Hull sits on the Humber estuary and has an interesting mix of grand civic buildings, industrial facilities and modern architecture.
The city has suffered from a shady reputation over the years but I found it both impressive and having plenty worthy of exploration.
The marina area has been extensively restored and Humber Street is an excellent spot for eating out. And with its independent telephone company, Hull is famed for its cream phone boxes.
The city also has a rural and coastal hinterland to visit – more on that in future posts.
