Things to do
There’s plenty to do in Hull and perhaps unsurprisingly, the sea plays a large part in local culture. The impressive aquarium The Deep is definitely worth a visit, and the Hull Marina is packed full of entertainment including bowling, picturesque afternoon strolls and a variety of fantastic eateries.
For a taste of history, there’s the Old Town and Museum Quarter. The newly-reopened Ferens Art Gallery was one of the highlights of the City of Culture year, and even hosted the Turner Art Prize. Hull Truck Theatre is one of the most popular and acclaimed independent theatre groups in the country, and the city has a wide range of music venues to go with its proud history of pop music groups, including the Beautiful South and Everything but the Girl.
There’s also one of Hull’s most famous creations, the Humber Bridge. When it was completed, it was the longest bridge in the world and remains an incredible feat of engineering and source of local pride to this day.
