Hull is a major port in England. Many people just get off the boat here and immediately move on. It would be a pity. Hull has quite a few things to offer to travelers.

Officially known as Kingston-upon-Hull, Hull - as it is better known - is a city and port in Humberside, England, situated at the junction of the Hull and Humber rivers. It is linked to the south bank of the estuary by a bridge completed in 1981. Hull was the birthplace of the English philanthropist William Wilberforce.

The city centre has spacious pedestrianised shopping streets; distinguished public buildings, many recently refurbished; the Old Town, where Hull began about 800 years ago, offers narrow, cobbled lanes and quays; Holy Trinity Church, founded 700 years ago; 18th and 19th Century architecture; old waterside inns and a wide range of museums to which entrance is entirely free.

New leisure attractions in out historic dockland include an elegant yacht harbour, and Olympic-standard Ice Arena, a 34-lane 10-pin Bowling Centre and an extensive range of shopping facilities complementary to those in the heart of the City. There is also a satisfying variety of entertainment, theatrical and musical choice to meet the most demanding tastes - all brought together by many special events throughout the year.
