Just 20 miles from Kipling House Barn lies the historic city of Kingstown Upon Hull, or Hull for short, birthplace of Hull MP and slavery abolitionist, William Wilberforce.

Hull is Yorkshire’s only maritime city and boasts a host of tourist attractions for all ages.

History buffs will be enchanted with the Museums Quarter that is home to a variety of fascinating museums which form part of Hull's collection of eight free museums including The Streetlife Museum of Transport, Wilberforce House and the Arctic Corsair trawler. The Museums Quarter is situated in the heart of Hull’s Old Town that is characterised by cobbled streets, beautiful architecture, old warehouses, narrow lanes and hidden pubs.

Hull’s former fruit market has been regenerated and is an urban village and home to galleries, studios, independent businesses including Hull’s first gin bar and distillery and a range of restaurants catering for all tastes.The Fruit Market is situated in one of the city's most attractive locations, next to the Marina, Victoria Pier and the River Humber.

For sports fans, the former City of Culture (2017), boasts two professional rugby league clubs, a championship football team and a national ice hockey league side.
