Overview & description
Curious About Hull is a pair of self-guided walks with a treasure hunt theme – looping around the better-known sights, as well as some of the more unusual and quirky ones, which combined make Hull a fabulous place to explore!
First Walk: Queen’s Gardens to Trinity Square (1.25 miles)
Explore the Old Town! From the tranquil Queen’s Gardens and a towering statue of William Wilberforce, this walk passes the impressive Guildhall buildings, before snaking its way around lanes such as Land of Green Ginger and Bowlalley – giving you glimpses of the River Hull and dramatic museums - before curving its way around the splendid church of the Holy Trinity, to end at Trinity Square and its nearby bars and eateries.
Second Walk: Trinity Square to Minerva Pier (1 mile)
From the old feel of Trinity Square and Posterngate you are taken into modern City Square with its ancient excavations, impressive halls, museums and galleries, and contemporary shops. Next walk alongside a man-made lake with a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from, before skirting the marina with its diverse collection of colourful boats, to end at a pier with superb views across the bustling Humber!
Each booklet gives you everything you need - detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers if needed!), and fascinating stories about Hull’s history. We also provide ideas for other attractions and things to see and do along the way.
If you're naturally inquisitive (we would say curious...), and like having fun, both walks are immensely entertaining – but if you want to ensure you capture everything around you, just add in the Treasure Hunt to ramp up the fun. Follow the directions, and keep to the map! Children find them hugely enjoyable. Younger children (primary school age) should always be accompanied by an adult who will get actively involved - you can give them a specific role, eg matching pictures to clues, finding the answers, or managing the map, etc.
