Hull, or Kingston-upon-Hull to use its full title, has gone through something of a cultural reinvention in recent years. From once being known as a town to avoid, it has blossomed to turn around its image, being announced the City of Culture in 2017 - and new visitors to the city will quickly see why. The east Yorkshire town is now a haven for fashionable nightspots, art and music scenes and innovative start-ups. It’s also not a secret that Hull has some of the best nightlife anywhere in the UK.
Not only is Hull experiencing something of a cultural renaissance, it is also seeing increasing investment from organisations looking for bases in the UK, outside of London, as well as small startups looking to take advantage of cheaper overheads. Hull is therefore making its mark as an important business location.
Whatever your reason for visiting Kingston-upon-Hull, you’re sure to find it hides a wealth of cultural attractions, world-class restaurants and an unforgettable atmosphere.

Hull offers some fantastic accommodation options, to suit every taste and budget. Where you choose to stay will depend largely on the reason for your visit, but anywhere in the city proper will make for a good location thanks to its reasonably small size. If you are visiting Hull on business, or planning a longer stay in the town, then serviced apartments may provide the best solution for your needs - as they can offer a kind of home-from-home that is often more desirable for extended stays.
We present a wide range of such properties, ranging from luxury apartments to contemporary corporate housing. Each has been selected to meet the highest standards of interior quality and specifically sought based on the desirability of its location. Our properties offer a degree of privacy and comfort that traditional accommodation simply cannot match, such as fully-stocked kitchen facilities for true self-catering, or stylish furnishings based on current trends. Our customer service team is always on hand to ensure you find the perfect place to enjoy your stay in Hull.
Hull is a city fiercely proud of its heritage and this is reflected in its multitude of museums, galleries and celebrated landmarks. Ferens Art Gallery offers an extensive collection of European art, whilst the Humber Street Gallery holds both contemporary and traditional exhibits. Hull Maritime museum pays homage to the city’s importance as a trading port, and there are also several tours of the Spurn lightship and the Arctic Corsair. Those visiting the city with family will enjoy the Deep - a huge aquarium, or the Dinostar museum. For evenings, both Hull New Theatre and Hull Truck Theatre offer a diverse and innovative collection of entertainments.
Hull also features some of the best shopping facilities in east Yorkshire, with four large scale shopping malls. St Stevens Shopping Centre, on Ferensway, hosts over 50 high street brands, with a similar amount in the nearby Princes Quay. The Prospect Centre is also nearby, whilst the North Point centre is a little further away, but offers a huge selection of shops and eateries.
Whilst Hull is a great place to explore by simply strolling through its historic streets, it is also served by a reliable and modern public transport infrastructure. The local bus service offers regular routes towards Leconfield, Easington and Howden, which are all covered by the PlusBus card for added discount on multiple journeys. There are also several Megabus services running to other major UK cities, for those seeking to travel to Hull on a budget.
Hull Paragon Interchange is the central bus and train transport hub, which combined offer services to most of the UK. There are direct train services to York, Sheffield and Manchester, as well as an expedited service to London Kings Cross - featuring a journey time of around two and a half hours, depending on the service.
