A project that took several years to complete. Each panel illustrates the history of Hull and a board explains how the project took place. Very interesting and no entrance fee..

I am probably a little biased about the Hull tapestries as my late Mum was one of the Hull Tapestry Group, though they are definitely worth seeing and represent the enormous talent of local people, and is not publicised as well as it could be.

We were visiting the Guildhall for a performance of The Last Testament Of Lillian Bilocca and had to wait in the room containing the Tapestries. They are wonderful, absolutely gorgeous. The Guildhall itself is a beautiful building well worth a visit

These tapestries were a real labour of love, and displayed beautifully the scenes and life in Hull. You can only see these on display but not go any further, as the Guildhall is a working enviroment.

These brilliant tapestries are hidden away in the Guildhall. We stumbled on them by accident and were amazed. They do not feature in any of the guide books we had regarding the City of Culture, but were one of the best things we saw. They...More

An excellent display of the Hull tapestry and the background information makes this a great visit. Set inside the Guildhall another good free attraction. Learn about Hull and its importance to this nation.

The tapestries are not well displayed nor do most people know about them as they are in a sideroom of the Hull Guildhall. It is a pity because they are a great piece of work done by local, well trained people,
