It’s worth an overnight stay in Hull if only to walk the splendid old-town streets and visit the art gallery. Our hotel, a Premier Inn, is quite basic, as you would expect, but it’s just fine. It’s on the edge of a trading estate so no great views, but it’s just a minute’s walk from the old-town.

Hull. It rained all day!

It rained all day in Hull and it was nigh impossible to take outdoor pictures. But I managed a couple, one of the soulless pier and one of the trawler that is now a museum piece.

After lunch at Ask , a pizza chain down by the pier, we visited the manageable Ferens Art Gallery. Of the three images I took in the gallery, the lady in blue is a particular favourite of mine and I make a point of visiting her on each visit to Hull.

The Old Town is easily the best reason for visiting Hull, with its interesting streets and buildings. There are also an amazing number of small, old pubs which I’m yet to explore. Ye Olde White Harte looks particularly interesting.
