    If you're choosing between a backpack and a case

    Luggage and bags: Bring a backpack if you will be arriving by train and need to get a bus. The temporary bus station is no longer next to the train station and you will need to walk a good distance to get to the buses. Best to do with a backpack and not a case!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's best to bring all kinds of clothes because the weather is unpredictable. Always bring waterproofs.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You sohuld be able to get just about anything here. Be cafeful though because to get certain medicines you may need a prescription and you need to be registered with a doctor.

    Photo Equipment: You should be able to get any photo equipment here. In the city centre there are many photography shops.

    Be careful your gear doesn't get stolen though!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you want to take a stroll, always take waterproofs just in case!

    Miscellaneous: Bring a camera!

    The wind-tunnel effect

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be aware on a windy day in Hull! Many of the east-west aligned streets in the city act as giant wind tunnels when the prevailing westerly winds are blowing. In many cities this isn’t too much of a problem, but the city’s location nestled against the Humber Estuary (in places a mile wide) exacerbates what is usually a trivial problem in most parts of the region. Hold on to your hats and wrap up warm, especially in spring or autumn.
