The City of Culture and invention
Hull was named the City of Culture by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in 2017. While that accolade has changed several times over the years, as the very first city to hold this title, Hull is still leading the charge when it comes to the UK’s cultural achievements.
This city has witnessed some of the country’s greatest minds and movements. William Wilberforce was a leader in the abolishment of the slave trade, Amy Johnson CBE was the first female pilot to fly from England to Australia, and both of these historic names were born in Hull. Boiled sweets and Lemsip were also both invented here, and the Hull Fair is arguably the world’s oldest travelling festival.
An interesting past paves the way for an exciting future. Investments are being made to transform the city into a UK heavyweight, so that anyone buying a home here can fully explore its cultural impact.
A sea city
Yorkshire is known for its sweeping hillsides and rugged farmland, but, as its only waterfront city, Hull has breathtaking landscapes of its own. This provides more than a fun day out - as a homebuyer, you get to immerse yourself in its rich maritime history.
The city was once home to three docks, each playing a vital role in Hull’s history, and now its Old Dock is a sleepy haven for its residents. Spend a day in the colourful The Deep, one of the UK’s biggest aquariums, the Severn Seas Fish Trail or in the free Maritime Museum - where you can see a full-scale whale skeleton. These attractions are all great fun for when the family come to visit, or as a solo day trip on a lazy weekend in your local area.
