The UK City of Culture 2017!
A visit to Hull is always the start of a great story. The cobbled streets of the city's Old Town transports visitors back to days gone by. Visit our Museums Quarter, home to some of our free museums, and plot Hull's course through the history books. Take time to explore The Deep as it whisks you down to the bottom of the deep blue sea and introduces you to its many inhabitants. New for 2014 - Gentoo Penguins have taken up residence in The Deep's new exhibit called ‘The Penguins of Grytviken’.
Why not take a stroll along Hull Marina and head for the retro Fruit Market area, home to the UK's only Museum of Club Culture, Dinostar, Hull's only Dinosaur Exhibition, amongst many art galleries, quirky shops and places to eat.
If shopping is your bag then you have your pick of all the high street favourites plus vintage boutiques, monthly markets and quirky independent stores.
Steeped in history with an exciting nightlife, a visit provides the perfect opportunity to sample all that this great city has to offer.
Don't wait until 2017 to find out more about our great city.
