Hull Old Town Tour (can be completed on foot or using your own coach. You don’t have to decide in advance. Just let Paul know on arrival.) Hull’s Old Town is a hidden treasure where its cobbled High Street is surrounded by reminders of Hull’s past. Enjoy this informal tour through Hull’s historic quarter, with its stunning architecture, wide expanses of water and absorbing anecdotes. Find out about Robinson Crusoe, “Land of Green Ginger” and the infamous plotting parlour in Ye Olde White Hart, where the English Civil War was allegedly plotted, visit the actual spot at which Charles I was refused entry to the city of Hull and swing by the nearby George Hotel to see England’s smallest window, to name but a few.

Pearson Park (Coach Only Tour) – Discover the Victorian grandeur in Hull’s first park, Pearson Park, originally known as the People’s Park. This 8-acre sanctuary retains many of its original Victorian features, including a perimeter carriage drive circling the, a serpentine lake and seven Grade 2 listed structures. This beautiful green space in the heart of the city was home to the acclaimed poet Philip Larkin, who lived in a house overlooking Pearson Park from 1956 – 1974. Larkin was heavily influenced by the city. On an autumn afternoon in the park, you can experience something of the atmosphere that pervades much of his work.
