Hull is a port city in England, founded circa 1200. You can read up more about this city here. I went there for an official purpose for a day and got to see around the city area for three hours.
Incidentally, Hull or Kingston upon Hull is also the ‘UK city of culture 2017’.
After my business visit, I had lunch at this Italian place called ‘Ask Italian’. Wonderful food, service and the view was great too.
What you see are the domes of the Hull Maritime Museum:
After the wonderful lunch, we went for a walk to the dock.
Where we stumbled upon The Royal Navy Memorial
and the Humber Estuary
Then we walked back into the city taking in the beauty of the place.
Hull Minster (Holy Trinity Church) – dates back to 1300.
It was a sunny day and couple of kids and some boisterous adults were playing in the fountain opposite Hull City Hall.
It was a wonderful afternoon for me – great food, good weather to walk, marvelous & beautiful ancient buildings and joyful folks. What I would have loved to do was explore more of this city (alas, there was no time) and visit the coast which is 30 kms from this city. Maybe some other time.
