Inside Hull’s abandoned Circus Circus as spooky pictures show it left to wrack and ruin

These haunting pictures show what has become of a once thriving Hull pub which has been abandoned for years and left to wrack and ruin.

Circus Circus in Spencer Street, off Ferensway, used to draw in punters across the city and was recognisable for its funky and slightly gaudy interior.

However, it closed in the early noughties and in spite of numerous proposals is yet to be redeveloped.

After years of gathering dust, one urban explorer from Hull was keen to see what it looked like inside Circus Circus – and he was greeted by some eerie sights.

The man, who did not want to be named, said: “It had been vandalised massively which is a shame and the downstairs was fairly sparse on items but upstairs there was a kitchen and offices.

“It smelt awful and it felt like someone might have lived in there at one point. You get that creepy feeling but I’m not into all that haunted stuff.”

 

An Oasis poster advertising shows in Sheffield, Paris and Southend can be seen emblazoned on one of the walls and wires can be seen hanging from the ceiling in the barrel rooms.

Down one of the corridors, a radiator has been pulled off the wall and there is even a very old – now somewhat retro – desktop computer.

 

The explorer, who has already taken pictures inside Hull’s notorious Lord Line Building, said he never breaks into any of the places he goes inside.

He does not cause any damage to the properties and does not see his actions as trespassing.



Circus Circus had a distinct interior

The man said: “I’ve lived in Hull since birth and you see these places and you go by them and in passing I think ‘is there a door or window open’?

“If there is I will maybe check it out or look inside. I never break in or anything like that and if I have to prize off a window panel or anything like that I wouldn’t do it.

 

“Unless I can do it without breaking in I don’t do it and I never take anything when I go inside.

“I enjoy taking pictures and I enjoy the history of it all. You’ve got museums which you can go around and see houses that are open to the public but part of the thrill is going inside somewhere no one has been in for 10 to 15 years.”
