Attractions and Places to Visit in Hull

Once you know your way around, there are dozens of visitor attractions to keep you busy. The Deep is one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, home to thousands of fish and a colony of Gentoo penguins. Continuing the marine theme, Hull also celebrates its maritime history with two floating visitor attractions that are both well worth a visit. The Arctic Corsair is a former deep sea trawler ship, now a museum dedicated to the history of deep sea fishing. The Spurn Lightship (permanently moored in Hull Marina) spent nearly 50 years guiding ships safely through the Humber estuary with its great light, and now houses its own museum too. There are many more attractions which will leave you breathless.
