More about Hull
Hull was made the UK’s City of Culture for good reason – the Museum Quarter in Hull’s Old Town is home to fantastic exhibitions at the Hull & East Riding Museum and the Streetlife Museum of Transport. Closer to the city centre you’ll find the Hull Maritime Museum and Ferens Art Gallery, which are only a short walk from our Premier Inn Hull City Centre hotel across the Scale Lane swing bridge. You can also find sharks, penguins and other amazing sea life at The Deep, one of the UK’s largest and most spectacular aquariums on the Old Town’s riverfront.
There are great natural spaces and parks in Hull, and particularly beautiful views of the River Hull and the Humber Estuary along Hull’s embankments. Victoria Park is great for picturesque riverside views, and there’s plenty to do in East Park, which has a zoo, a boating lake and hosts lots of other fun activities. Further along the River Humber is the Humber Bridge, an iconic 2km suspension bridge that links Yorkshire to Lincolnshire.
William Wilberforce, a politician who dedicated his life to ending slavery in the 18th century was born in Hull at Wilberforce House. Wilberforce House now forms part of the Museum Quarter, and the house is an open exhibition of Wilberforce’s vital work and his mark on history.
