36 High Street
Come aboard Hull’s last sidewinder trawler the Arctic Corsair and let the crew take you on a guided tour (access is limited).
You’ll hear all about life at sea and the dangers deep sea trawlermen faced in the Icelandic fishing grounds.
Our free guided tours are the only way to see inside the Arctic Corsair.
Before each tour starts you can watch a short 10 minute action film - Life at Sea - in the Arctic Corsair visitor centre (next to the Hull and East Riding Museum). You can also find out more about the Arctic Corsair at the museum, which is free to enter and you do not need to book.
