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 UK City of Culture 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

A substantial grant of £15m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and £10m from Hull City Council now means this £27m project will come to fruition and ensure that Hull’s maritime history is celebrated by everyone.

This project explores Hull’s remarkable maritime history and puts that heritage at the heart of a project that will preserve several significant maritime treasures and move Hull forward as a world class visitor destination.

This culturally driven, transformational project draws on Hull’s unique spirit and sense of place, focussing on the promotion and protection of Hull’s maritime history, architecture and its priceless collections.

Over the next four years, work will be undertaken that will place our maritime heritage at the heart of our city offer.
