Roaming tourist information for Hull visitors

A roaming visitor information point is being offered in Hull, via a custom cargo bike in the city centre.

It’s being manned by volunteers from HEY! Volunteering, who can give information to visitors coming to the city over the summer holidays.

They will run from Wednesday to Saturday until September.

The roaming bike is in addition to the fixed visitor point at Paragon Interchange, which has helped so many people arriving in the city.

Abi Bell, volunteer programme manager for HEY! Volunteering, said: “Our volunteers already enjoy meeting people at the fixed tourism point in the train station, but this bike allows them to help so many more.

“They’re able to further show visitors what Hull has to offer, as well as giving directions and recommendations of what to see, where to get something to eat, and so on.

“This will allow them to extend what is already a warm welcome to the city.”

Portfolio holder for culture and leisure, Councillor Rob Pritchard, said: “These distinctive bikes allow our unique volunteers to offer even more help to those visiting our wonderful city.

“There’s so much to see and do in Hull, and a helping hand to guide people in the right direction will always be useful.”

As well as the roaming bike in Hull, there will also be one in Beverley town centre.
