Hull History Centre

The Learning Centre provides state-of-the-art storage and public access facilities for the archival, manuscript, book and local studies collections. The facilities include IT and teaching areas as well as rooms for visitors to consult material.

Learning at The Hull History Centre can take many forms; as well as sessions for schools, a monthly lunchtime club lecture, regular family activities, local history courses and family history courses. It also hosts a monthly reading group and in the summer we make use of the beautiful outdoor space with acoustic in the archive.

Hull History Centre provides a range of very popular Family History courses and Local History courses and day schools run in conjunction with Hull Adult Learning. These family history and research skills-based courses are an excellent opportunity for people to really find out more about where they come from.

The Centre is also part of Hull University and provides an important resource for its student, both undergraduate and postgraduate.

The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
