Hull is a city consisting of around 250,000 people. It’s situated on the edge of the River Humber and just a few miles from the East Yorkshire coast. Home to the iconic Humber Bridge and The Deep, the city is emerging as one of the country’s most important cultural, commercial and industrial hubs.
Investment is pouring in and so are the visitors. It is estimated that around 342,000 people celebrated Hull’s first week of events as the UK’s City of Culture in 2017; and since winning the bid, the Council has welcomed around £1 billion in investment – including £100 million into new venues and visitor attractions that will create new jobs in the city and a lasting legacy for the city of Hull.
As Hull’s popularity grows, so does the desire to work, spend time and live in Hull. Rough Guide ranked Hull between Amsterdam and Vancouver in its 2016 list of top ten places in the world to visit and the Council has even applied for UNESCO World Heritage site status for its Old Town. If granted, the area would join The Sphinx and Great Wall of China as a place of global importance meaning that Hull is very much on the map.
