Walk in the footsteps of Phillip Larkin

Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire

Trace Phillip Larkin’s footsteps across the city of Hull where you feel that wherever he was, Larkin was simply 'here'.

Stretching across the city, through the suburbs and onto the hamlets and villages along the Humber Estuary, the Larkin Trail takes you on a tour of sites which were significant to Phillip Larkin, linking different aspects of his life and work.

The acclaimed poet lived in a house overlooking Hull’s first Park, Pearson Park from 1956 -1974 and was heavily influenced by the city. On autumn afternoons amongst the Victorian splendour of the park you can experience something of the particular atmosphere that pervades much of his work.
