Hull’s diverse trails offer an alternative perspective of the city and reveal hidden gems. Among the most celebrated is the Fish Trail, an ode to the area’s maritime history. Adventurers can embark on a city-wide hunt to locate 41 life-size fish, ranging from tiny anchovies to a colossal 10ft ray. The trail commences outside City Hall Ticket office and finishes on Whitefriargate.
Designed by artist Gordon Young in 1992, the trail exhibits his playful approach through the unusual placement of the sculptures. The shark outside an ex-bank and electric eel by an electrical substation are perfect examples. The Fish Trail is an amusing excursion that presents visitors with an opportunity to explore notable landmarks and hidden alleyways alike. It’s suitable for all the family.
