Things To Do: Hull

About Hull

If you are looking for a cultural and maritime destination in northeast England, you might want to visit Kingston upon Hull, or simply Hull, a city that lies on the north bank of the Humber estuary. Hull has a rich history as a port and a trading centre, and it was selected as the UK City of Culture for 2017. You can explore the city's seafaring heritage at the Hull Maritime Museum, which displays models, paintings, and fishing equipment from the Bronze Age to the present day.


If you're looking for some fun and exciting things to do in North Wales & Anglesey, you've come to the right place. Here are some of the top attractions and activities that you can enjoy in this beautiful region:

* Visit the Hull Maritime Museum and learn about the city's seafaring heritage, from whaling to fishing to trade. The museum is located in the former Dock Offices and is part of the Museum Quarter, which also includes the Arctic Corsair trawler and the Spurn Lightship.

* Explore the historic High Street and see the birthplace of William Wilberforce, a leading figure in the abolition of slavery. The redbrick house is now a museum that tells the story of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its abolition.
