Introduction / The Apartment

The apartment is located in the heart of Hull's historic Old Town surrounded by cobbled lanes, listed buildings and the old warehouses of the river Hull. As you approach the apartment you walk over the long body of the oarfish and the wriggly legs of the squid (part of the historic fish trail).
The apartment building (Cogan Chambers) was built in 1869 and is tucked away, off the street, where Exchange Court and Exchange Alley meet. Names that evoke thoughts of an era of smugglers and traders exchanging goods and spices. There are lovely bars and restaurants close by, the nearest of which is just a few metres away, Ye Olde White Hart pub.

About the neighbourhood

It's a short walk to Hull New Theatre (about 8 minutes). Hull Truck is a little further (about 12 minutes). You are also near to The Deep aquarium which is a 5 minute walk, as is the Museum Quarter. You are already on the Fish Trail (next to the squid and the oarfish). Best of all you already in Hull’s historic Old Town quarter and just a 5 minute stroll to the Marina area and the bohemian Fruit Market area (Hull’s answer to New York’s Lower East Side….seriously). They offer a vibrant and cultural eating and drinking experience. Everything you need is nearby and just a short stroll away including a food market, indoor market, cinema, shopping malls, bars, post office and many restaurants.
