Hull Rotterdam Ferry reviews

  • "Poor contact from direct ferries"

    After this recent trip I don't know if I will book through direct ferries again due to their incompetence, after the sailings stopped , although it was not their fault the ferries company didn't have our contact number so they could contact us to tell us to go to Amsterdam for a new crossing , I had to drive to the port to be told I had missed another crossing & had to pay for a crossing to get , very poor service from direct ferries

  • "Car purchase"

    I have just purchased a classic car from Holland which has been quite chaotic and the ferry trip was one of my biggest fears, but the staff / crew on board were so helpfull it made my trip so much easier that I though it was going to be, even through a massive storm. Thank you so much.

Hull Travel Guide

The English city of Hull, or Kingston upon Hull to give it its official name, is located in the ceremonial county of the East Riding of Yorkshire, in the north east of England. The city, and its port, lies on the banks of the River Hull where it meets the Humber estuary, around 40 km from the North Sea. The city's history dates back to the 12th century where the monks of Meaux Abbey needed a port in order to export the wool they gathered from their estate.

The Hull of today is very different from the Hull of the past and has undergone a transformation in recent years. The city was declared the UK City of Culture for 2017. The city's cultural and sporting heritage are clear for everyone to see. In the city, visitors should visit the Old Town and Museum Quarter, Hull Marina and The Deep, which is an aquarium located at Sammy's Point. From a sporting perspective the city is home to professional football team, Hull City Football Club, and a Super League Rugby team, Hull FC Rugby Club.
