A top ten city to visit in 2016

Walk, bike or ride your way to Freedom

On foot

Hull is a flat city and with everything in such easy reach it’s perfect for walking. Try the Walkit App to find the best routes around the city. Our new festival map will be live soon, so you can plan your route around the event. There’s loads happening, so be prepared to wander.

By bike

Why not ditch the car and get on your bike? As Hull’s such a flat city it’s easy to ride your way around, and that way you’ll get to see more of your favourite shows taking place across the city. There’s a Bike Hub at the interchange  if you fancy hiring a bike for the day and plenty of cycle paths and bike parks to make it super-easy.
