Though enjoying a quiet and beautiful setting, Pearson Park House is literally a short stroll across the park to Princes Avenue, Hull’s Café Quarter (where restaurants include Thai, Chinese, traditional English, bistro style, Moroccan, Indian, Greek, & Italian).
It is very close to both the bus stops into the City Centre (300 Metres) and to Hull University (across the park).
Pearson Park History
In 1860 the then Mayor of Hull, Zachariah Pearson, donated a 27 acres (11 ha) plot to the Board of Health to be developed as a People’s Park.
Pearson Park, between Princes Avenue and Beverley Road, still resonates with Victorian grandeur and features an excellent play area and a conservatory greenhouse with birds, reptiles and fish.
