I lived in Hull for the first 18 years of my life, and even though I have been away for more than 30 years, the city is still very familiar to me. It is a shame that the vitamin company Seven Seas which sponsors this trail, and is based in Hull, will cese to be as from 2013. However, hopefully it will still be remembered though the trail. The leaflet is available from the Tourist Information Centre in the city centre. I can't remember how much it was, but less than £2. It outlines a route through many interesting areas of the old town, including hidden passageways between some of the oldest pubs. The leaflet gives lots of facts about the city and things to look out for along the way, which you would just walk past otherwise. Personally I love these type of trails and have done many around the world in historic cities. Where this one is a bit different however, is that inset into the pavement along the way are many different types of brass fish - some by themselves, some in groups. It gives an added interest for kids who might have been dragged along, as you can send them scouting a little way ahead for the fish. Possibly you could even do rubbings of some of them if you havd had the presence of mind to bring paper and crayons! The walk took me about three hours, although it is supposed to be half that long. However I think that that is because I like to stop and look at things! I learnt a lot about my home town!
