About Hull Trinity Backpackers

About Hull Trinity Backpackers

51-52 Market Place is a house from the Georgian era – 1807.  Early Twentieth Century saw it become the Gaiety Picture House between 1911 + 1913, later becoming a music hall until 1934 – renamed the Playgoers. The building has stories to tell from the 1940s too, as bomb damage changed it’s appearance.

For those of an cultural persuasion, you will be staying in a building of rich historical interest. Few pictures survive of that time but we’re busy looking for archive images showing how things used to be…

A Building With A Metal Gate

The building existed over many years as a chandlers shop, rehearsal and storage site, becoming part of the indoor market in the 1990s.  Our next door neighbour today: TRINITY MARKET HULL – a place to visit for fresh foods, drinks, street foods and live events.

This building briefly opened as a hostel in 2014, refurbished to what you see today as Trinity Backpackers from 2017. Glenn and team aim to provide an independent place to stay, rest, take a drink in the heart of Hull’s Historic Old Town. We welcome you to come and help make that happen…
