Hull Explorer

Hull Explorer Queens Gardens June 2017

 Start your adventure here, with Hull Explorer, the city's new hop on, hop off tour bus.

Running every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday all summer, from 22 July* until 3 September, you can experience the city from a new perspective.

Hop on board the open top bus and let the guide tell you the story of Hull and its landmarks, including:

  • Cenotaph
  • Queen Victoria Square
  • Wilberforce Monument
  • Museums Quarter
  • Hull Minster
  • The Deep
  • The Marina and waterfront

Adult day tickets are just £8, child day tickets are £5, and family tickets £21, with concessionary tickets (for students and those with concessionary bus passes) only £6.  Children under 5 travel for free.  No need to book your ticket in advance, just buy it from the bus driver.

There'll be six journeys a day, with each tour lasting about an hour and a half, although you can hop on and off all day - see the full Hull Explorer leaflet.

Are you interested in hiring the bus for a large group or event?  The bus and guide are available for private hires on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, plus evenings and out of the summer season.  Find out more about hiring Hull Explorer.

* From 31 August until 3 September Hull Explorer won't be able to serve stops at Drypool Bridge, the Tidal Barrier and Hull Marina due to road closures for the Freedom Festival, but there will be a temporary stop on Castle Street, near Holiday Inn.  There may also be delays as Castle Street is expected to be busy during the festival.  All other stops will be served as normal, including the Humber Quays stop.
