University town in the north east of England. Was once a thriving fishing and whaling port. Gave rise to the Housemartins, the Beautiful South, Kingmaker and Everything But The Girl. Also home to the poet Phillip Larkin. Another famous resident was William Wilberforce, who was a vociferous campaigner for the abolition of the slave trade. If you visit go for a pint in the Old Black Boy. Most of the docks have now been filled in to create business and leisure parks. However, there is still a marina on the River Hull, where you can decide which boat you would buy if you won the lottery. While visiting the marina you should stop for a pint in Minerva.
