Hull is instantly connected
to the rest of the world
With an international airport within twenty miles, luxury ferries to Europe, direct trains to London, and the Yorkshire Wolds, market towns and seaside retreats on our doorstep, Hull is instantly connected.
And yet despite as Larkin, Hull’s adopted poet, says it being easy to leave, you’ll find that everyone always returns thanks to our warm and welcoming ways.
The Yorkshire Wolds
The Yorkshire Wolds stretch across the East Riding and North Yorkshire. Just a short drive out of Hull you can find rolling hills, beautifully clear streams, and peaceful market towns and villages. The Wolds is known for stunning Yorkshire scenery, lending itself to walking, cycling trails and small cozy country pubs.
From tiny fishing villages to beautiful stretches of golden sand, the East Coast of Yorkshire is close enough for regular days out, with each part deserving its own visit. Bridlington is famous for its fish and chips and boat rides, while Robin Hood’s Bay is a popular choice for weekends away and cliff top walks. There’s something for everyone by the coast, but the sea temperatures are only for the most daring of visitors!
Located in the historic market town of Beverley, just ten miles from Hull School of Art & Design, Beverley Minster is one of the largest parish churches in the UK, and dates back to 1220 when the construction began. This masterpiece of Gothic architecture took over 200 years to complete and is still an active place of worship today for the community and the town’s visitors.
This iconic landmark connecting the north and south banks of the river Humber was opened in 1981, when it was the world’s longest single-span suspension bridge, a record it held for 16 years. It is a masterpiece of British engineering and a major attraction in its own right. You can cross the bridge on foot and enjoy the magnificent views of the river.
