2at109 enjoys a lovely, quiet and leafy location, close to the lively nightspots of Princes and Newland Avenues, and convenient for the city centre of Kingston-upon-Hull. It’s near the University, sporting venues, transport links including the Ferry Terminal, and major attractions.
Hull itself is a vibrant Yorkshire city with a strong and proud maritime heritage – it has, after all, been a port for more than 800 years – and first-time visitors are often surprised and impressed by all it has to offer.
Hull has been cited in the top 15 city destinations by the Guardian/Observer (above Leeds, Lincoln and Harrogate), while in the same poll, P&O North Sea Ferries – which sails between Hull and Rotterdam or Zeebrugge - won best ferry crossing.
With excellent transport links – you can be in London in 2.5 hours by rail, catch a flight from Humberside, Robin Hood (Doncaster Sheffield) or Leeds airports or board the ferry to northern Europe – this is one of the best-connected cities in the UK and a great base for business, or simply to explore.
While you’re here, why not head up the coast to one of the many unspoilt beaches – Fraisthorpe, Tunstall or Mappleton perhaps, or visit Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough for a truly British day out.
There are nature reserves aplenty, including the awesome Spurn Point (catch it while you can!) and RSPB reserve at Bempton, home to puffins and gannets galore. It wouldn’t be Yorkshire without spectacular cliffs, and neither Flamborough nor Reighton will disappoint.
If you’re looking for tranquil, rolling fields, head for the Wolds, which so inspired the artist David Hockney, and where time seems to have stood still in the many sleepy, picture-postcard villages.
Also within driving distance are national parks the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, as well as Lincoln, Leeds and York.
Hull and East Yorkshire has plenty to satisfy the most discerning visitor. Please visit our What to Do pages for inspiration.
