Tourist information centres
Wondering what to do once you arrive in Hull? Not sure where the bus stops are, or need a printed map of the city? There’s a tourist information centre in the city to help you get around, as well as several others in the surrounding towns and villages. Hull Tourist Information Centre is in the centre of town on Queen Victoria Square, part of the same building as Hull City Hall. Find more information about the centres at Beverley, the Humber Bridge and beyond on the Visit Hull and East Yorkshire website.
Hull’s main hospital is the Hull Royal Infirmary (or HRI) on Anlaby Road in the city centre. HRI is home to the city’s accident and emergency department, as well as the Women and Children’s Hospital and the Eye Hospital. Castle Hill Hospital is to the north of the city on Castle Road in Cottingham, although this does not have an accident and emergency department. The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust website has more information about these hospitals and other medical services in the region.
