MorningMorning

Hull Fish Trail - Discover 41 beautifully sculpted fish made from traditional materials in this impressive piece of public art. Artist Gordon Young created the trail in 1992 – representing the actual size of the fish with life-size pieces, from a tiny anchovy to a 10ft ray. His sense of humour surfaces with the placing of the plaice in market place, and an electric eel outside the electricity sub-station.

Arctic Corsair - Come aboard Hull’s last sidewinder trawler the Arctic Corsair and let the crew take you on a guided tour (access is limited). You’ll hear all about life at sea and the dangers deep sea trawlermen faced in the Icelandic fishing grounds. Our free guided tours are the only way to see inside the Arctic Corsair (please note restricted opening times below).

Before each tour starts you can watch a short 10 minute action film - Life at Sea - in the Arctic Corsair visitor centre (next to the Hull and East Riding Museum). You can also find out more about the Arctic Corsair.
