Wilberforce House

23-25 High Street, Hull, HU1 1NQ 01482 613 902

We say

Wilberforce House is the birthplace of slavery abolitionist (and Hull MP) William Wilberforce, and explores the history and legacy of slavery in the city that led the fight in Britain in the late-18th century. Wilberforce is buried in Westminster Abbey but the family home stands as a monument to his achievement, with fascinating sections on slave plantation life and the horrors of the trans-Atlantic passage as well as artefacts, costumes and documents relating to Hull's most renowned historic figure.
