Lovely area within Hull to look around, generally clean and well kept. Parking is minimal but there are multistory car parks within walking distance. Plenty of little shops and the main highstreet shops aren't far. Also some lovely cafes and bars. Also has great nightlife.

I have been visiting Hull for several decades now and always makes sure that at least one tour of the Old Town is included, rain or shine (the former much more likely than the latter...!). If it's sunny it's a bonus, but even if it...More

Perhaps I'm a little bit biased, but I love the old town of Hull, the little streets and side alleys, also the fish trail goes round this area too. Look up, as the architecture is beautiful. Museums, restaurants, cafés and the Minster in this area,...More
