11. Hull History Centre
Keeping Queen's Gardens to your left and the college buildings on your right, continue along Wilberforce Drive to reach its junction with George Street. The balconied building on the corner, currently a popular nightclub, was the Queen's Hotel for most of Larkin's years in the city.

Immediately before the traffic lights, turn left into the cobbled Charlotte Street Mews. Here you will see the striking Hull History Centre, which opened in 2010. As well as containing the archives of the City Council, it also houses archives from the University of Hull. Within these sits an extensive personal collection relating to Larkin, including everything from his poetry workbooks and photographs to his enormous library of books and records.

Hull History Centre offers a wonderful opportunity to discover more about Larkin's life, as well as other poets with a Hull connection, and about the rich heritage of the city in which they all lived.
