We visited Hull to pay homage to Philip Larkin (there is a trail that you can follow) and had quite low expectations of the city, given its status in the book: "Crap Towns" - but we were pleasantly surprised by its various nooks and crannies. Some lovely looking old pubs and Georgian houses.

Me and my girlfriend live in te old town area and love it. It has loads to offer. The pubs and bars are great and wise choice of real ales. And plenty of nice places to eat.

Loved it. We were given advice directions and people were helpful. Pub staff and landlords were willing to talk and listen.

Although I have a motive, the many splendid pubs in the area that sell Real Ale - a wander down Scale Street is probably the best.
