welcome to Hull

You’re in for a surprise studying in Hull

In Hull city centre you can find England’s smallest window, traditional pubs dating from the 1600s, free museums, galleries, unbelievable architecture and beautiful public spaces.

Hull boasts more art, music and theatre festivals than months in the year, and the redeveloped Fruit Market area (just around the corner from Hull School of Art & Design) boasts creative ventures from independent cinema, unique cafes, vintage fashion to jewellery making workshops.

The School of Art is situated in the heart of Hull overlooking the tranquil Queen’s Gardens, in our vibrant, energetic Yorkshire city; the tenth largest city in England.

You can drink and chill by the side of our beautiful marina situated close by, which offers some fantastic views and a chance to take in the relaxed atmosphere (unless there’s a festival on…and we have quite a few).

“As the famous poet Larkin put it, people are slow to leave, quick to return… a city that is in the world yet sufficiently on the edge.”
