The full walk, without breaks, should take about two hours but it could take all day if you really want to get into the heart of our wonderful city.

We support the Hull City Council’s Be a ‘Smart Pedestrian’ campaign
The guide is full of fascinating information which takes you back over the centuries. However we cannot do the same for modern traffic! So please follow the guidelines mentioned in the audio and be aware at all times, of roads traffic and other pedestrians. We want you to observe the fine building and interesting alleyways you’ll pass on the way but please be equally observant of your surroundings.
