If you’re heading over to us from Liverpool, Manchester or Leeds in the west, just get onto the M62 and keep on going until it turns into the A63. That’ll take you along the north shore of the Humber to our front door.
If you’re coming up from London and the south you can take the A1 and and come off at Newark-on-Trent (or Doncaster if you fancy) then head north east. Taking the A15 east of Scunthorpe will then bring you over the Humber Bridge and into Hull from the south. The Humber Bridge is a toll road, but travelling across it is worth it for the view alone – find out current toll charges.
If you’re driving from Scotland and the north you can head down the A1 before joining the M62 eastbound after Leeds, or come off at York to travel into Hull via beautiful Beverley.
Make sure you check your route on the AA’s route planner before you head off too.
Hull Paragon Interchange is the main railway station in Hull, which sits in the very heart of the city. Hull has its own rail link to the capital, so if you’re travelling here from London and the south then we’re essentially on your doorstep. First Hull Trains run several services a day, seven days a week from London Kings Cross to Hull; have a look at their website to see timetables, live departures and buy tickets. Virgin Trains East Coast run regular services too, connecting Hull to the capital via Grantham and Newark North Gate. If you’re heading to Hull from the west there are direct train services every hour with TransPennine Express from Liverpool, Manchester, Huddersfield, Leeds and lots of other places too. Book your train tickets direct and save over 50%* at www.tpexpress.co.uk and collect Nectar Points with every online purchase. * Terms and conditions apply.
A busy taxi rank operates outside the station, and the bus station is under the same roof at Hull Paragon Interchange.
By Bus / Coach
You can catch the coach to and from Hull, with services running all over the country to Paragon Interchange. National Express will have you in Hull from London in under 6 hours by coach. Megabus also run a service where you can catch the train from Kings Cross St Pancras to East Midlands Parkway, and then a bus over to Hull.
A little bit closer to home, EYMS operate buses throughout East Yorkshire and into North Yorkshire, bringing passengers into Hull from York, Bridlington and Scarborough.
Flights from across Europe and the UK land at Humberside Airport every day. Car hire is available at the airport, and the city centre is about a 30 minute drive away over the Humber Bridge. Stagecoach also operate the Humber Flyer bus service, which takes you directly into Hull from the airport.
Possibly our favourite way to travel into Hull, P&O operate ferry links between Hull and Northern Europe. Daily overnight trips sail from Rotterdam in the Netherlands as well as Zeebrugge in Belgium to Hull Ferry Terminal, taking passengers with cars as well as those on foot. Taxis from the ferry terminal into the city centre cost about £10, and a regular bus runs into the city from the Northern Gateway roundabout (about a 20 minute walk away from the ferry) costing around £2.50.
