Think of Hull and, if we’re honest, one of the first things we’re all probably aware of is the fact the city is often the butt of unkind jokes told by stand-up comedians. It’s location at the very end of the M62 and on the extreme eastern side of Yorkshire lends it an undeserved reputation as a “lost city”. After all, even former Poet Laurette Philip Larkin – one of the city’s most famous sons – was hardly effusive about its charms.

But to focus on the negatives is a little unfair. After all, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester and even London have stereotypical images they’d probably much rather forget. Hull is really no different and, when it takes centre stage of the UK City of Culture in 2017, it will finally have an opportunity to showcase its charms in a far more positive light.

Hull actually has a rich heritage dating back to the granting of its first market charter by Edward I in 1299 and, since then has played a role as a significant fishing and commercial port. The “Hull Blitz” – deliberately kept quiet during the Second World War – may have left 95% of buildings in the city damaged or destroyed but it also provided Hull with an opportunity to rebuild with the centre now home to modern shopping arcades and commercial developments, all linked to the national rail and motorway network.

New housing has also sprung up around the suburbs, offering potential buyers plenty of choice, Affordable homes built in a mews style, two- and three-bed family houses and large four- and five-bedroom executive properties have all been included in recent residential developments, adding to the mix of Edwardian and Victorian houses and fishermen’s terraced cottages which survived the bombing in the 1940s.

Today – unlike some of the other UK cities – a budget of around £300,000 would be enough to purchase a substantial detached property with generous gardens in the affluent area of Hedon or even some of the small villages within easy reach of the city, such as Cottingham, Willerby or Anlaby. For £200,000, you could expect a pretty wide choice of three-bedroom properties, some of them modern and on the new estates, others closer to town and with a little more history.

But, whichever you choose, you would only be a short distance from The Deep – one of the most advanced aquariums in the UK, attracting thousands of visitors ever year – a diverse cultural centre boasting theatres, museums, bars and restaurant, parks and gardens, the visually spectacular Humber Bridge and a thriving gateway to Europe via the regular ferries to the continent.

With top-level football, ice hockey and rugby league played at the local stadia, there’s plenty on offer for sports fans while a vibrant music scene has produced acts like The Beautiful South, Fatboy Slim, Fine Young Cannibals and includes the city’s annual jazz festival.

So, although Hull might have to endure being the whipping boy for comics for a little longer – like Glasgow and Liverpool before it – its time in the cultural spotlight next year could see it rise in both reputation and popularity and that comparatively modest investment in property today could reap dividends in the not-too-distant future.
