5 exciting commercial properties in Kingston-upon-Hull

Kingston-upon-Hull is usually called by its simpler name, Hull. This east Yorkshire city was founded as a major port for the wool trade and has since been used as part of the fishing, whaling, trading and military supply industries. In 2017, Hull was named as the UK City of Culture – a title that’s bringing in estimated £300m to the city from increased tourism. The status also saw the city opening 131 new businesses, opening up nearly 800 new jobs. This huge boost is making Hull an increasingly attractive place to base a business, and here are some of the exciting developments on offer bound to appeal to ambitious professionals.
