Welcome to the port city of Kingston upon Hull! Hull is situated in Yorkshire, in north-east England. The city lies on the River Hull, and has a population of over 250,000. Historically, Hull was a thriving whaling and fishing port.  It is also the birthplace of William Wilberforce, who  played an influencial role in the abolition of the slave trade in the 19th century. More recently, in 2013, Hull was awarded the UK city of culture for 2017!  

Humberside Airport (HUY) is 15 miles from Hull, welcoming limited domestic and European 
flights . Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA) is 70 miles from Hull and offers more options. If you are travelling by bus or train, Hull has a combined bus and rail hub called the Hull Paragon Interchange, which is located in the city centre. (TIP: Another option for international students is to fly to Manchester Airport (MAN) or London Heathrow (LHW) and connect to Hull by bus or train).

Public transport in Hull consists mainly of an extensive bus system, which operates within the city and surrounding suburbs. Stagecoach is the main provider of buses, and in general the system is inexpensive and reliable. Hull is a very cycle-friendly city, and the local council has provided cycle lanes, so many students walk or cycle.
