The Benefits of an Interconnected City

The Benefits of an Interconnected City

If you’re going to invest in property, you need to know that its location has strong transportation links. From commuting to work and visiting clients, to taking holidays and welcoming tourists, without good connections, a business, property market and even the local economy can falter and decline.

Luckily for Hull and those investing in it, the city is linked in practically every way to the rest of the UK and beyond.

Direct from Hull to King’s Cross

Hull Trains has been running since 2000 to critical acclaim, being named the UK’s top performing long-distance operator for four years in a row. With 92 direct services each week from Hull Paragon Interchange to King’s Cross, stopping at Brough, Howden, Selby, Doncaster, Retford and Grantham along the way, you can be in the capital in just 2.5 hours.

What’s more,  Hull Trains has invested heavily in the customer journey, installing industry-first passenger information screens, USB sockets and 4G-enabled Wi-Fi that’s accessible for free during the entirety of your journey. You can even save money by booking online at www.hulltrains.co.uk, where you’ll never have to pay a single booking fee.

Fly to Europe quickly and easily

Many companies require staff to travel abroad for meetings and conferences. This can often prove time-consuming and expensive, but not when you’re based in Hull.

Humberside Airport is only 30 minutes’ drive away, and you can even get there in an hour by bus. Being a relatively small airport, you don’t need to worry about enormous queues and having to walk miles to get to your terminal.

The most popular flights from Humberside Airport are to Aberdeen and Schipol in Amsterdam, with connecting flights to the rest of the world. This saves having to travel to another city such as Leeds, only to pass over Hull twice.

Hop on the ferry

As a historic gateway to Europe, Hull continues to provide direct sea travel to the mainland. P&O Ferries are the perfect way to visit Amsterdam, Zeebrugge, Bruges and Rotterdam, whether it’s for a business trip or a weekend of making memories with friends.

The ferries cross the North Sea daily and cost barely anything, plus you can enjoy an onboard meal and entertainment in the process, making the travel part a mini break in itself.

Direct routes to Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Thanks to the M62 and M18, it’s very easy to get to Leeds, Sheffield, York and Manchester from Hull via car, all in just 1-2 hours. Meanwhile, Liverpool, Newcastle and Birmingham are within a car journey of just 2.5 hours. Then of course there’s the Humber Bridge, which connects East Yorkshire to Lincolnshire and other centres of trade such as Grimsby and Lincoln.

All of these places are also easy to access via trains offered by a number of operators, including Northern Rail and TransPennine Express. So if you have a meeting in another town or are inviting clients over, you can rest assured that the trip won’t take up too much of the day. Plus with so many hotels available in Hull, including the new Double Tree by Hilton, it’s never been easier for visitors to get a good night’s sleep in the city centre.

Call a cab

There are plenty of taxi services in Hull, and they tend to be cheaper than in most other cities. Whilst Uber hasn’t yet made its way here, new firm Foxy 69 has invested £100,000 in the same kind of mapping software, making booking a taxi via their app a quick and painless process.
