It’s a Hull of a Catch The lush undulating farmland of East Yorkshire meets the sea at its capital Hull – the cosmopolitan port has gone through an amazing transformation. On a fun and fact-filled walking tour we explore the vivid history and fascinating maritime past of this oft forgotten county. Our excursions include an engrossing tour of Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, a visit to Burnby Hall and a seaside trip on Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway to include a tempting lunch of good old traditional fish and chips! PACKAGED ITINERARY Day 1 Arrival We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner. Day 2 Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, Fish & Chips & Cleethorpes This morning we step back in time to experience the height of the fishing industry in the 1950s at Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre . The interactive exhibitions give a vivid picture of the everyday dangers faced by trawlermen and we board the magnificent Ross Tiger, thought to be the oldest side-winder fishing trawler in the UK. We then hop on a historic miniature railway for a 45 minute return journey along the picturesque Humberside Coast with the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway . The trip includes a delicious lunch of fish and chips plus a visit to the smallest pub on the planet! In the afternoon, we enjoy free time to relax in the Victorian seaside resort of Cleethorpes. Day 3 Burnby Hall Gardens & Beverley Today we head to Pocklington for a visit to Burnby Hall Gardens often referred to as “a jewel in Yorkshire’s crown”, home to a national collection of over 80 water lillies, across both upper and lower lakes. The walled garden project was completed here in 2022. We have time afterwards in Pocklington itself, a delightful town with two art galleries, an acclaimed arts centre and a host of independent shops. On our way back to our hotel, we stop off in Beverley for the afternoon. A traditional thriving town with a 13th century minster standing tall above the rooftops we find a bustling marketplace, boutique shops and historic pubs which are sure to make for a lovely afternoon. Day 4 Hull & Walking Tour In the morning we embark on an informal walking tour of Hull’s compact historic quarter. We wander through the cobbled streets and alleyways, flush with Georgian buildings and rich in reminders of Hull’s fascinating past, as our knowledgeable guide acquaints us with tales of its maritime history, architecture and famous characters. In the afternoon we enjoy time at leisure to soak up the atmosphere and further explore the vibrant mix of culture and shopping this revitalised waterfront city has to offer. Take a stroll along the marina, amble through the eclectic museum quarter and visit Wilberforce House Museum, birthplace of the MP and antislavery crusader William Wilberforce. Day 5 Departure After breakfast, we make our way home.
