1. The Deep
The Deep is Hull’s fantastic aquarium. Famously known for its impressive architecture, this building has so many angles and looks. Even more than Spiderpig. An impressive view whatever the weather, maybe I am biased. Obviously, a sun set pic is always a favourite. Check out the couple of statues surrounding the deep entrance too, like the shark!
2. The Humber Bridge
You know you’re home when you see the Humber bridge from the train. One of Hull’s most iconic features. The San Francisco of the UK? Oh, we’ll take it. Bridges make better days, and better Instagram posts! Head down to the foreshore for even better angles and views from below.
3. Hessle Road
“Heads will roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Nahh mate, round here we sing “Hessle road” (try and unhear that now). Head down Hessle road to see some awesome graffiti murals. Celebrating Hull’s fishing history. These huge images remind us of Hull’s history in a celebratory and colourful way. This spot is perfect for those who love a bit of history on their gram.
4. City Hall
This is one of the beautiful buildings right in the heart of Hull. The whole square where the Hall resides is full of other stunning buildings and architecture. Don’t forget to look up!
5. The Marina
Make the most of the uniqueness of Hull as a coastal town. You can often capture beautiful sunset shots of the boats in the marina. Plus, the boats themselves are pretty cool, look out for the pirate ship.
6. Ferens Art Gallery
Host of the 2017 Turner Prize. The art gallery itself is just as beautiful as the art it presents inside.
7. Humber Street
Humber street is a perfect Instagram spot for all those who love a good graffiti wall pose. There’s a variety of hotspots to check out down the street. Be sure to check down every alleyway so you don’t miss the out of the way wall art that will add so much colour to your gram. A Hull instagrammable hotspot where you’ll “never yawn.”
8. Queen’s Gardens
If you want to add a touch of nature to your gram head to Queen’s gardens. This place is definitely best in spring and summer when all the flowers are out. Take a sandwich and sit on the grass. A beautiful lunch spot and a great Hull location to take advantage of.
There are many beaut and instagrammable spots in Hull. Another great aspect of Hull is that it isn’t too extensive of a city so you could even go visit a multiple of these spots in a day. Go check them out for yourself. I hope Hull surprises you, in a good way.
