Kampervan, don't you have a link or something to enlighten us? Maybe this one will suffice. Whatever the case, I have to say that I, a Californian, thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Hull. Les from Hull gave us a wonderful tour along the path marked by brass fish on the sidewalk, and I saw a lightship in the harbor....er, harbour, and the museum was terrific (don't remember which museum it was, but it had a tidal inlet behind it that didn't have any water).

Joe
The announcement had only been made about 3 minutes before I posted
and so I didn't have a link, but yes, yours is a good start. I'm sure
there will lots of other sites soon.

I think that most people didn't think that Hull stood much of a chance
because it gets a lot of criticism (much of it unfounded). One
organisation even said that Hull should be closed! But it's got a
great musical tradition to go with its fishing industry and this
announcement could help it tremendously.

Other than that, having been brought up in Grimsby, traditional rivalries prevent me from saying anything too complimentary, but I did visit Hull quite often and it does have some good things going for it.

Cheers

I spend a lot of time in Hull. I see all sides of the place and reckon it needs a break. Glasgow was a city of culture with its less celebrated areas and so should Hull.

Philip Larkin. William Wilberforce. .... Most days I cross the Humber Bridge and still look forward to the views as you start to cross.

Yeah. Good for them.

Now, did anybody mention the award-winning loo that they had in Hull, or don't they have that loo any more? I Googled for pictures of that picturesque loo with its hanging plants and all, and didn't find it. Could it be that the loo has been removed?

I come from Racine, Wisconsin, another city with a serious inferiority complex, so I immediately took a liking to Hull.

"Hull has its own sudden elegancies. People are slow to leave it, quick to return. And there are others who come, as they think, for a year or two, and stay a lifetime, sensing that they have found a city that is in the world yet sufficiently on the edge of it to have a different resonance."
That quote from Philip Larkin, read by Tom Courtenay in the City of Culture bid video, rings true for Mary and me; we came for three years in 1974 and are still here.And very happy with the city and it's culture. Well done to all involved.

Yes, yes, yes, the full official name is as you say :-)

However the name is good enough for the city council - see Hull C C website, for the University of Hull, for Hull F.C. and for most of the residents.

So it's good enough for me.

Have a great day Hull. It's a good excuse for a drink and a song.

No. Named after the city. The NHS has a habit of agonising over titles, not that you'd notice... Say "Kingston" in Hull and people will say yes, I pay my phone bill to them.

(Interestingly, Hull is the legal name of the former. NHS trusts are (I'm being boring now) in law statutory instruments under The NHS Act 1977. So the official title is "The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Act 1998". So the law and indeed Parliament recognise Hull as a geographical entity....)

Now go and find your missing "ert." Missing things in Hull usually end up on The Bransholme estate, so unless you want to bid for it on eBay next week, I suggest you pop over now get looking! ;->

At school in the 50s we Hullensians were always told that Hull was the third largest port in the country after London and Liverpool. Times have changed but any city that can boast both the Watersons and The Housemartins can't be all bad culturally. Not to mention Mick Ronson and most of the Spiders from Mars as well as Tom Courtenay singing the original version of Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter.

Well done (Kingston-upon)Hull.

Many fond memories spent there in my RAF days. Great place for entertainment of all kinds. And lots of lovely villages close by....at least there were circa 1960 !!!!

The spotlight will be on now and I expect that the City will be "tarted up" ready for the future sightseers.

Didn't do Liverpool any harm.

Pleased would be too inadequate a description of how I feel about the award.

However, I do have reservations and hope that the city makes a better job of running this celebration.

It certainly bombed with its 700th charter anniversary in 1999 when the
person chosen to organise that event left before the event happened under something of a cloud.

In the end very little happened for the relatively large amount of money thrown at it and most people in Hull would have difficulty in even knowing that such an event did occur.

Good question OG! I note several councillors were bleating about Hull's maritime culture on the box. They can speak the speak but......

The short answer is, we haven't given up yet despite Terry bleeding Geraghty and his team.

Of course we deserve it. Some bloody marvellous stuff at some of the Freedom Festivals, The Clipper Race start, The Deep, KC stadium.

And Rob, we haven't been a King's town since we told one of them to piss off during the Civil War. Ull is Ull and ever will be.

Ah, yes, the bombs! Me mam was at the pictures during the Blitz period when she had a funny premonition in the middle of the film. She convinced her mates to leave with her and a few minutes later the whole place was flattened.

