Travel Guidance

Train & Bus
Arriving by train or bus is by far the easiest option, as the hotel is a stones throw from them both. Use redspottedhanky.com for great train deals.

Car
Post code for satnav is DN35 0BY. See the venue site for detailed directions.

Ferry
Ferry services arrive to Hull from Amsterdam, Belgium and Holland. You will need further transport as the venue is around an hour drive from the docks.

Air
Closest airport is Humberside, though Leeds or Manchester are also a short train ride away and offer more flight connections. Check skyscanner.net for the best deals.

Taxi
Useful numbers for booking cabs from Cleethorpes/Grimsby: 01472 696969, 01472 353535, 01472 320736.
