HULL OLD TOWN,
Do you know your Georgian from your Edwardian? In Hull’s Old Town, there is evidence of many period throughout history. With many original features it is clear that Hull has a significant place within British history. Hull’s Old Town is a hidden treasure where you will discover Hull’s collection of free museums including Streetlife Museum of Transport, where all the family can climb aboard a tram or take a carriage ride into the past, and Hull and East Riding Museum of Archaeology where you’ll find a life-size woolly mammoth. It is also home to Hepworth Arcade where Mr Marks and Mr Spencer had one of their first penny bazaars! There is also a strong link between Hull Old Town and the English Civil War with the alleged plotting parlour at Ye Olde White Harte and the actual spot at which Charles I was refused entry to the city of Hull – Beverley Gate, as well as the world’s smallest window the George Hotel.
