Kingston upon Hull is a city in the North East of England, situated on the River Humber, making it Yorkshire's only maritime city. With a population of over 284,000 people and spread over 71 kilometres squared, it is the fourth largest city in Yorkshire.
The city centre consists of three shopping centres, two Victorian arcades, an indoor market and a huge variety of independent shops, as well as restaurants, pubs, two cinemas, and a selection of leisure activities ranging from ten pin bowling and laser quest to escape rooms and a trampoline park. There is also a bustling marina and a city centre park (Queens Gardens) situated on an old dock.
A wide mix of architecture sits side by side, with Victorian cobbled streets just a stone's throw away from art dec buildings, 60s brutalist tower blocks and top-of-the-range modern apartment blocks.
Hull was UK City of Culture in 2017, and the city centre plays host to several outdoor events and festivals including Freedom Festival, Humber Street Sesh, Hull Pride, Yum! Food Festival, Hull Folk & Maritime Festival and Hull Street Food Nights. There are also two theatres, a music hall, a 3,500 capacity arena, seven free museums, ten art galleries, and several independent live music venues. It is also home to the world's only submarium - The Deep.
