To Hull from Edinburgh

by Blacksta

Using buses or trains, what are my options to travel from edinburgh to Hull?
Thanks

Re: To Hull from Edinburgh

by doodybee

try www.nationalrailenquiries.co.uk - there are trains from hull via leeds to edinburgh

or try www.gobycoach.co.uk
or www.megabus.com


all these sites should give you times and prices

or you could hire a car and drive if you feel confident enough

www.nationalrail.co.uk for train times and fares. The link given in the post above does not exist.

www.nationalexpress.com for long-distance coaches. www.gobycoach.com no longer exists: it will take you to the link given here.

Coach is cheaper, but takes longer.

Megabus does not run services from or to Hull.

Re: To Hull from Edinburgh

Have worried about being tactless......no intention of being so.

They changed the addresses some time ago.

leics
i know what you mean about tactless
i answered a query alittle while ago and although i didn't read it in its entirity didn't mean anything nasty and i got a right drubbing from the person in question

i did publically apologise ( ie in the ensuing thread) and not directly through the homepage and was ignored

but hey thats folk being people isn't it

i suppose having worked at the National Rail Enquiries call centre the site address is burned in memory

Travel Tips for Kingston upon Hull

Go on to the Northsea for a...

by Pavlik_NL

Go on to the Northsea for a simple tour or - even better - a seafishingtrip. In the Hull harbour there are some enterprises that offer this great entertainment. Maybe it's in my Dutch blood, that I love the sea in a very special way. Many English however for sure will agree that the great waters can make or break a nation. To watch the citylight in the darkness and distance slowly disappear while North Sea Ferries brought me back home after an exhausting but splendid biking-holiday in Great Britain.

How to speak Ull #2

by northeast80

"The Vikings arrived in the 9th Century and carved the county up into 'thrithings' or thirds. These 'Thirds' would later be called the North, East and West Ridings. These administrative boundaries remained intact for well over one thousand years.
Each Riding appears to have its own specific form of dialect. The West Riding dialect is considered to have a hard, almost brash sound to it. This is seen by some as a reflection of the hardships endured by those employed within the mills.
The North and East Ridings by comparison are seen as having a much softer spoken dialect, quite possibly because it was used by farmers and others from tiny rural communities.
A good example of the hard and soft sound that differentiates the West and North/East Ridings is the word 'father'. In the West Riding it's pronounced 'fatther,' which is quite hard. Whereas people from the North/East Ridings pronounce it much softer as in, 'feyther,' or 'faather'.
However, there's one peculiarity of our regional dialect that is common in all three regions. Regarded by some an absolute treasure, it's known as the 'glottal stop.' Countless outsiders fail miserably when they try to execute the glottal stop, quite simply 'flummoxed' by this most Yorkshire of things!
To better understand it, let's take the term "There was a right bang in the night." If we then 'Yorkshire' this up, we end up with 'Ther worra reyt bang in t' neyt.' Pronounced correctly (ie Tyke!), the "t'" of "t' neyt" remains silent and the throat tightens slightly, acting as an unspoken marker for the word 'the.' "
Taken from the BBC website.

Hull has quite a 'winy' accent "Al 'ave a glass of draah wahyt wahyn" (I'll have a glass of dry white wine).
The vowels sound like this
A = aeh (like 'hay' in a posh accent, without the 'h' with a longer 'a' sound)
E = ey (as in 'he')
I = aah (short a)
O = ooah (with a Hull accent, sorry it's hard to describe, maybe like the 'o' in mow)
U = like the word 'ewe'

The Land of Green Ginger

by sourbugger

Mention the "Land of Green Ginger" anywhere in the world, and anyone from Hull will be thinking of this very unusually named street, in the old town area of Kingston-upon-Hull. The old town area is actually quite attractive, and nowadays filled with modern bars, pubs and clubs.

'Green ginger' is the name used to describe ginger cured with lemon juice, but no one seems to know how this little street was so named.

It has also been used as the inspiration for a children's book and a play.

Off the beaten path as being not so much a touristic attraction is the modern floating shoppingmall Princess'Quay. In an old shippingdock it is built on a huge ponton and houses a nice collection of shops, restaurants and café's. If you're going to enjoy some seafood, here is the place to have a nice choice in restaurant.

by steventilly

Spurn Pilot Station is a hive of activity. Over a hundred ships a day use the river and many need a pilot to guide them in and out. The lifeboat station here is permanently manned, the only one in Britain that is. There are some houses on Spurn Head, near the cafe, that accomodate the Lifeboat crews.
