The perfect base for theatre lovers
Hull has two excellent theatres offering year-round entertainment. The famous Spring Street Theatre, home to Hull Truck Theatre Company, is centrally located close to Hull Train Station. This theatre is where John Godber, one of the most performed writers in the English language, joined as Artistic Director in 1984 and stayed for more than 21 years. His plays, such as Bouncers, Teechers and Up ‘n’ Under are still performed to this day.
Hull New Theatre is the place to enjoy the big shows, musicals and family entertainment. Built in 1939, this plucky theatre has survived a few scares, including a direct hit during the war and the threat of being turned into a bingo hall in the 60s. Both theatres are a short ten-minute drive from The Kingstown Hotel.
Free parking for guests
There is ample free parking for guests staying at The Kingstown Hotel, including a number of disabled parking spaces.
How to get here
We are conveniently located just off Hull Road on the A1033 towards Hedon. To find us by satnav, use the postcode HU12 8DJ.
An ancient medieval town, Hedon missed being listed in the Domesday Book as it was formed in 1140, 54 years after the Domesday Book was completed. It’s thought this site was chosen as an early settlement because of its proximity to the Hedon Haven, a stream that was two miles from the river Humber. This area became the hub with a market place, the Hall of Pleas, the prison and the grammar school being built around it.
Many watercourses flowed through the town and these were dug out and widened not only to successfully prevent flooding, but also to bring trade deeper into the town.
Hedon has many objects of interest, some that remain unseen by the majority of people who live in and visit the town, such as the Kilnsea Cross, which is situated in the walled garden of Holyrood House, a residential home for the elderly in Baxtergate. The cross is said to have been originally erected at Ravenser, near Spurn, on the site where Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Lancaster landed in 1399, to be joined by the Earls of Northumberland and Westmorland. They overthrew Richard II and Henry eventually reigned as King Henry IV.
Today, Hedon is a smart market town complete with attractive housing stock from the 17th and 18th centuries. A friendly town with local amenities close at hand, it’s well worth a stroll around during your stay at The Kingstown Hotel.
Hedon also offers easy access to the historic market town of Beverley and the Yorkshire Wolds, and the traditional seaside resort towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea to the east. At the heart of Yorkshire’s Nature Triangle, it is also close to the exceptional wildlife of Bempton Cliffs, Flamborough Head and Spurn Point, a key stopover for rare migratory birds.
The Deep (6 miles)
The world’s only submarium is home to 3,500 different species of fish, including Europe’s only pair of Green Sawfish, several varieties of shark and stingrays. It’s worth planning your visit around 2pm when the Deep divers swim through the vast tank at feeding time. Fascinating.
Hull Stadium (7 miles)
Home to Hull FC, conferences, exhibitions and major music concerts, if you’re visiting the KC Stadium as spectator or exhibitor, The Kingstown Hotel is just a short distance away.
Stretching over 2,200 metres, the Humber Bridge is the seventh longest single-span suspension bridge in the world, and first opened in 1981. It connects East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and can be accessed via car or you can sail under this magnificent construction using Hull’s ferry service.
Hull Truck Theatre (3 miles)
Founded in 1971 by actor Mike Bradwell, his theatre slowly built up its reputation with excellent performances of Knowledge and John Godber’s Bouncers and Up n’ Under. After bringing high quality drama productions to the area for thirty years, Hull Truck is now regarded as an iconic British Theatre company. Their new 440-seat purpose-built theatre is located in Ferensway near St Stephen’s Shopping Centre.
The Guildhall (6 miles)
A popular and beautiful wedding venue, the Guildhall is in the Centre of Hull near to Queens Park. If you’re attending a wedding here and looking for a hotel, The Kingstown Hotel is close by, just 15 minutes away.
The Hands on History Museum (5 miles)
In the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied, The Hands on History Museum houses the story of Hull and its people. The museum gives you a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times, the Story of Hull and features an Egyptian Gallery where you’ll find a genuine 2,600 year old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamen’s treasures. Entry to the museum is free.
The University of Hull (8 miles)
Another significant landmark in Hull is its university, which was founded in 1927. The poet Philip Larkin worked at the university’s Brynmor Jones Library for over 30 years. Poet laureate Andrew Motion also worked in the same library and so did the BAFTA winning film director Anthony Minghella.