A few years later as a toddler I was larkin around on the bombed buildings at the end of our street when somebody threw a half brick and split me head open. Well, that's my excuse!

It's okay to mention the bombs now. In fact there's a marvellous exhibition of the whole show down Whitefriargate.

Loved Hull, lived there for a few years in the sixties when I was working on Humberside on various oil plants. I had a look around the old place a few years back and was very impressed with the changes. The marina area is fantastic, changed a lot since I used to go to work every day on the Wingfield Castle and a few other paddle steamers. Some good old pubs around the docks, marvellous....Good look with the City of Culture venture....

I always knew that this sort of thing was BOUND to happen , after being offered an unconditional place to read Dutch at Hull University and , on reading the prospectus , discovering that there was a thriving "Sheep Appreciation Society " !!

One detailed version of the Dalesman's Litany is here. The optional element of the Halifax Gibbet is quite trenchant.

Your post consists of three statements: that you no longer live in Britain, that you have moved on to what you described as greener pastures and that "dung-hills are the    enviroments better suited to the brits".

The phrase 'greener pastures' is used to imply somewhere better. You have moved somewhere better. You state that dunghills are a better environment for British people. It is therefore logical to assume you are living on a dunghill.

As I type I am in the Café Nero on the main square looking over at some of the wonderful buildings. The sun is shining and yeah, nice place.

Mind you, trying to fit in a bit of Christmas shopping and assumed being in a city this would be easy.

The largest shop in town, forgive me if I'm wrong, is a Primemark?

Mind you, might bring Mrs Musket here. It certainly is better value. Last time I took her to Leeds she instantly found the Harvey Nicks. Grrr. I reckon Phones 4 U is about as cosmopolitan as it gets. Hopefully the focus from the year of culture might interest investment and get the place the trappings of a city it deserves. You need a mixed economy and the posh shops drag in the money.

See Beverley for details. Im off there now because bizarrely the Rohan shop is there not here.

Yeah. Many a time.

It wasn't dissing the place. After all I am working to raise the quality of services in the area. I just feel it lacks the commerce of most major cities. This culture exposure is an opportunity to get the ball rolling.

Most of my colleagues live on the West or North end, Swanland, Beverley etc. I was taken by how most of them say they have to travel to Leeds or York to have a real good shopping spree.   This is the money leaking out of the city in its small way. It is an example not an end but please take this in the way intended, Hull has the space, capacity and population range to cater more up market and the overall investment that gives to the city. I have often defended Hull by saying it has a lower self esteem than it deserves.

I love the place but it needs a dimension. A large River Island near the coldest Starbucks ever opened isn't an end, it's a beginning if the city centre is to thrive.

Most cities can draw in visitors from a radius, the size of which depends upon the size of the city. In spite of the Humber Bridge, the places that we in Hull can draw from are limited.
But we have other things than shops. The Deep is very successful. Visit the City's museums and art gallery, which are brilliant (and free!). Or trace your way around the Old Town by following the Fish Trail (details from the tourist information centre in Queen Victoria Square).
For those with more specialised tastes, we can show you more hand-pulled ales in the space of a hundred yards that you could shake a tankard at! And on Wednesday afternoons this area also features the Hull and District Elderly Gentlemen's Afternoon Binge-Drinking Club (Folk Music Section), possibly the most cultural event in the future City of Culture.
Our biggest city centre shops would be Hammonds (House of Fraser), Debenhams, British Home Stores. They're all bigger than Primark. But like with everywhere else shopping in Hull is moving away from City Centres. Get in touch next time you're over and we'll culture you up!

Kevinoaf = you make the same assumption about me. I had considered the possibility that your spelling and grammar indicated that English is not your mothertongue, but decided that you are just a troll with bad typing skills. It's such fun to bait trolls.

Kevinoaf. Firstly, congratulations on the correct use of a capital letter at the start of your post. This is a great improvement. The use of the comma is also correct - well done - but unfortunately you have missed out the space after the comma.

From BBC News Live Text 0643:

Phillip Norton in Hull says the surge over topped some of the defences in the city - many shops and business in the city centre have been damaged by flooding. He says he has heard stories of people being rescued from the tops of their cars such was the speed of the incoming water.

City of Sub-Culture?

Here's another good piece of news for Hull, the POD coffee shop has reopened on St Andrew's Quay. Starbucks relinquished their tenancy last year sometime to our great sadness and surprise. The décor in the new place is fine and the view of the Humber magnificent. I'll be there at least twice a week.
