There are 51 official cities in England and the list of these places have been granted city status by letters patent or royal character.
In the last two decades I have had the opportunity to visit over 30 Countries around the world but I have also had the opportunity to visit 40 of the 51 Official cities of England
There is always something profound that makes cities stand out, it could be the history, the architecture, the sceneries, the diversity of people, its identity or even simple things like the thoughts and emotions we feel when we embrace the new walls of a city.
Have you ever travelled to a new place and felt you are in familiar territory?
Travelling opens our minds into a new world of history, culture, experiences and a new transition of growth.
HULL is one of the 51 Official cities I have visited in England
FIVE GOOD REASONS TO VISIT HULL
- Hulls independence and proud municipal history are symbolized by whited phone boxes dotted around the City and its vicinities. It still has the only locally operated telephone company in the UK which says a lot about the Citys Independence and individuality. I have visited this city a few times and have been impressed with a few developments over the years.
- Hull has lots of free museums doted around the City which is also a reflection of its rich and controversial history. The Wilberforce museum (with links to slavery) can also be found in Hull.
- Hull was named The UK City of Culture in 2017 and has gone through lots of developments in the last two decades.
- The Humber bridge can also be found in the region of Hull. It held the record for the worlds longest suspension bridge for 16 year
- Hull has a vibrant and electrifying music scene. The music scene also came vibrant when it was named UK City of culture in 2017.
