Find out what’s open and when on Monday’s Bank Holiday as Queen’s Funeral screened in Queen Victoria Square

Following the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, many people are reflecting on her lifetime of service and dedication to her country.

On Monday 19 September, Hull City Council will be providing residents and visitors to Hull with the opportunity to come together in Queen Victoria Square to watch her state funeral, which will take place at 11am at Westminster Abbey in London.

People can watch the proceedings from 9am onwards, on a 20-metre screen on the balcony of Hull City Hall. The screen will show coverage from the BBC live from London, and some seating will also be available.

Councillor Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council said: “We have seen over the last week how the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has affected so many people. By showing the funeral on a big screen in Hull city centre we hope this gives the residents of Hull the opportunity to come together as a community and pay their respects together. I would encourage the residents of Hull to come together on Monday, particularly those who would otherwise have been on their own.”

Anyone travelling to the city centre is advised to check their travel as East Yorkshire and Stagecoach buses are operating a Sunday service.

City centre car parks will remain open and the Queen Victoria Square toilets will be available. There will also be a coffee cart in the Square.

Most retail stores will be closed for the day, and a small number of cafes and restaurants will be open.

The screening will finish at 4.30pm, as the service in Windsor finishes.

Please visit for further information on the funeral.
