Travellers Tales: Visitors to Hull in the 16th and 17th Centuries – by Richard Clarke

Between the reign of Henry VIII and early Victorian times many travellers passed
through East Yorkshire and, in some cases, their recorded experiences survive. Some visited Hull and wrote of their findings and opinions at that time.

The purpose of this presentation is to highlight the travellers who also came to
Hull and what they said about the town and port. These extracts will then be
cross-referenced with other contemporary evidence to assess the value of each travellers “tales” and to build a picture of the evolution of modern Hull.
