Things To Do

Think you know Hull? Think again.

A host of free museums, galleries and trails offer culture on every corner, plus with rolling countryside and stunning coastal resorts right on our doorstep there is plenty for delegates to enjoy.

Hull has a trio of free museums located in the cobbled streets of Hull’s Old Town, discover the story of the transatlantic slave trade, take a ride in a historic mail coach and come face to face with a woolly mammoth!

Wilberforce House Museum

Streetlife Transport Museum

Hull & East Riding Museum

The birthplace of one of Hull’s most famous sons William Wilberforce MP, the house reveals the story of the transatlantic slave trade and its abolition.

Home to over 200 years of transport history spread across six galleries. This immersive world of bicycles, carriages, motorcars, railways and street life through the years is a visitor attraction not to be missed.

Journey through 235 million years of history. From a face-to-face encounter with a woolly mammoth to appreciating the beauty of the stunning mosaics within a Roman bathhouse, the museum displays show what it would have been like to live in the region throughout time.

The Deep Visitor Attraction is a conservation centre and aquarium home to over 5,000 fish, including sharks, rays, turtles, and even a colony of Gentoo Penguins.


A unique A – Z trail of life-size fish set into the pavements of the city centre, celebrating Hull’s maritime past.

Now home to a thriving cultural quarter, head to the historic fruit market area for food, galleries, creative workshops and even a gin distillery. If the sun is shining, a walk around the Marina is a must.

Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space located at the heart of Hull’s Fruit Market with a continual programme of exhibitions all year round.

As the only UK city with two top-flight Rugby League teams, a home derby makes brilliant viewing even if you’re new to the sport.
