PRE-WALK INFO: (If supplied) Walk leader's description of start point/general information about route.
 
Susan has timed her walk next Saturday to coincide with the arrival of the 09.02 train from Scarborough (arrives 10.28) and the walk will only start once the train has arrived. Some people have said they would like to board the train at other stations en route and the times are
 
Scarborough 09.02

Filey            09.17
Hunmanby   09.22

Fares
with a railcard 
  •  £10.15 day return
     

without a railcard
 

  • £23.10 for a duo ticket for 2 people. Both must travel together there and back.
  • Individual £15.40 day return
I suggest that those travelling by train from Scarborough meet at the station no later than 08.45 to allow time to 'pair up' and buy tickets.

Tricia
This is an urban walk, so comfortable shoes rather than walking boots will be fine.  
You may choose to have lunch in one of the numerous pubs in Hullís Old Town, but there is also a pleasant spot to enjoy a packed
lunch.  
The walk starts from the statue of the poet, Philip Larkin, on Hull station.  
Other sites on this walk include the Weeping Window Poppy Sculpture, the home of William Wilberforce, the Land of Green Ginger, 
Trinity House, which was responsible for the pilotage of ships from 1541 to 1987, and Hull grammar school, founded in 1583, 
where the poet Andrew Marvell was educated.  
There will also be a walk along the pathway beside the Humber, where you can see the statue erected to the two million 
immigrants who passed through Hull on their way to the USA and the memorial to the trawler men from Hull who lost their 
lives at sea, as well as the iconic building, The Deep.
