Why

I was surprised an impressed by the port town of Hull whose official name is Kingston-Upon-Hull, but it does not go by that name. I think you’ll share my excitement as well when you visit, this small, but big town.

Where

Hull (Kingston-Upon-Hull) is located in the northeast coast of the U.K. It is a port town sitting on the River Hull. It’s pretty neat to see how low the water goes when tide is out. You can literally see the bottom of the river in places.

What To Do

Hull has some very cool attractions. My favorite though is just watching nature at work with the ebb and flow of the tide. Imagine the entire, well almost the entire river Hull disappearing and returning later. Here are some things to look out for when you visit:
The Old Town of Hull
Hull Maritime Museum
Hull Marina
Wilberforce Museum
Holy Trinity Church
Visit the ship Arctic Corsair
There are countless other items to see, just check the TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet links.
