Kingston Upon Hull

The Maritime Museum and Wilberforce House Museum are also fantastic places to spend some time and learn more about the area. Or, take a leisurely stroll around Hull Marina. No visit would be complete without a trip to the world’s only submarium, The Deep.

York

Interested in a day-trip? York is approximately an hour away and boasts the National Railway Museum, York Dungeons, the Jorvik Viking Centre, and a range of shops. For a touch of Old England, why not walk the old castle walls, have tea and scones in Betty’s, or visit York Minster, which dates back to medieval times. If you’re keen for some retail therapy, the boutique shops of the shambles are sure to provide it, as is the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet. If you’re travelling by car, the Park and Ride will ensure your day is hassle-free. If you prefer to travel by rail, you can catch the hourly service from Hessle station.
