Some say the history of the City of Hull is written on the walls of Hull Minster. With links to famous fathers of Hull’s industrial and fishing heritage, the Minster has played its part in local and national events. From the Charter of 1299 given by Edward I to form the city of Kingston upon Hull from Monks of Meaux Abbey, just north of the city to the events that kick started the English Revolution, Hull Minster has witnessed it all. These stories are retold by our tour guides as you walk through the Minster and the history of Hull.
Famous fathers, William Wilberforce, the Maister family and many more who have had far reaching influences in the world today and associations with Hull Minster.
At Hull Minster we have strong artistic roots with 700 years of cultural and artistic tradition. We encourage artists and performers as well as cultivating participation in the arts for city centre communities.
