Its a great name - Land of Green Ginger. There is a very popular children's book of the same name, and even a more contemporary place in Tyneside that has borrowed the name. For a visitor, it is really of interest because of the name...More

A quaint street, famous for its unusual name. I popped into The George, which is a traditional pub and was shown the smallest window in England which is to the side of this establishment and easy to miss.

It’s just a small street, which is part of the old town but, what a name. Worth walking down it just to say you’ve been there. Tiny, tiny window in the pub & the street adjoins other, equally beautiful streets in old Hull

This small and historical street is mainly know only to the locals. It is certainly worth a visit to any tourists or visitors to Hull.
