Following almost a year of hard word, Hull has been announced as the “City of Culture” for 2017, but don’t wait until then to find out more about what this great city has to offer.
Steeped in history, the cobbled streets of Hull’s Old Town transports its visitors back to days gone by and offer exciting nightlife, stylish shopping destinations and historic cultural venues.
In the past few years Hull’s historic Fruit Market has been brought back to life thanks to a number of thriving new creative venues. With art galleries and live music, boutique markets and fine dining, this rather retro location is now a hive of activity. Situated next to Hull Marina it provides access to fantastic restaurants, traditional pubs and stunning views over the River Humber. Hull’s new pedestrian swing bridge connects the East and West banks of the River Hull, allowing pedestrians to step on and off the bridge whilst it is turning and gives easy access to the Museum Quarters where you can visit some of Hull’s free museums. Take time to explore The Deep, a spectacular aquarium, home to over 3,500 fish, including magnificent sharks and rays and offering a unique blend of stunning marine life.
If shopping is your bag then you have your pick of all the high street favourites plus vintage boutiques, monthly markets and quirky independent stores. St Stephen’s shopping Centre, Princes Quay and Whitefrairgate offer an abundance of shops to give the ultimate shopping experience.
After a hard days sightseeing it’s time for a well-earned rest, so why not enjoy a bite to eat at one of Hull’s superb restaurants, followed by a beverage or two in any of the many bars and pubs on The Avenues!
