When you rent a car, Hull becomes much more than a city-break destination – you can use it as a springboard to see more of the north...
Hull is located in the district of the East Riding of Yorkshire in the north of England and boasts a wide range of historic and cultural sites of interest. These include the famed Humber Bridge, once the longest in the world, and the Museums Quarter, home to a wealth of unusual and exciting exhibitions.
With Hull's maritime history, it’s natural that these museums include the Maritime Museum and The Deep. The Streetlife Museum of Transport is also well worth a visit and as a family-friendly venue makes for a perfect place to take young children.
Once you've exhausted the museums take a trip to St Stephen's shopping centre for an enjoyable day browsing the latest fashions or book a show at the well-respected Hull Truck Theatre. There's certainly no shortage of things to see or do in Hull.
Of course this means getting around the area as quickly and easily as possible, so it's worth considering hiring a car. Hull car hire can make travel much less stressful and save you time and money.
Why not pick up a car downtown and explore the East Yorkshire area? Hull is a large and exciting city promising a wealth of new experiences to all who visit. A city well suited to road travel, and car hire provides a good opportunity to see as much as possible on your stay.
