Wilberforce House

Wilberforce House


Wilberforce House is the birthplace of William Wilberforce, Hull MP and slavery abolitionist whose campaign made the establishment of Freetown (Sierra Leone) possible. The story behind William Wilberforce's campaign is told through fascinating items including his journal, plantation records and personal stories.

Hull is the UK's city of freedom. William Wilberforce - was a leading light of the anti-slavery movement and the city's involvement with modern human rights issues continues today through the work of the Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation.
