The roots of the Port of Hull date all the way back to the Middle Ages and its strong maritime culture stands to this day. Two of the largest passenger ferries in the world are regulars at this port and its position makes it an ideal homeport for cruises to Europe and the Baltic. Located in East Yorkshire with fully enclosed docks and a port less than 30 kilometers from the Humber Estuary, Hull is an excellent port for domestic European cruising.
Hull is home to some amazing places, and one stands out from the rest, The Deep. This gorgeous aquarium is the world’s only submarium and is home to over 3,500 fish and a family of penguins. The spectacular building allows visitors to get up close and personal with marine life by taking them underground and underwater. More Hull science and history can be found in the Historic Hull Old Town. The Museums Quarter inside has a multitude of exhibitions to explore including a chance to encounter sea monsters and a life-sized woolly mammoth. With the submarium and the entire museum district, exploring the museum scene is an amazing way to experience the port of Hull.
