About Hull

Hull’s long and storied history has seen it as a market town, global trading hub, industrial powerhouse and, most recently, 2017’s UK City of Culture. Significant investment continues to stoke Hull’s fires, making it a fantastic up-and-coming location to live.

With plenty to do, see, eat and drink, not to mention great transport links and education opportunities, and plenty of new developments, Hull is an outstanding choice if you’re looking for a new build.

Things to do

There’s plenty to do in Hull and perhaps unsurprisingly, the sea plays a large part in local culture. The impressive aquarium The Deep is definitely worth a visit, and the Hull Marina is packed full of entertainment including bowling, picturesque afternoon strolls and a variety of fantastic eateries.

For a taste of history, there’s the Old Town and Museum Quarter. The newly-reopened Ferens Art Gallery was one of the highlights of the City of Culture year, and even hosted the Turner Art Prize. Hull Truck Theatre is one of the most popular and acclaimed independent theatre groups in the country, and the city has a wide range of music venues to go with its proud history of pop music groups, including the Beautiful South and Everything but the Girl.

There’s also one of Hull’s most famous creations, the Humber Bridge. When it was completed, it was the longest bridge in the world and remains an incredible feat of engineering and source of local pride to this day.


Along with the Humber Bridge, which connects Hull to destinations south of the river, the city is well-served with transport links, including the M62 which runs all the way through Leeds and Manchester to Liverpool on the other side of the country. Within the city, the Hull Paragon Interchange is the main transport hub with 24,000 people passing through it every day, while bus services run across the city and are easily accessible with a Hull Card. To travel further, Hull is connected to Zeebrugge and Rotterdam by ferry, while Humberside Airport and Robin Hood Airport are both within an hour’s drive.


The University of Hull was founded in 1927 and has around 20,000 students, some of whom are at its Scarborough campus. Other notable institutions in the city include the Hull York Medical School and the Hull School of Art, which dates back to 1861.
