EXPLORE EVERY ANGLE…

… #nofilter needed, these beauties are Instagram-ready

Have you even *been* to Hull if you haven’t shown it off on your Insta?! We think our city looks pretty good and we love seeing it through your lenses, too. Use the hashtag #VisitHull and tag us @visithulluk

Here’s a little tour of some of our favourite photography locations:

1: Queen Victoria Square – home to some truly impressive architecture in the shape of the Maritime Museum, Ferens Art Gallery and Hull City Hall. The fountains complete the look. HU1 3RA.

2: Paragon Arcade – a beautiful Victorian independent shopping arcade that has recently had a sympathetic revamp. HU1 3PQ.

3: Solar Gate, Queen’s Gardens – this public artwork by artist Tonkin Lui acts as an enormous sun dial to mark significant dates in Hull’s history. HU1 3DJ.

4: Land Of Green Ginger – home of Hull’s most-photographed street sign, the country’s smallest window and one of Hull’s greatest unsolved mysteries – how did this street get its unusual name? HU1 2EA.

5: Hepworth’s Arcade – a rare, L-shaped Grade II-listed Victorian shopping arcade with a gorgeous glass roof and great independent shops. HU1 1JU.

6: Prince Street – this unusually curved colourful Georgian street always attracts attention. You’ll find it between Princes Dock Street and Trinity Square. HU1 2LJ.

7: Hull Minster and reflection pools, Trinity Square – get the angle right and you’ll capture the Minster and its reflection in the mesmerising ripple pools in one shot. HU1 2JJ.

8: The marina – the Hull riviera. There are no bad shots on a sunny day, if the weather’s not cooperating, take your snap from one of many nearby cafes and restaurants. HU1 2DQ.

9: Humber Street – the beating heart of Hull’s revitalised Fruit Market. Full of independent shops, galleries, bars and restaurants, and a key location of Hull’s festival summers, it takes a great photo. HU1 1UU.

10: Voyage by Steinunn Thorarinsdottir this striking statue by Icelandic artist Thorarinsdottir faces out to sea in the direction Hull’s trawlermen travelled. It has a counterpart, For, in the Icelandic village of Vik, which faces Hull. HU1 1UU.
