Visitors give rave reviews to the Streetlife Museum of Transport, especially for family outings. This free museum is a pleasant 15-minute walk from the hotel, through the cobbled streets of Hull's Old Town. The museum celebrates motorized transportation with displays of trains, mass transit, trams, buses, and aircraft. Outside, visitors can explore an Icelandic trawler.
You can take a city bus or enjoy a leisurely 20-minute stroll to KC Stadium, home of the Hull City Tigers football club. It also hosts rugby and squash matches and popular music events for thousands of fans. While you are there, go local and try something from Hull Pie, an esteemed local maker of meat pies and tarts that are well worth a bite.

The 1.4-mile Humber Bridge spans the Humber Estuary and is the longest suspension bridge in the world with a pedestrian footpath. It connects Hessle, five miles west of Hull’s centre, with Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank. On a sunny day you can park at the north side, take the almost three-mile crossing to Barton and have a relaxing lunch. Then enjoy the stunning views on your return hike.
A local gem is the William Wilberforce House, birthplace of the influential abolitionist and social reformer. As member of Parliament for Hull during the early 1800s, Wilberforce led the charge for the successful abolition of slavery in the UK and its colonies. The museum explores the history of slavery, pre-slavery West African culture and enslavement in parts of the modern world.
