Visited the Hull Marina previously and want to come again? Look no further than an excuse to make a weekend visit than the 2016 Hull Fair.
Hull Fair is one of Europe’s largest travelling funfairs, helping to bring in many visitors to the Marina.
1993 saw the 700th anniversary of the Hull Fair following its inaugural opening in 1278, between 9-23 March. Stalls are filled with sights and smells of traditional fairground food; from hotdogs and hamburgers to toffee apples and candy floss – there’s even a hog roast!
Hull Fair kicked into action this year on Friday 9 October and will run until midnight on Saturday 17 October – so why not head down this weekend? It opens every day from 14:00 to 23:00.
This fair offers rides and attractions from a wide variety of different regions. It carries on such traditions as being opened by the Lord Mayor of Hull.
You can find this event taken place on Walton Street car park, next to West Park, the KC Stadium and the Bonus Arena. For those travelling by car, the postcode is: HU3 6JU.
2016 is expected to be one of the busiest ever periods in the fair’s history with thousands flocking to the North West to attend this attraction. The record-breaking crowds have been blessed with good weather so far this year, in the shadow of the city’s football stadium.
A 5-minute walk from both the football stadium and the Hull Fair is Hull Marina – a popular destination in the United Kingdom for those that have a boat.
With winter mooring season coming up, you can expect to see the Marina becoming more and more full in the coming weeks as boat owners begin to lock up their prised possessions for the winter.
Those attending the Hull Fair may like to take the short walk down to the river Humber for the great views, especially when the city is lit up at night. During the day, you can get a view of the many attractive boats both along the river and moored up at the marina.
Hull is the European City of Culture for 2017
