Travel Tips for Kingston upon Hull
Cream coloured phone boxes
Hull is the only UK city with its own independent telephone network company, Kingston Communications. This is why you'll see that instead of having red telephone boxes like the rest of the UK, the cities phone boxes are a distinctive cream colour.
The GemTech Arena
Newly built along with the KC Stadium the GemTech arena houses 12 badminton courts, an inventory of equipment to cater for basketball, indoor hockey, 5-a-side football, netball, table tennis, short tennis, trampolining, aerobics, volleyball, indoor bowls and children's short tennis, gymnastics and athletics. One outdoor sand-based all-weather pitch and one outdoor water-based all-weather pitch both with netting to divide into thirds, floodlights and players shelters and an outdoor skate park
Space for 1,200 spectators, a cafeteria.
They held the indoor Trampolining Championships here recently.
A little known square
Kingston Square is a little known sqaure to many visitors unless they visit the New Theatre but it provides quite a haven for workers at lunchtime in the summer and students from the nearby college.
There is seating and the compulsary pigeons looking for food.
A small seaside town to the east of Hull - about 18 miles and a regular bus service via Patrington.
There is a reasonable beach here and it is popular with families - there are amusements, pubs, fish and chips and ice cream parlours. Quite a good weekend market in the summer.
The lighthouse is open to the public and there is a small museum here dedicated to Withernsea born actress Kay Kendall.
Cafe in the art gallery
The Ferens Art Gallery has a very good cafe called La Loggia and it is open to everyone - not just those people visiting the gallery. There is a terraced area at the back of La Loggia facing Princes Quay - not the greatest view in Hull but it is cool overlooking the water on a hot day.
This is a busy cafe and it is sometimes hard to get a seat at lunchtime . The service is friendly and efficient - you order at the counter and drinks are brought to your table very soon after ordering.
There is an outside seating area in the summer looking out across the water Princes Quay stands on. The cafe is open form 10 to 4:30 ( only 4:00 on Saturdays) and the day starts with a breakfast menu and I like the muffins with bacon.
Lunch time sees the usual selection of baked potatoes , salads and lasagne amongst other things. However the baguettes come recommended and the sandwiches are filling.
Afternoons see an afternoon tea style menu.
