    What's it about?

    The city’s last surviving sidewinder fishing trawler has opened for the season.

    Visitors can experience a guided tour of the Arctic Corsair before it says a temporary goodbye and is placed into storage later this year. The trawler will receive a major restoration to secure its long-term future as part of the £27.4 million Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City programme.

    Built in 1960 at the Beverley Shipyard for the Boyd Line, the Arctic Corsair had a long and successful career before being involved in a collision with an Icelandic Gun boat in the 1970s, marking the decline of the local fishing industry. The deep-sea trawler was converted to a museum ship in 1999 and has since attracted more than 20,000 visitors.

    The free guided tours, which last up to one-and-a-half hours and are the only way to see inside the Arctic Corsair, are operated by a team of volunteers, who have generously given their time to share the trawler’s compelling story.

    Before each tour starts, you can watch a 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. The free tours run every Wednesday and Saturday 10am – 3pm and Sunday 11am – 3pm until further notice.

    The Arctic Corsair is behind the Streetlife Museum on the River Hull between Drypool Bridge and Myton Bridge. It can be accessed via the Museums Quarter, High Street. The visitor centre is beside the Hull and East Riding Museum in the Museums Quarter.
