Hull's Old Town Walking Tour

Take a virtual tour.

The city of Kingston upon Hull has played a leading part in British commercial and political life for over seven hundred years. Its early history as a royal planned town can still be seen in the streets of the Old Town and its medieval wealth can be felt in the grandeur of its parish churches.

It has proud stories to tell of its role in the Civil War and the Second World War, while its docks mark a succession of international trading, from wool and wine to whaling, timber, coal and fish.

This walk is a taster of a booklet jointly produced by Hull City Council and Historic England to share the stories of this important European city as it celebrated its role as UK City of Culture 2017.
