Details

There is much to see in the maritime city of Hull, from all the attractions of the lively and colourful waterfront to the historic heart of the Old Town. Standing dramatically at the confluence of Hull's two rivers, the Hull and the Humber, The Deep has become an icon for the city. Visitors flock to see the fantastic underworld of weird and wonderful sea creatures, including huge sharks, and The Deep is also an important centre for environmental and marine research.

The Museums Quarter brings together four museums in the historic heart of Hull, including the Hull and East Riding Museum, Wilberforce House, birthplace of the famous slavery abolitionist William Wilberforce, Streetlife! Hull's transport museum and the Arctic Corsair, a 1960s sidewinder trawler, where visitors find out what working at sea is really all about. The Ferens Art Gallery also reflects Hull's seafaring heritage with works by Flemish Old Masters and a fascinating maritime art collection. Hull is home to John Godber's Hull Truck Theatre Company, one of the country's leading contemporary theatre companies, and annual festivals here range from jazz to sea shanty to literature.

Just outside the city, spanning the Humber estuary, is the spectacular Humber Bridge which, when it was built, was the largest single span suspension bridge in the world. From one end to the other, it is just under 1.5 miles long. Walk, cycle or drive across the bridge just for the thrill of it, and then, at the Tourist Information Centre you can watch a video about its construction. The Humber Bridge Country Park has superb views across the estuary, a haven for wading birds and one of the most important bird feeding grounds on the east coast. Also nearby is Skidby Windmill, which now houses the Museum of Rural Life. At one time such windmills were dotted all over the Wolds landscape, but this is now the only surviving example.
