Food and Drink Tour

If you are planning a weekend trip to Hull this is for you! Whether by cycle, car or train you’ll need somewhere to stay, places to see and shows to go to and most importantly, places to eat and drink. Firstly, you need somewhere to stay. If you haven’t yet decided where to stay, this is for you. Backpackers, serviced apartments, affordable hotels or staying in the lap of luxury, Hull has it all!

So you are coming to Hull to see one of our top theatre shows. Why not book for a pre-theatre dinner or drink?

If you are not having breakfast in your hotel, then this is a perfect opportunity for you to head down to the Marina and enjoy breakfast at one of our scrumptious independent eateries such as Thieving Harry’s or Nibble.

After breakfast, you can enjoy exhibitions at Humber Street Gallery or take a visit to Hull’s famous aquarium, The Deep.

If museums are your preference, head up to the Museums Quarter and enjoy free admission.

Feeling ready for a cup of freshly ground coffee or loose-leaf tea? Hull is blessed with an array of independent coffee and tea houses.

When you are ready for more sightseeing, head over to Trinity Square, where you will find the magnificent Hull Minster and enjoy the opportunity to join a Hull Minster Tower Tour, the perfect vantage point to see the best view of Hull’s skyline.

You now have options where to have lunch. You can enjoy a range of street food in Trinity Market and if the weather is kind, eat al fresco while watching the mirror pools in Trinity Square. Looking for something indoors? Then you are within five minutes walking distance of some of Hull’s cafe’s, bars and restaurants

If you are feeling particularly energetic, join Paul Schofield, an English Heritage Accredited Tour Guide, or one of his knowledgeable team and take a stroll around the historical streets of Hull and discover the city’s rich heritage and beautiful architecture. Perhaps you could take a leisurely stroll towards Queen Victoria Square to visit Ferens Art Gallery which hosts a magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures, including works by European Old Masters, portraiture, marine painting, and modern and contemporary British art.

You’ve probably now worked up a thirst for a glass of wine or a pre dinner cocktail! We have so many amazing bars in the city centre. Discover them all here!

You must now be ready to enjoy dinner. Depending on what you’re looking for, we have something for every taste from Fine Dining restaurants to Classic Pub food, authentic Italian, Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Spanish cuisine – you name it, we‘ve got it here! 

There are so many entertainment options for you within the city centre on an evening from  Live Music at Hull City Hall or the Connexin Live, to having your ribs tickled at the Comedy Lounge, see the latest blockbuster film or find your way out of an Escape Room. 

Finally, that well earned nightcap at The Lexington Rooftop Terrace or Skyfall Restaurant & Bar to enjoy the nightscape of the city for a relaxing end to the day.
