Visitors to the East Riding of Yorkshire are spoilt for things to see and do during their holidays. While the northern county is best known for its outstanding natural beauty, it also serves as home to numerous fascinating attractions, spanning nature reserves, football stadia and shopping centres. Undoubtedly the county's most popular place for shopping is the colossal Princes Quay Shopping Centre in Hull. Thanks to its central location, Princes Quay is within easy reach of many of the best hotels in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Shop by the Seaside
Princes Quay is a building which sits beautifully on the coast, set within the docks of vibrant Hull. The building itself it propped up on stilts, hovering above Prince's Dock. The large windows of the shopping centre look out upon the water of Hull Marina and the docklands. Even the aesthetic of the shopping centre takes on a nautical theme, with floors being referred to colloquially as 'decks'.
Princes Quay Shopping Centre couldn't make life much easier for visitors. The mall is easily accessible by numerous forms of public transport, but there's also a 1,000 space multi-storey car park, just in case.
There's a large food court on the ground floor, and a whopping 10-screen cinema on the top. The shopping centre's myriad retail outlets occupy the other floors, all stemming from the building's central atrium.
