Head to Hull

Few cities in the UK have enjoyed such a rapid turnaround in fortunes as Hull.

The city, Kingston upon Hull to give it its full name, is unrecognisable from the area that was voted as the worst place to live in Britain 12 years ago. In fact, in 2016 it was ranked as one of the top ten cities in the world.

The latter came in a Rough Guides study, as Hull finished above the likes of London, Manchester and Edinburgh.

People buying property in Hull will no doubt be thrilled at the news, but how has the city transformed itself so quickly?

Located in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull has enjoyed a boom since it was announced in 2013 that it would be the UK City of Culture in 2017. Next year is huge for Hull, not least because it also hosts the iconic Turner Prize.

Top class sport is also on offer in the city. The football club is back in the Premier League and about to face the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea, while the region is also a hotbed for rugby. Ice hockey is also increasing in popularity in this area thanks to the fortunes of the Premier League Hull Pirates team.

Lovers of history, wildlife and culture will also be at home in Hull thanks to attractions such as the Humber Bridge, East Park, Streetlife Museum of Transport and the Maritime Museum.

It also caters for all tastes, with Princes Avenue packed with bars, while Kingswood offers the perfect home for families with its excellent school and shopping. Hessle Road, meanwhile, gives a glimpse of authentic Hull and Humber Street is an up-and-coming area for those buying property in Hull to keep an eye on.

As you can see, Hull is clearly a city on the up, great news for anyone buying property for sale in Hull.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801822873-ADNFCR
