Welcome to Yorkshire’s maritime city. Hull has over 800 years of seafaring history which tells the story of the city’s involvement in some of UK’s most notable historical episodes.
Hull is a revitalised city following the success of its stint as 2017 UK City of Culture and substantial associated investment in city infrastructure and programmes.
It has enabled us to lay foundations for the future and to change hearts and minds at the same time. The city is now poised to become a recognised part of the nation’s tourism and heritage landscape.
Over the next five years, the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City project will deliver the refurbishment and preservation of four historic maritime sites and two historic ships. Once completed, we will invite visitors to chart a course through Hull’s history, exploring the city’s connections and contributions to the UK and the world.
