Morning

Museums quarter
A gem of Hull Old Town with a wealth of historical exhibits, taking you back as far as 235 million years, all in one place. Immerse yourself in the past by hopping on a tram, strolling down a 1940s high street or a turn on the carriage ride at the Streetlife Museum. Or browse the Hull and East Riding Museum’s fabulous collection and stand at the feet of a majestic mammoth, encounter peculiar Bronze Age warriors, and observe spectacular middle-age treasures.

High Street is the oldest street in the city. Throughout history, Hull has been a thriving port and the High Streets’ medieval street pattern is dotted with merchant homes, warehouses and pubs, including the home of MP and abolitionist William Wilberforce. The River Hull, running parallel to High Street, is linked using staithes or small narrow paths and a relic from days gone by when merchants unloaded their cargo from ships and moved it to nearby warehouses. This beautiful if slightly crooked street has made the perfect location for recent film and TV productions, including ITV’s Victoria and the 2019 comedy-drama film The Personal History of David Copperfield. Ye Olde Black Boy, one of the oldest pubs on High Street today, was formerly a pipe shop and brothel. Men who drank there were vulnerable to the local press gangs that roamed the south end of High Street looking to force men into the Royal Navy. Contrary to local stories, slaves were never sold on these premises.  .

Hull Minster

Lunch

Hull’s Historic High Street is lined with cosy pubs, providing the perfect rest stop for a hungry group.

Hull Minster Café

Afternoon

Visit a site as old as Hull itself. Standing for over 700 years, Hull Minster could be said to have the history of Hull written within its walls. Its marble font originates from around 1380 and was used to baptise William Wilberforce. Outside stands a statue of the great poet Andrew Marvell, another famous name with a connection to this place of worship.

Hull Minster offers a variety of different tour options to accommodate both small local groups and larger coach parties. Guided tours are available and encouraged for larger groups to appreciate the full heritage of Hull Minster. They usually take about 1 hour but can be longer if additional items are added to your tour, such as a Tower Tour.
