Established in the 12th century, Hull lies on the banks of the Humber estuary.
A busy port, it’s also brimming with culture, with an entire area dedicated solely to museums. You can easily spend an entire day in the Museum Quarter perusing the different exhibitions and galleries. The Streetlife Museum of Transport displays re-created alleys from the Georgian and Victorian eras, while Wilberforce House has been turned into a museum all about the abolition of the slave trade. There’s also Hull & East Riding Museum and Hull Maritime Museum, to name a couple.
Hull’s top attraction is The Deep, a £45m aluminium building overlooking the Humber estuary. Inside you’ll find an aquarium and museum well worth exploring.
While you have your rental, make sure you drive across the magnificent Humber Bridge. Opened in 1981, the bridge is the second longest single-span suspension bridge in the world.
This is just a small taste of what Hull has to offer, but the best way to see it all is to tour the area. Shopping districts, parks, river cruises and much more are waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is drive.
