8 Prince Street, Hull

Prince Street is my favourite street in Hull for two reasons.

1) Tucked away just outside the “Museum Quarter”, it is incredibly quaint with its cobbled road, Georgian buildings and the smallest of parks / a garden which I imagine looks quite creepy in certain lights.

2) Because, between 1969 and 1973, No. 8 Prince Street was the creative HQ for COUM Transmissions, later known as the infamous Throbbing Gristle. There are photos here and here of member Cosey Fanni Tutti also doing a bit of posing on the spot.

  1. Thanks for posting! This has long been my favourite street in Hull, too. Even more so now I know of its musical heritage. I believe a visit is in order…
