With stylish, modern properties based in the centre of Hull’s amazing Fruit Market, we tend to focus on this area’s offerings quite a bit. To rectify this, we thought it only fair to share a few of our favourite places that aren’t quite on our doorstep.
As the name suggests, this beautiful park is located in the east of the city. Delighting visitors for over 130 years, the 120-acre site is Grade II-listed by English Heritage and home to a fascinating wildlife sanctuary, playing fields, boating pond and various family-friendly facilities. It also hosts a range of annual events, such as the magnificent Hull Show and The Big Malarkey Festival.
Based just off the cobbled High Street, the Museums Quarter contains the Streetlife Museum of Transport, the Hull and East Riding Museum, Wilberforce House (where the celebrated MP and slavery abolitionist resided), and one of the city’s two floating museums, The Arctic Corsair. Already a brilliant destination for history buffs, families and anyone seeking a fun day out, this area is undergoing a seven-year redevelopment programme of £27 million under the extensive Hull City Plan.
Humber Bridge Country Park
Okay, this one’s technically in Hessle, but that’s close enough. The Humber Bridge Country Park boasts 21 acres of natural environments, which includes scenic trails, a bird-feeding station, creative sculptures and perfect spots for a picnic. The entire park is dog-friendly and you can easily spend an entire day here, especially when it’s sunny.
The University of Hull
Many visitors and residents alike don’t realise that the University of Hull campus on Cottingham Road has all sorts of attractions that visitors can enjoy. From an eclectic programme of events at Middleton Hall, to numerous eateries, a welcoming bar and plenty of green spaces, it really does make for a pleasant day out. Whilst there, be sure to pop into the art gallery in the Brynmor Jones Library, which presents a permanent collection and a seasonal exhibition space.
Hugely popular with students and a favourite for many Hull residents, Newland Avenue has reinvented itself over the last decade to become a hotspot for great food, quirky coffee shops, fabulous boutiques, and the go-to place for all of your weekly groceries. Even the street’s wooden planters are carefully looked after, often sporting outdoor art and even crocheted items, which have ranged from hearts for Valentine’s Day, to fluffy fish and chips.
