The best areas in and around Hull to move to

Kingston upon Hull is a city with a lot going for it. It was named UK City of Culture in 2017, and it boasts a series of incredible buildings and landmarks, along with ample parkland. It is, in other words, a city worth moving to. It’s relatively affordable, too, with house prices sitting at around £138,000.

But exactly which locations in Hull are going to appeal to would-be house-buyers?


Recently, this little piece of Hull was named by the Sunday Times as one of the top ten best places to live in the North. Beverley actually sits around fifteen miles outside of the city, and offers an amazing retail hub, a racecourse, and several high-class restaurants. It’s a historic market town which comes with its own Minster, and it’s sure to appeal to those looking for a balance between quaint tradition and modern convenience. If you’re the sort of person who likes to wander around town during market days, this is an excellent place to do it.


You’ll find this seaside town just northeast of the city. It’s a great option for those looking to spend time beside the sea, thanks to a tranquil blue-flag beach. Nearby, you’ll also find the largest freshwater lake in Yorkshire, where more than two hundred and fifty birds reside.

This area was once a haven for smugglers, who would use every available cave and grotto to stash their illicit goods. Nowadays, it’s better known for its retail centres, and its seaside and wildlife-based activities.

Thanks to a series of new build developments in Hornsea, there’s a healthy supply of homes in the area.


This suburb is among the most in-demand parts of Hull. You can access the city centre via the incredible Humber Bridge. Property here is slightly more expensive than it is elsewhere, thanks to the ease with which residents can get into town. Since this advantage isn’t going to go away, we can be fairly sure that the investment will hold its value in the long term.

But residents here also benefit from a series of local conveniences. There are several high-quality local schools, as well as a sizeable retail park.

Victoria Dock

What if you’d prefer to live near the city centre? Victoria Dock is sure to appeal. You can walk into the city from here in just thirty minutes, or drive the same distance in seven minutes. If you’d like to take a walk through the countryside, the docks might be especially attractive; the Trans Pennine Trail runs along the Humber, just here. So, if you’d like to walk right across the country, to Manchester and Liverpool, you can start the trip here.
