Learn about Hull’s historic pubs on the Hull Ale Trail

Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire

Venture into Hull’s Old Town amidst cobbled alleyways and staithes and join Hull’s Ale Trail.

This inspired trail takes you to some of the oldest pubs in the city which include the George Hotel – home to the smallest window in England. Ye Olde Back Boy is Hull’s oldest pub dating from 1377 and Ye Olde White Harte is Hull’s most historic pub. Allegedly, this is where the Civil War started when Charles I was turned away from the city by Parliamentarians, leading to the Siege of Hull in 1642.

Why not stop for a spot of lunch at The Mission, formerly a seaman’s mission which among some of its features includes a library, many old books and stunning stained glass windows offering a poignant reminder of its religious past.
