Beyond City of Culture 2017…
Up and coming city
Whether you’re after exciting history, eclectic shopping or entertaining nightlife, Hull has everything you’re looking for. This up and coming waterfront city has reinvented itself into a destination that combines its rich heritage with a new and vibrant social scene. And it’s waiting to be rediscovered.
Round the clock attractions
The heart of Hull and the historic Old Town are buzzing with activity from dawn ’til dusk. By day you can soak up the sights and explore its maritime heritage on the innovative fish trail – ducking and diving past free museums, family attractions and bustling boutiques. And by night you can catch the city’s second wave as it comes alive with the laughter and excitement of diners and theatregoers, all dressed up for some after-hours fun.
Making an entrance
There’s no better entrance to Hull than the impressive Humber Bridge. A major tourist attraction in its own right, crossing this magnificent suspension bridge is an experience not to be missed. But your impressive welcome doesn’t stop there. Hullensians are a friendly bunch and never miss an opportunity to make you feel at home, whether you’re staying at a country house hotel, local B&B or just here for the day.
Hull Old Town
As the city’s tour guide, Paul Schofield, often states when taking groups around “don’t forget to look up, there’s so much to see” and this can be no truer than when exploring the cobbled streets of Hull’s Old Town, dominated by the beautiful architecture of the buildings along them. The old High Street is home to the Museums Quarter offering a variety of fascinating museums which form part of Hull’s collection of eight free museums including The Streetlife Museum of Transport.
Hull and the surrounding rural countryside can be easily reached from the course venue. The local tourism board has arranged some good value packages for accompanying persons or those who wish to extend their stay.
