Goole has been referred to as a ‘Port in Green Fields’ because of its location so far inland from the sea. It is a small but working port on the River Ouse in Yorkshire, and if it wasn’t for the port being developed, there would be no Goole today. Goole was a small village until Dutchman Cornelius Vermuyden built the Dutch River in the early 1600s and formed confluence with the River Ouse to begin the growth of the town. The first building in Goole is reputed to be the Lowther Hotel built in 1824, located on Aire Street where it still stands today.

The Goole museum is located in the heart of the town and is a great place to learn about the history, as well as to see all of the artefacts and documents that have been collected to tell the story of the town. The Yorkshire Waterways Museum is another interesting attraction to visit because of its collection dedicated to the inland waterways and industrial heritage that surrounds Goole. The navigation of the Aire and the Calder are the primary focuses of the exhibits, which also go into the handling of coal on the water.
