If you don’t know already I have been moving house, it has taken weeks and I can honestly say it has been mega stressful. Some bright spark (that will be me then) decided that it would be cheaper to get removal people to move just the big furniture and I would do the rest. Oh my goodness, it has taken so long, I can barely move, my back is kaput, but on the upside (always look for positives when the situation is dire) I can do my jeans up again! Yay!

Days out

I am soooo desperate for a break, to be pampered a little; lie in bed knowing that I don’t have to make breakfast; go for a leisurely swim; walks and just generally relax and spend some time with the children without all the usual hustle and bustle that everyday life entails…especially with a move in the mix!

A mini break in Hull – where to stay

I really like the idea of staying in Hull, and having seen the Holiday Inn Hull Marina it appears to tick all the boxes and more. It has an indoor pool, fitness centre, we can take our dog (huge bonus) plus the children can stay free. I love the idea of Hull Marina location where we can watch the boats coming in and out and yet the city centre is only a few minutes walk away.

What to do in Hull

Sheep -A mini break in Hull

There is plenty to do in Hull to keep us busy if we fancy it.

A visit to The Deep, the world’s only submarium, and home to 3500 fish including sharks, rays and Gentoo penguins. I would love to get to one of the daily dive shows. In the evening The Two Rivers restaurant which is located in the aquarium Aquariumsounds amazing!

Some culture at Hull maritime museum. I have a slight obsession about whales so learning about the history of whaling in the area fascinates me and admission to the museum is free.

Or maybe some retail therapy at St Stephen’s shopping centre.The girls would like that, although my purse probably wouldn’t.

A little further away is Flamingo Land which I know the youngest two would love, a theme park and a zoo it will be an action packed day.

On energetic days we can visit the stunning Yorkshire Wolds for a walk or cycle. In my case that will be walk as I am a danger on a bike.

Honeysuckle farm is something that M would enjoy visiting, as well as farm animals to see, it has a play barn, cart rides, forts to climb and mazes to get lost in plus much more.


Do you have any more places you would add to visit?

  1. I have never been to Hull and have no idea what to expect, so it was good to read that you had a relaxing time there.

  2. I’ve only ever driven through Hull to get to the ferry but you’ve actually made me want to stop off there sometime.
