The Catalogue

The History Centre catalogue contains information and descriptions to over 330,000 items in the archives and local studies collections. It does not include images of the documents themselves.


The Hull History Centre houses collections of local, regional and national importance relating to the City of Hull and the surrounding areas, Hull's maritime history, politics and campaigning, and prominent figures in literature and drama.

Our help page contains information and tips on searching and using the catalogue to identify material relevant to your enquiry, whether for family history, local history or just curiosity.
