Volunteers deliver guided tours showcasing Hull’s maritime heritage.
The Maritime Tours have been extended due to incredible interest and will now take place Mondays through to the end of December.
A small team of volunteers are delivering a maritime themed guided tour, showcasing Hull’s historic maritime sites around the city centre.
Volunteers are currently undertaking the accredited qualification – the Institute of Tourist Guiding White Badge award, which involves lectures and practical sessions.
As part of the guided tours, the public will discover more about Hull’s maritime heritage and how the exciting maritime project will take shape over the next four years, delivering a brand-new maritime experience. Stops will include the exterior of the Hull Maritime Museum, the future location of the Arctic Corsair at North End Shipyard and the exterior of the Spurn Lightship in Hull Marina.
Councillor Daren Hale, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to play a key role in developing Hull’s tourism offer, revealing the city’s maritime heritage.
“The guided tours will offer people the chance to find out more about the exciting future plans to transform some of our maritime treasures, thanks to our major funders – The National Lottery Heritage Fund.”
The pilot tours will support the volunteers in completing their training programme and once complete, plans will get underway to deliver further tours in the future.
