Direct intervention to draw investment, bring retail and office space back into use, and attract businesses, visitors and residents into Hull’s historic Old Town. Investment will be centred on revitalisation of Trinity Indoor Market and the surrounding public spaces, whilst making the most of the Old Town’s rich history and architecture.


The overall vision is the rebirth of the Old Town as an area of thriving café bars, visitor attractions restaurants and independent retailers, and for the area to become a strong economic presence to the East of the City Centre and to play a strong role at the heart of the City of Culture 2017 celebrations.
