Hull Ferry Routes UK Ferries Crossings to Europe

Although Hull Ferry Port is primarily at trade and freight port linking the U.K. with Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic regions it also offers a ferry service and more money is being pumped in to develop these services every year. Hull ferries are represented by P and O, who are their main carrier and sail from The Port of Hull to Zeebrugge in Belgium and from Hull to Rotterdam in the Netherlands.


The new ferry terminal in King George Dock is only ten minutes away from the city centre and is close to popular tourist attractions like the Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dale along with famous seaside resorts like Scarborough.

There has been a port in Hull since the 1100's and it has always been a bustling hub of commerce particularly in the 13th century when it was dominated by many foreign traders and merchants. Today the port handles around one million passengers each year.

Although the Port of Hull is having money invested in it, currently the only Hull ferries available are provided by P and O ferries (North Sea).

Why Hull?

Despite the fact that Hull is in itself an interesting city of Viking origin, it also acts as a gateway to the north of England and has good transport links to the Midlands. The City of Hull is close to famous areas of natural beauty such as the Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales, the setting to many a romantic English novel. The area directly around Hull known as the Yorkshire Wolds, has an abundant bird life and is an area of natural beauty. If on the other hand you fancy some fun by the sea roll up your trousers, stick a hankie on your head, buy yourself a stick of rock and visit one of the coastal resorts of Bridlington or Scarborough.
