The appeal of the 2020 UK City of Culture extends far beyond The Deep aquarium and the cobbled Museum Quarter. Hire a car from nearby Humberside Airport or in Hull city centre and head inland to discover the best of East Yorkshire, including the undulating Wolds, dramatic North Sea cliffs and iconic Humber Bridge.
Humberside Airport (HUY) sits 20 miles (32 kilometres) to the south of Hull, on the opposite side of the Humber Estuary. There’s no railway station at this rural Lincolnshire airport, but car hire companies Avis and Europcar both have offices here, so hiring a car is a great option both for onward travel and wider exploration.
It’s a 30-minute drive north from the airport to Hull along the A15 and A63 – a speedy journey that takes you across the Humber Bridge into East Yorkshire. You’ll have to pay a toll to use the suspension bridge, but it won't break the bank – in fact, the price has gone down in recent years.
At Humberside Airport, the car rental offices are located in the arrivals area of the terminal building. Once you're ready to go, you'll need to collect your vehicle from the car park outside.
Car hire companies operating at Humberside Airport include:
Another option is to take the Humber Flyer shuttle bus from the airport (it operates Monday to Friday) and pick up your hire car in Hull city centre. There are booking offices and collection points at several locations, including Hull Paragon railway station, Holderness Road and Clive Sullivan Way. Whichever pick up destination you choose, remember to compare online in advance for the cheapest deals.
