The great city of Kingston upon Hull and its citizens have been first in many fields over many years. This trail, created by Carnegie Heritage Centre volunteers as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, helps you explore the city and its history through some of these “firsts”. Learn about Hull’s pioneer aviator, see where the English Civil War started, find out which Hull pop star earned the first ever gold disc, and lots more! We hope you enjoy the trail, whilst discovering more about Hull.

The full trail shown by the dotted magenta line, takes between 1.5 and 2 hours.
