On a nostalgic visit to my home town, of Hull, up from the South, I was, again pleasantly surprised with what this often maligned city has to offer - and most of it free. The Arctic Corsair is a trawler from the 1960s, and is a moving testimony to the brave men who sailed her in icy seas in harsh and dangerous conditions. They had to buy their own equipment, and their pay depended on the size of the catch and prices of fish on returning to port.
Volunteers guide the tour and are well informed and entertaining. I felt slightly ashamed that I knew so little about the heart of Hull in the 60s, when I was growing up in a comfy home in the suburbs and being educated at the posh convent in the city.
Don't miss this! Not open every day though so check first.
