Guest Post: There's No Place Like Hull


Didn’t it get voted as the “Crappiest Town in the UK” years ago? Yes… but it’s also been voted as the Top 10 Cities to Live in the World (THE WORLD PEOPLE!) – and did you also know it’s the City of Culture 2017?

I’m a fully fledged Hullian – born and raised in Hull and it always have a place in my heart. When people ask me where I’m from, I’m proud to talk about my hometown. Yes… even with the orange barriers (which FYI – sorry UK for the national shortage of them!)

So what’s so great about Hull? Here’s my top 10 reasons.

  1. We don’t have red telephone boxes… we have cream ones!
