If you recently saw the thousands who gathered along Hull’s river bank for a spectacular display of fireworks over the Humber on New Year’s Day, you’ll know the city has now officially begun a year of celebrations for the world to discover its vibrant scene of artists, innovations and talents – and perhaps it’s got you thinking about visiting this dynamic Northern city for yourself.
Whilst Hull may not have always been the first place that brought to mind culture, creativity and history, it won the title of the UK’s City of Culture 2017 beating the likes of Leicester and Dundee. From January to March the theme is ‘Made in Hull’, celebrating over 70 years of history from theatre and music to great architecture, focusing on the city’s innovations and contributions to the world to show visitors the hidden culture. Learn more about Hull’s poets, writers and musicians with plenty of events taking place throughout the city to welcome visitors from all over the globe.
The city has gone from strength to strength over the years and has everything from St Stephen’s Shopping Centre, to The Deep, one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world housed in a futuristic aluminium building. It is also home to a dynamic museum quarter and a brand new free gallery, Humber Street Galley.
Whatever you choose to do, a day trip to Hull is one not to be missed this year.
Woods Tours have a day trip to Hull or The Deep on Saturday 4th February 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.
