The Humber Museums Partnership, a consortium of Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire Museums Services, is excited to announce the launch of its latest project – The Humber 250 trail.
The Humber 250 trail takes people on a scenic journey throughout the rich landscapes of Humber region, linking 70 fascinating sites of interest ranging from Museums and Art Galleries, Historic Houses and Gardens, Industrial and Wartime Heritage and Archaeology and Architecture.
Nial Adams, of the Humber Museums Partnership, commented:
“We are very excited about the launch of the Humber 250 trail. Hull is very much on the map this year for City of Culture events, we simply want to expand the map and encourage visitors to visit experience and enjoy the unique and fascinating heritage of the wider Humber region.”
The Humber trail will be launched on the 2 June from 12noon-1 pm at Normanby Hall, North Lincolnshire. The launch will feature an eclectic mix of classic cars and cyclists led by an eager team of Victorian Explorers on their quadricycle, creating a rather unique photo opportunity as they depart the Hall to explore the rest of the Humber 250 trail!
Some of Hull’s top attractions are part of the trail including Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Maritime Museum, Streetlife Museum, Wilberforce House and East Park.
You can pick up the trail guide in the region’s tourist information centres, via the Humber Museums Partnership website at http://www.humbermuseums.com and via a mobile phone application which will be available on Play Store and App Store for free.
