The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Hull, City of Culture 2017

If you're looking for a new city-break destination, and some world-class art and culture, Hull is the place to be in 2017. Designated as the UK's City of Culture, it's pulling out all the stops with a year-long festival of events, concerts, shows, theatre, dance, music, film and art. 'You name it, we've got it', they say and you better believe it. Things kicked off with an amazing sound-and-light show in the city centre, and spectacular fireworks over the River Humber, and there's something happening every single day until 31 December 2017. And Hull itself? After years in the doldrums, this year-long event could be just the kick-start it needs, though locals have always thought it pretty cool in the first place. Head on over to happening Hull and check out the atmospheric Georgian old town, riverside and marina, the classic pubs, great independent shops, and a new slew of bars, cafes and restaurants. As the football fans of Hull FC like to chant, 'You're only here for the culture!'.
