Hull’s maritime guided tours will restart during the half-term school holiday on Thursday 24 February.
The group of 17 volunteers, who are now White Badge accredited tour guides, will lead the guided tours, exploring our maritime city.
The tours will take place every Thursday and Saturday, with a 10.30am and 1pm slot to choose from.
Starting at the Museum Quarter gardens, the full tours which run in the morning last up to 2 ½ hours and take in the future location of the Arctic Corsair at North End Shipyard, Queen’s Gardens, the exterior of the Maritime Museum and the future location of the Spurn Lightship in Hull Marina. Other key landmarks include Blaydes House, Trinity House and Hull Marina.
The shorter tours run in the afternoons, last up to 1 ½ hours and cover half of the full tour route.
Councillor Daren Hale, 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, as well as how the exciting maritime project will take shape over the next four years, creating a brand-new maritime experience.”
The free guided tours will take place from Thursday 24 February and booking is essential. Book here.
**Although booking your free place is recommended, there may be a small number of places available on the day.**
Tours are subject to volunteer availability.
