On foot

Hull is a flat city and with everything in such easy reach it is perfect for walking. Try the Walkit App to find the best routes around the city.

By Bike

Hull is located at the start of several national bike routes. The city is flat and well serviced for cycling with a Bike Hub at the interchange and a large network of on road and off road cycle paths.

By Train

Hull Paragon Interchange is the main railway station in Hull, which sits in the very heart of the city. Hull has its own rail link to the capital, so if you’re travelling here from London and the south then we’re essentially on your doorstep. First Hull Trains run several services a day, seven days a week from London Kings Cross to Hull; have a look at their website to see timetables, live departures and buy tickets. Virgin Trains East Coast run regular services too, connecting Hull to the capital via Grantham and Newark North Gate. If you’re heading to Hull from the west there are direct train services every hour with TransPennine Express from Liverpool, Manchester, Huddersfield, Leeds and lots of other places too.

A busy taxi rank operates outside the station, and the bus station is under the same roof at Hull Paragon Interchange.

By Bus / Coach
You can catch the coach to and from Hull, with services running all over the country to Paragon Interchange. National Express will have you in Hull from London in under 6 hours by coach. Megabus also run a service where you can catch the train from Kings Cross St Pancras to East Midlands Parkway, and then a bus over to Hull.

A little bit closer to home, EYMS operate buses throughout East Yorkshire and into North Yorkshire, bringing passengers into Hull from York, Bridlington and Scarborough.

By Car

If you’re heading over to us from Liverpool, Manchester or Leeds in the west, just get onto the M62 and keep on going until it turns into the A63. That’ll take you along the north shore of the Humber to our front door.

If you’re coming up from London and the south you can take the A1 and and come off at Newark-on-Trent (or Doncaster if you fancy) then head north east. Taking the A15 east of Scunthorpe will then bring you over the Humber Bridge and into Hull from the south. The Humber Bridge is a toll road, but travelling across it is worth it for the view alone.

If you’re driving from Scotland and the north you can head down the A1 before joining the M62 eastbound after Leeds, or come off at York to travel into Hull via beautiful Beverley.
