Starting from the Tourist Information Centre in the City Hall in Queen Victoria Square (where you collect your much needed free map), the trail takes you through the heart of Hull’s old town, via the marina and pier, and back up through the famous Whitefriargate.

There are plenty of places to eat at en route, or take a picnic. The best place to eat is the pier, where there is an ice-cream kiosk and some of the best retro public toilets you will ever see.
|Fish in the pier|
There is a part of the route which goes through an old (but working) pub and the passageway is quite narrow so may not be accessible to wide pushchairs, but other than that, the route is very navigable.
We love the fish trail because it is free, and takes you through some fantastic parts of old Hull which are much overlooked.
Just in case you can’t find the smallest fish art on the trail (the shrimp on High Street), this is what you are looking for. Good luck with that one!!
