Hull Yorkshire's Maritime City Project

As Yorkshire’s maritime city, Hull is now developing an extensive redevelopment of its significant historic maritime assets, building upon the legacy of its tenure as the UK City of Culture 2017 in support of its aspiration to create a world class visitor destination.

The sites included within the project are -

  • Hull Maritime Museum
  • Dock Office Chambers on Dock Office Row
  • the North End Shipyard
  • the Arctic Corsair
  • Spurn Lightship

Over the last two years a project was developed and a funding bid submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund. That project explores and celebrates Hull’s remarkable maritime history and heritage and puts that heritage at the heart of a place shaping project that will preserve several significant assets and move Hull forward as a world class visitor destination. This grant of £15m in a project of £27.M will ensure that Hull’s Maritime History is well preserved and celebrated by everyone.

This heritage driven, transformational project draws on Hull’s unique spirit and sense of place, and will be a central part of the legacy of the City of Culture 2017, It will focus on the promotion and protection of Hull’s maritime history, architecture and collections.

Over the next seven years work will be undertaken that will place our Maritime Heritage at the heart of our city offer.
