Hull and surrounding area

As the 2017 UK City of Culture there is plenty to see and do. From the historic old town at the heart of the city to the variety of museums and galleries, Hull is a vibrant city.  Guide Dogs is based in Beverley, 8 miles from Hull, a beautiful market town in the East Riding of Yorkshire with an awe-inspiring Minster. There is a popular racecourse, plenty of historical buildings and vibrant festivals throughout the year.


A little further afield from the city there are beautiful market towns and the Yorkshire Coast which is the best place in England to see sea birds as well as having many open sandy beaches and hidden coves to explore.


The area benefits from a wide range of housing which is more affordable than many areas of the UK.
