Reviewed 22 January 2018

we went to see the new features that have been placed at the queens gardens, it is very well maintained with small lakes and fountains, it is situated very close to the city center and shops.
it was a old dock and is the place that Alexander Selkirk sailed from on his ill fated journey before he was marooned the book Robinson Crusoe was based on his story.

When I first visited the city of Kingston-upon-Hull in 1993, to photograph examples of post-war architectural sculpture on behalf of Historic England, I came across various sculptures in Queen's Gardens made from Portland limestone and bronze and, as part of a day out to Hull, I recently went to take another look.

With my visit coinciding with the beginning of the Freedom Festival, very many marquees and miscellaneous other displays were being set up and, as it was starting to rain, I only had time to photograph some of the sculptures that I had seen before and wasn't able to see the recent improvements that have been undertaken this year.

I was impressed by the floral displays and the Wilberforce Monument and the ceramic frieze sculpture on the front elevation of Hull College, just beyond its eastern end, are worth seeing.

Not the best ever Gardens but well maintained and a nice spot in the city centre. Lots of seating and a cafe available too.

Walking around these gardens is quite pleasant, The once famous dock, now the Gardens, was where the ficticiuos character Robinson Crusoe sailed from. Highly recommend it.
