Guided Tours in Hull
The city of Kingston upon Hull has played a leading part in British commercial and political life for over 700 years. Its early history as a royal planned town can still be seen in the streets of its Old Town, and its medieval wealth can be felt in the grandeur of its parish churches. Hull has proud stories to tell of its role in the Civil War and the Second World War; while its docks are rich in the history of international trade - in particular the trading of goods such as wool, wine, whaling, timber, coal and fish. The best way to learn about whole the history of the city is by going on a guided tour.
With twists and turns in this city revealing more mysteries and odd goings on, even the ghosts that haunt the town haunt each other.
The Blue Train roughly takes you on a 40/45 minute tour from the City Centre to one of the biggest tourist attractions on the east coast (The Deep) then to the Museums Quarter in the old town, then back to the City Centre on a loop.
