Travel and accommodation
Hull’s main train station is located in the City Centre and has a Taxi and Bus Station attached to it and so it is a very easy place to navigate your onward travel to the party from.
Getting to the wedding venue is quite easy as it is not too far from the City Centre by Car, most cabs if not all will be able to take you directly to The University of Hull from anywhere in the city. From the city centre it’s about £7 and takes about 10-15 minutes.
Please note we do not have Uber in Hull so either grab a cab outside the front of the station or if you want to call a local cab Hull Cars are a good firm and are located close by their number is 01482 82 82 82, this might prove useful on the way back to your accommodation.
Taxi’s home / to hotel
For anyone planning on getting a taxi back to your hotel from the University after the Reception it can be a bit hard to get a cab late night on a Saturday and so we would advise booking them in advance through Hull Cars on 01482 828282.
A good place to tell the taxi to meet you is outside Middleton Hall at the University of Hull, this is a large venue located just inside the main entrance of the University Grounds.
From Hull Bus Station the Buses which travel from the station to directly outside the University are the 103 and the 105. The bus takes about 20-25 mins and costs around £1.70 each way. A return ticket is cheaper at about £2.50 and you can also get a group ticket for larger groups, the buses tend to take cash only and so please do carry cash.
For those who are driving…
Parking on-site at the University
If driving, it is good to know that Parking at the university on-site is free on the weekend and so you are welcome to park in any of the available spaces unless it is marked reserved. It is a huge site and should be easy to find somewhere to park.
Also, there is a mini multi-storey car park on-site, it is not free to park there though and I think it is about £5.
The address for your sat nav is…
Canham Turner Building, University of Hull, Cottingham Road, HU6 7RX
We have attached a link to the Booking.com search for hotels on the night of the event below to help save time and it has some great prices for that day on and so we are sure if anyone is needing to book accommodation they could find something cheap.
Most hotels in Hull are reasonably good, the Double Tree Hotel by Hilton is the best hotel in the city and is actually being advertised quite cheaply too, this hotel is also built on the site of where we first met too and so has a special history for us.
Holiday Inn Marina and Holiday Inn Express are also nice.
Also for a top tip, Hull Trinity Backpackers Hostel is an amazing little place to stay with a great host (Glenn) for anyone travelling as part of a group or looking for somewhere cheap to stay in the city centre where they don’t mind sharing a room.
