The East Riding of Yorkshire holds all manner of delights for holidaymakers. From the clean country air and rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds to the bustling market towns, there really is something for everyone. The real centre of activity in the East Riding of Yorkshire, though, is Hull. The University of Hull is one of the city's major attractions and is surrounded by numerous fabulous hotels.
A Modern University
Since opening as a public university in 1927, the University of Hull has developed into one of the nation's favourite academic institutions. The main campus in the centre of Hull serves as a centre-point for the university's 17,000 students. With such a large student body, it's no wonder students contribute so much to the culture of this vibrant city.
Space to Hire
Universities aren't only there to serve as a place of education for the young. They also serve as public, community spaces. Like most other universities, Hull offers numerous spaces to hire, suited for everything from weddings to conferences.
The type of rooms on offer will depend on the size of your event. The university offers all kinds, from the small and intimate Tranby Suite, to the huge Myton room, which comes with a dance floor, bar and lighting rig, with space for up to 240 guests.
Conference space is well-equipped with AV gear and can be configured in a variety of ways. The largest of the university's space can accommodate as many as 513 guests, subject to university activities during term time.
As the county's foremost urban area, Hull has some of the best hotels in the East Riding of Yorkshire to offer its visitors. Whether you're in town to attend an open day or are hosting an industry event, there's sure to be something which suits your needs.
Business guests will look kindly on the Holiday Inn Express on Ferensway. The modern hotel boasts a 24-hour business centre, complete with a further 1,500 square metres of conference space.
Those looking for a budget option in the centre of town will find the Campanile Hull on the northern edge of the centre.
