Father’s Day is this Sunday. Have you thought about how you’re going to treat him?

Luckily, there’s an abundance of activities in Hull to make his day extra special. Soak up the city’s heritage, take in the stunning sights, and create a customised digital note for your old man.

Bill Bailey’s Cabinet of Curiosities

For fathers who love a bit of history, Bill Bailey’s Cabinet of Curiosities, located at Hull Maritime Museum, will be right up their street.

The comedian uncovers the stories behind fascinating artefacts and objects. These range from an intriguing elephant’s foot to a magical unicorn horn.

Delve into the history behind the collection, which also incorporates some hilarious quips from local youngsters.

The museum is open on Father’s Day from 11am until 4:30pm.

Fish and chips at The Lion and Key

If you’ve worked up a healthy appetite, we suggest heading to the Old Town and visiting the incredible Lion and Key pub on the High Street.

The distinctive alehouse serves some of the finest fish and chips in Hull and is plastered in captivating memorabilia. For instance, the ceiling is covered completely in old beer mats.

Meanwhile, the jolly atmosphere of the joint will keep daddy happy as he tucks into his hearty meal.

To book a table at The Lion and Key, please call 01482 225212.

Great beers at William Hawkes

Wash down lunch with a delicious pint at one of Hull’s seemingly oldest pubs (it only opened a few years ago).

William Hawkes was a gunmaker at the premises in the early 1800s, but now the building is home to a traditional inn (pictured). It’s just a stone’s throw from The Lion and Key, making it the perfect Father’s Day pit stop.

Serving an exciting selection of ten real ales, refreshing ciders and an assortment of spirits, your dad is bound to find something to tantalise his palate.

A personalised message on the Tidal Barrier

Show your pop just how much you care by broadcasting your love across the River Humber.

Head to the picturesque marina and admire the quietly bobbing boats, then announce your gratefulness into the microphone at The City Speaks installation. This can be found at the head of Humber Street, offering a perfect view of the Tidal Barrier.

Simply walk up to the metal stand and say a short, clear sentence. The computer will then interpret your message and display it for all to see. It’s the ultimate way to say “Happy Father’s Day”.

Drinks with a view

End the day at the brand new rooftop bar on the top of the Humber Street Gallery. With impressive views and spectacular drinks, it’s the ideal way to wind down after a long day.

Choose from a flavoursome coffee or scrumptious cocktail, all beneath sunny skies and with a view of the Fruit Market’s buildings, old and new.
