OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES NEAR HULL
One of the great things about our hotel in Hull is the countryside is literally at its doorstep. It’s in an idyllic spot for anything nature related – surrounded by beautiful coastline on one side, the Yorkshire Wolds to the East and the North York Moors National Park only a small drive away.
So whether you are staying a day, 2 days or a long weekend there are plenty of things to be doing outdoors whilst you are here. To try and simplify the vast amount of choices you have at your disposal here, we have created a selection of activities that will match the level of exercise you want.
For our casual walk we have chosen a short circular walk along the coastline. What is great about this walk is the amount of landmarks and beautiful buildings you get to see in such a short distance. The walk is a mere 3 miles long and you will enjoy views of the lagoon and views of the wide Humber Estuary. To top it off there is also an old fort and the Paull lighthouse.
The Bempton Cliffs are one of the UK’s best wildlife sites and springtime is the best time of year to come and visit. Over 200,000 birds are currently returning from their winter travels to nestle in around the stunning cliffs. This walk really has everything, from cliff-top paths to the wildlife to the sound of the waves against the cliffs. This is a RSPB site so if you aren’t a member there is a small fee to access the reserve but most definitely worth it.

This next walk is not one you can complete in a day, even weeks or months. Stretching from the East coast to the West coast, the Trans Pennine trail is a huge one. With a big section it located around Hull and East Yorkshire this is one of the best walks in the UK. The great thing about it is that it is 70% purpose-built for walking. Enjoy walking along canals, rivers, disused railways lines and urban walking paths. With some stunning scenery and countryside along it this is not one to be missed!

Our final walk trail is the Seven Seas Fish Trail that is a great one for the kids too. This particular trail involves both exercise and fun by having to find all 41 pieces of sculpture along the way. The various sculptures represent 41 different species of fish and are all the actual size of the living fish. They range from very small anchovies to huge ray fish. So you are getting three things out of this walk: exercise, fun and learning. For further details click here
