We used the overnight ferry from Hull once as we’d been in North Yorkshire anyway...a wedding from memory. I think it was a bit pricey but not, as I recall, any more than an overnight ferry from Portsmouth and we did get a pretty good nights sleep as it’s not a quick crossing. So you do get the whole day on the continent! With the best will in the world, from here (W Sussex) it’s a drag to be in France before lunchtime using Eurotunnel; from Yorkshire almost impossible, so I see the sense in taking that route :)

As it happens we also spent the weekend in Hull in 2017 (combined with a trip round some of Hockney’s haunts in East Yorkshire) and I have to say it had improved immeasurable since my last visit in, probably, 1987. Had some great food in the redeveloped area by the docks, and some interesting museums as well. Old Hull is quite pretty too...just a shame most of it was blown to bits in the war! The hotels on the other hand were somewhat lacking. The weather was not dissimilar to the heatwave we have just had, so all in all a good weekend.
