Discover Hull, the UK City of Culture 2017

Hull, East Yorkshire

With a cultural heritage that’s unique, quirky and eccentric, Yorkshire’s maritime city continues to impress.

Ambitious, inventive and creative, Hull is a city that’s always placed itself at the forefront of innovation. Bearing the proud title of UK City of Culture 2017, Hull continues to show off its finest colours to the world. 

Experience one of the North of England’s most exciting cities following the River Humber along Hull’s buzzing quayside, diving into maritime museums and exploring an eclectic array of shops. A highlight is The Deep – Hull’s biggest tourist attraction – a vast underwater world whose 10 metre (10 yard) deep aquarium is filled with sharks and stingrays. 

The city holds plenty of surprises and you never know what you might run into, from colourful toads inspired by the works of the poet Philip Larkin to cream-coloured telephone boxes. It’s also easy to reach, situated in the northeast of England just 2 hours and 30 minutes from London by train.
