A new open-top bus tour is launching in Hull, the Hull Daily Mail reported.

The Hull Explorer service will be run by EYMS and has been timed to launch within Hull’s City of Culture year.

The open top service will take visitors on a tour around the city centre’s sights, calling at the Cenotaph, Queen Victoria Square, the Wilberforce Monument, Old Town, the Museums Quarter, Hull Minster/Trinity Square, The Deep and the Marina.

A tour guide will tell the story of the city, past and present, as the bus travels.

Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, said: “Hull City Centre boasts some wonderful sights and fantastic architecture and really deserves an open-top bus tour.

“It’s great that EYMS are going to be providing this service so that visitors can explore the city like never before. It’s also a chance for people who have lived in Hull all their lives to be able to experience their city in a new way.”

The tour will last around an hour and a half.

The tour bus will have six journeys a day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays all summer. It will launch on Saturday, July 22 and run until Sunday, September 3. Adult tickets will cost £8 with a family pass available for £21.

EYMS said there is no need to book in advance for the bus – passengers can simply buy a ticket from the driver when they board or purchase a ticket from the EYMS Buses app.
