Old Town

Old Town information

Lonely Planet review

Hull's Old Town, whose grand public buildings retain a sense of the prosperity the town once knew, occupies the thumb of land between the River Hull to the east and Princes Quay to the west. The most impressive legacy is the Guildhall , a huge neoclassical building that dates from 1916 and houses vast areas of polished marble, and oak and walnut panelling, plus a small collection of sculpture and art.
