Maritime Guided Tours get underway for 2024

Maritime guided walks celebrate Hull’s maritime history.

Hull’s maritime guided tours will restart during the half-term school holiday from Saturday 10 February.

The group of 17 volunteers, who are White Badge accredited tour guides, will lead the free guided tours exploring our maritime city.

The tours will take place every Thursday and Saturday, at 10.30am along with a Sunday morning walk at 11.30am and Sunday afternoon at 1.30pm.

Starting at the Museum Quarter gardens, outside the old Arctic Corsair unit and the Hull and East Riding Museum, the full route begins at 10.30am and 11.30am, lasting approximately 2.5 hours.

The tour stops at the future home of the Arctic Corsair at North End Shipyard, Queens Gardens, the exterior of the Maritime Museum and the new home for the Spurn Lightship in Hull Marina. Other key landmarks include Blaydes House, Trinity House and Hull Marina.

The shorter route takes place on Sunday afternoons at 1.30pm, lasting around 1.5 hours and covers half of the full route.

In 2023, the maritime guided tours saw a 50 per cent increase in visitors with more than 660 people taking part.


**Although booking your free place is recommended, there may be a small number of places available on the day.**

Tours are subject to volunteer availability.
