A visit to Hull is always the start of a great story. The cobbled streets of the city's Old Town transports visitors back to days gone by when Hull was trading with the medieval Hanseatic League. Visit the free Museums Quarter where you can track Hull's course through the history books.
Hull is also blessed to be home to the spectacular aquarium - The Deep- home to a whopping 3,500 fish including a pair of Green Sawfish, sharks, rays and a colony of Gentoo penguins.
Why not take a stroll along the Marina to the retro Fruit Market, home to an abundance of new creative and cultural venues including the world's only Museum of Club Culture alongside art galleries, eateries and wine bars.
Hull Paragon Interchange is the main railway station in Hull, which sits in the very heart of the city. Hull has its own rail link to the capital, so if you’re travelling here from London and the south then we’re essentially on your doorstep. First Hull Trains run several services a day, seven days a week from London Kings Cross to Hull; have a look at their website to see timetables, live departures and buy tickets. Virgin Trains East Coast run regular services too, connecting Hull to the capital via Grantham and Newark North Gate. If you’re heading to Hull from the west there are direct train services every hour with Trans-Pennine Express from Liverpool, Manchester & Leeds.
A busy taxi rank operates outside the station, and the bus station is under the same roof at Hull Paragon Interchange.
If you’re heading over to us from Liverpool, Manchester or Leeds in the west, just get onto the M62 and keep on going until it turns into the A63.
If you’re coming up from London and the south you can take the A1 and come off at Newark-on-Trent (or Doncaster if you fancy) then head north east. Taking the A15 east of Scunthorpe will then bring you over the Humber Bridge and into Hull from the south. The Humber Bridge is a toll road, but travelling across it is worth it for the view alone.
If you’re driving from Scotland and the north you can head down the A1 before joining the M62 eastbound after Leeds, or come off at York to travel into Hull via beautiful Beverley.
