Share your maritime stories!

We’re inviting you to share your untold stories and memories of Hull’s maritime past.

As part of the Hull Maritime project, funded by Hull City Council and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, people can tell their compelling stories and these will be added to our website, helping to showcase Hull as a maritime city.

Real life stories evoke memories and instigate discussion bringing people together as a community, as well as connecting people with the city’s rich history.

Robin Diaper, Curator of maritime and social history, said: “The stories, captured by the major maritime project, will reveal what it means to be ‘from Hull’ and the experiences of those who lived, loved and lost over the years. This is your chance to take part and share your stories with us. As the project progresses we will be working with people more on telling their stories within our new galleries.

You can submit your stories by emailing them to
