I have lived in Hull and recently near Washington DC - one of the main values these two places share now is that their museums are all free - this was a great way to spend time with friends and experience the evolution of transportation...More

There is a multi storey car park next to the Magistrates Court which is cheaper than the local Council ones. There is also plenty of on street car parking closer if you're only staying a short while.
