Public Transport

The Hull Paragon Interchange is a massive transport hub in the city centre, where you can switch between local buses, trains and coaches all in the same place. Buses go to the campus from here every 10 minutes or so.

To get out of the city, there’s a direct train service to London that takes less than 3 hours, Birmingham is only 2 ½ hours and York or Leeds just an hour on the train. There are daily ferry crossings from Hull to Belgium and the Netherlands and from Humberside Airport you can reach destinations across Europe.

Shopping

As a busy cosmopolitan area, there is some great shopping. There are three large shopping centres near the campus: Princes Quay, Prospect Centre and St Stephens, all of which are massive. For all the rest, the Newland Avenue area is only a short walk away and covers all your essential shops, bars, and a good variety of food outlets.

Galleries 

If you are into art then Ferens Art Gallery should be high on your to-do list, with highlights from renowned artists such as by Lorenzetti, Frans Hals, Antonio Canaletto, Frederic Lord Leighton, Stanley Spencer, David Hockney, Helen Chadwick and Gillian Wearing.

Museums

Hull's Museums Quarter is in the Princes Quay which is the older section of the city and holds great historical significance as a merchant port and the home of William Wilberforce who famously worked to see slavery abolished in the UK. Make sure to check out Wilberforce House, Maritime Museum, the Hull and East Riding Museum and Streetlife Museum.

Theatre & Cinema 

There are three or four cinemas in the city, mostly within an easy walk of the main student hangouts, as well as a couple of theatres. Hull New Theatre hosts most of the bigger shows, while the Truck Theatre is a little more quirky in its taste.

Music & Comedy

For live music and comedy shows, the Hull City Hall pulls in big names all year round. The New Aldelphi Club is an iconic music venue, and if you are into seeing some great live music gigs you must keep an eye on their schedule.
