City landmarks brighten up empty unit

Images of some of Hull’s most striking landmarks are being used by Hull BID to brighten up a vacant store.

Graphics of The Deep, Hull Marina and the Maritime Museum are among the scenes that now fill the display windows of the former T J Hughes store in Ferensway.

Kathryn Shillito, Hull BID City Centre Manager, said: “The agents are reporting interest in the site which is encouraging as naturally we don’t wish to see the unit remain empty for any considerable period of time.

“Meanwhile we decided to fill the windows with pictures of some of Hull’s favourite attractions. In addition to brightening up an empty building it also shows some of what the city has to offer – I hope it will encourage visitors to explore a little further.

“It is important because we need to create a good first impression, particularly as this is the first view of the city centre for many people arriving by public transport, and a lot of people drive past the building every day”.
