Thanks to it winning the UK City of Culture award in 2017, Hull is quickly becoming the northern capital of hip, with shiny new waterfront developments, artists' studios in the old town and trendy cocktail bars in the centre popping up at an astonishing rate. The port city lies on the banks of the Humber Estuary and is split by the winding River Hull, which flows into it. It's made up of a maze of handsome Georgian houses, terraces of Victorian workers' cottages and airy converted red-brick warehouses, once used for the city's wool and fishing industries. The city is flourishing, and Hull bed and breakfasts have always been the staple accommodation of choice for travellers. Throw in some fascinating museums, the odd gallery, and some fine eateries that celebrate seasonal Yorkshire produce, and you've got a splendid place for a weekend getaway.
It doesn't matter whether you are coming on a romantic weekend break or an attraction-laden family holiday, Hull bed and breakfasts have got you covered. Some are traditional family-run B&Bs whose charming retro interiors haven't changed much over the years and which offer a budget-friendly place to lay your head each night. Others have updated in recent years, transforming into boutiques that give the luxury hotels a run for their money. You can even find the odd waterfront development housed in a converted factory providing a trendy spot near the action. Whatever your taste and budget might be, finding your perfect bed and breakfast in Hull is easy using Expedia, which lists every property, with detailed descriptions and photographs. Just search by date, location and price, scan through each B&B and book in just a few clicks. Arranging your travels just got a whole lot simpler.
Guestrooms at Hull bed and breakfasts come in all shapes and sizes, but they generally come equipped with all the conveniences you need for a comfortable stay, like ensuite bathrooms, a flat-screen TV on the wall and a kettle for making hot drinks. If you need to catch up on a few work emails, there's often a desk and comfortable chair, and complimentary WiFi is a given. If you're driving to Hull, you could pick a B&B that has a free secure parking spot, while those bringing the kids can opt for a family-sized room. Some even allow you to bring your pets, so you don't have to leave your furry friend back home. Come daybreak, you can head down to the dining room to enjoy a breakfast spread, often including things like full English fry-ups, toast and marmalade, and pots of freshly brewed tea and coffee. If you're looking for something different, you could always choose a break in the other northern powerhouse, Manchester.
There's always plenty to do and see near your Hull bed and breakfast. If you're driving into the city, check out the impressive Humber Bridge – it stretches almost 2 miles across the estuary and was the longest in the world, when it opened. Being a port city, it's hardly surprising that many of the attractions are marine based like The Deep, an aquarium packed with sharks, stingrays and other creatures of the watery depths. Then there's the Arctic Corsair, a former deep-sea trawler that's been converted into a fishing museum, and the Spurn Lightship, one of the only lighthouses built atop a vessel. If spotting wildlife is your thing and you have the time, don't miss a ramble along the Bempton Cliffs to catch a glimpse of the nesting seabirds. Just remember to bring your camera.
