Hull’s Maritime History Will Be Celebrated Through Additional Guided Tours

From Saturday 11 February, Hull’s maritime guided tours will resume during the half-term school holiday.

17 volunteers, who are accredited White Badge tour guides, will lead free guided tours around our maritime city.

In addition to Thursday and Saturday tours at 10.30am, there will be a Sunday morning slot at 11.30am and a Sunday afternoon slot at 1.30pm.

In the Museum Quarter gardens, outside the old unit and the Hull and East Riding Museum, the full tour begins at 10.30am and 11.30am and lasts approximately 2.5 hours.

During the tour, you will see the future home of the Arctic Corsair at North End Shipyard, Queens Gardens, the exterior of the Maritime Museum and the Spurn Lightship at Hull Marina. In addition to Blaydes House, Trinity House, and Hull Marina, other notable landmarks are located nearby.

In addition to the full tour route, there will be a shorter route on Sunday afternoons at 1.30pm, lasting approximately 1.5 hours.

142 tours were conducted by volunteers in 2022, involving more than 960 people.

Councillor Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “As part of the guided tours, you will discover some fascinating nuggets of information and facts about Hull’s maritime heritage.

“If you have lived in Hull for years or are new to Hull, you will learn something about our wonderful city. The walks will also provide you with all the latest updates from the maritime project, creating a brand-new maritime experience for Hull, our residents, and visitors.”

Justine Hunt, Hull Maritime volunteer and accredited White Badge tour guide, said: “A new year of Maritime Tours begins! It’s such a pleasure to introduce visitors to Hull to the stories from our past and tell of our future plans for development for the city.

“On our two-hour walking tours learn about Hull’s rich history and see at first hand what’s happening here in Hull. Prepare to be surprised!“

Despite the fact that booking your free place is recommended, there may still be a limited number of places available on the day of the event.
