  • Hull is a good place to live, if you enjoy socialising it has a lot of good pubs, but if it's scenery you like I would advise maybe Beverley which is just on the outskirts of the city. Beverley is a quiet town and is quite picturesque..

  • There are several great parks and gardens in Hull including East Park (massive with big boating lake, cafe, childrens playgrounds, animal centre and green space), West Park (houses kc stadium, duck pond, play area and due for refurbishment soon), Pearson Park (ducks, green space, play, reptile house) and right in the city centre Queens gardens which are lovely. As previous poster says, Beverley is a nice and a fair sized town but expensive both to live and shop compared to Hull.

  • It's not a good place to live if you have children as the schools are disgusting and out of control. We had to leave Hull and fled to Hornsea when my son had a knife pulled on him at school. Even if you don't have children to consider try the outlying villages such as Anlaby or Cottingham, for a nicer place to live. They all have all the facilities you could ever want and the property prices to buy and rent are reasonable.

  • I lived as a lodger for a while with a relative in the East Riding villages and moved to Hull a few years ago after buying in the Willerby Road area. It was a bit of a shock moving from rural to suburban, but I quite like the convenience of being close to local shops, including a popular supermarket and newly built M&S. It is also close to my workplace, I can cycle around places to save money and it is easier to go out on an evening with friends in the Avenue area. So there are many advantages to make up for the disadvantages. The area is pretty quiet and the families are mostly hard working families who are quite friendly. You do get the odd young families that lack the respect of the older more established families in the area who are much more 'community orientated'. I have good neighbours, so I'm quite lucky in that respect.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
