In Focus: Hull

May 2016

Since being announced the UK City of Culture 2017 in 2013, it’s been an exciting time for Hull as the city has been planning to deliver 365 days of transformative cultural activity next year.

So considering all of the action that is heading for Hull next year, why not look to move to the UK’s City of Culture before it all starts?

A visit to Hull and East Yorkshire is the start of a great journey. Whether you’re walking and cycling on the Yorkshire Wolds or enjoying a city break in Hull, you are bound to have a fantastic visit.

The Yorkshire Coast is the best place to see sea birds in England at RSPB Bempton, or you could spend some time exploring the coves and open sandy beaches.

You can explore Hull’s historic old town heart and cultural venues and all the city’s museums and galleries are free to enter, so spend some time in the Ferens gallery or immerse yourself in Hull’s maritime history at the Maritime Museum.

It was also announced that The Turner Prize will also be hosted at the Ferens Art Gallery in 2017 which is due to receive more media coverage than any other art price.

Take a city tour or take it at your own pace following the famous fish train and bring the kids and enjoy highlights like the museums quarter or a visit to the award winning The Deep.

The stunning market town of Beverley has beauty in abundance, with an awe-inspiring Minster, popular racecourse, historical buildings, vibrant festivals and small town charm; there really is something for everyone. 

Given the character of this city, it’s no wonder that Help to Buy schemes are becoming increasingly popular.

With the Help to Buy scheme offering buyers a 5 year, interest free, 20% Equity Loan on the value of a property and only a 5% deposit and Shared Ownership is becoming more and more popular, there’s never been a better time to make the move.

We’ve listed a few of the developments available in Hull this month with the Help to Buy Schemes.
