Yorkshire’s only waterfront city boasts an array of attractions, from artisan shops and lively cultural events to inviting restaurants and pubs.
Follow the River Humber in the northeast of England through the county of East Yorkshire, and you’ll find Hull, a bustling maritime city with bags of personality.
The city’s waterfront has a fresh, revitalised feel, while still maintaining a strong link with its heritage as a trading port for the North of England.
Venture into the city’s old Fruit Market and you might stumble upon the Humber Street Sesh, a festival of local art, comedy and music. While here, pay a visit to the Oresome Gallery, where you can design your own jewellery.
If you’re feeling hungry, sample the menu at 1884 Dock Street Kitchen, whose handsome wood panelling and quirky antiques transport visitors back to the Victorian era. Afterwards, pop into the Minerva for a drink, a former fisherman’s pub with enviable riverside views.
From London, Hull is a 2 hour 30 minute journey by train.
