Car Hire in Hull

This city in the East Riding of Yorkshire rests upon the River Hull, at its confluence with the Humber estuary, 25 miles inland from the North Sea. It is the principal port of England's east coast, with an economy that grew up initially around wool, wine, whaling and fishing, but later developed as an industrial centre.

Yet, recently, a lot has changed in Hull. Named as the UK City of Culture 2017, the town has seen some wonderful redevelopment of its waterfront and old town districts. There has been a cultural renaissance in its Fruit Market area, around Humber Street, as derelict buildings have been reclaimed as artists' studios and performance spaces.

There’s still plenty of industrial heritage on display alongside some fine Victorian civic architecture. These are joined by the new cultural spaces, a clutch of fascinating museums and one of Britain's best aquariums. The Deep aquarium is housed in a stunningly futuristic building with an underwater viewing tunnel and hands-on displays. In the old town’s Museums Quarter, the Streetlife Museum focuses on modes of transport, while Wilberforce House, the birthplace of William Wilberforce, documents the abolition of the slave trade.

While there’s much to explore in the city itself, when you hire a car in Hull you’ll find a number of other attractions within very easy reach if you rent a car.

Where To Visit When You Rent a Car in Hull

With the East Riding and the rest of Yorkshire an easy drive away you won’t be short of places to visit.

It’s a 40-mile drive to the medieval city of York. Huge 13 th century walls surround an intricate web of narrow, medieval streets. At their heart lies the awe-inspiring York Minster, one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world.

There are many opportunities to learn more about York's long history and Viking heritage in its museums. Contemporary comforts are not forgotten either, with an array of shops, restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs.

Head north along the coast and Scarborough offers all the trappings of a classic seaside resort, but it is also reinventing itself as a cultural hub. Take its Victorian spa, which has now been redeveloped as a conference and entertainment centre. Or the sprawling former museum that is now filled with studio spaces for artists. And if you are travelling with kids, visit the vast new water park for some wet and wild fun.

Shellfish lovers should make the short drive to Bridlington, 25 miles north of Hull. Its sea fishing port and working harbour are highly rated locally for the variety of shellfish that is on offer here.

It takes just over an hour to drive west from Hull to Leeds. In the Victoria Quarter of this city you can shop ‘til you drop. Its home to the first Harvey Nichols outside of London, and its historic shopping arcades have been beautifully redeveloped. Within them you will find more than 70 luxury shops, with plenty of attractive cafes should those feet begin to ache.

Near to Leeds is Saltaire, a Victorian model village built by the philanthropist Sir Titus Salt for his mill workers. A Unesco World Heritage Site, its small terraced cottages cluster around Salts Mill, which houses one of the world’s largest collections of Hockney artwork.

Other Yorkshire attractions to consider when you hire a car in Hull include Yorkshire Sculpture Park (for your fill of Henry Moore), Farndale Daffodil Walk (to wander lonely as a crowd) and Whitby Abbey (for its brooding sense of gothic menace).

And, of course, there’s miles and miles of those Yorkshire Dales.
