My hometown of Dover just got worst place in the UK to live so you can deflect the hate towards Hull now, there's a new king on the block now..


What's wrong with Dover, incidentally?
 



To be fair it's going through a massive load of regeneration. There's a big Shopping, Hotel, Resturant and Cinema complex being constructed near the town centre and there's the on-going development & revival of the Western Docks.
 
http://www.doverport.co.uk/dwdr/
 
Once these things have been completed it'll be a pretty nice place to visit. We have Cruise ships calling in all year round and once they pass by the seafront it's pretty embarrasing in the town centre. Countless betting shops, second hand shops, and charity shops.
 
Dover, especially in the town centre areas has always been a rough place. Even now it's a horrible place after dark, and nights out aren't that pleasant.
 
Hopefully the tens of millions being spent will make it a nicer place for my kids to grow up in.


In some ways that sounds similar to Hull mate. Plenty of regeneration and of course the North Sea Ferries, but I think every town has betting shops and cheapo pound shops.
I'm sure your kids will 'grow with the town' too and learn the ropes to become streetwise.

Moved to Hull out of choice just over a year ago. Originally from Beverley which was voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country, grew up thinking Hull was a sh*thole and looking in from the outside it does appear to be. 
 
Since moving I still think much of Hull is a sh*thole but it's also so much more than that and it's not until you live here that you start to discover the good bits, many of which someone passing though would ever encounter! Oh, and the people are some of the friendliest you'll come across
 
Don't regret leaving the picturesque quintessential British town of Beverley one bit..Loving Hull warts 'n' all
 
Anyhow, there's a real buzz around a city, big investment, massive re-development and it's an exciting place to be at the minute. It may not compare to other northern cities (it's only 1/3 size of Leeds) but it is on the up and slowly shaking off its bad rep. 
 
Regardless of peoples opinions about the 'worth' of the city of culture tag the opening week of events have been spectacular!

Trunks - You best me to it with the 'Helpful' tag. Drat! Nice to see someone who has actually experienced Hull for what it is and providing an honest and genuine post
 
I live on the road to Beverley now myself, on the outskirts of Hull and it's good to see a equal mixture of both towns. It's also the first time I've seen anyone else from East Yorkshire on the site, so we'll keep the flag flying for our downtrodden country bud We are friendly on the whole, though many of the older folk are set in their ways a little with their grudging, militant attitude, which sadly is a factor. It would be better if they were a little more positive in their outlook sometimes and make an effort to be sociable without viewing the world as a place that has 'got it in for them'. But again, that happens anywhere I guess, Everyone is different.
 
But with the increase in trade and industry, together with some great 'cultural' bars and restaurants, superb visitor attractions and an unequalled historical heritage, like yourself GoodIntentions, I finally see Hull as a very progressive city. Thanks for posting bud

Brexit won't affect Hull at all. Same for most of the Northern serfs. We shall all sit back and watch the Southerners continue to get their knickers twisted up whilst we enjoy life.

I'm still confused (maybe I'm a thick Northerner or something?), but pardon me if I'm insulting....I thought you were actually a Southerner, Ras?
 
Without wanting to get into a North-South divide-type thread (that's been done countless times, yawn), who believes that life down south is sweeter than that up north? Rail disputes, Underground strikes, the NHS at a critical point in London hospitals more than anywhere else etc etc....
...or do some people still really judge how good their lifestyle is depending on their financial income? At the end of the day what defines our happiness? Friends, where one lives, money? Or just how you prioritise your needs?
 
North and South doesn't enter into it. Life's what you make it.

That's a big negative Floydy I'm as Northern as they come. From Blackpool. I just happen to speak properly and worked in London and abroad since I graduated.

Are you speaking from learned experience....or are you yet another yawnsome thriver on unfounded ignorance? I suspect the latter.

Experience. I've travelled to Hull on several occasions and I've yet to find a more enjoyable experience there beyond deciding to leave.
