established in 1971 and the Northern Theatre Company. There are various shows and performance to attend throughout the year.
A family holiday
Hull is a great destination for the whole family, as aside from the various attractions, there are many parks and green spaces in which to simply relax.
