Constituency

constit1Hull West and Hessle is a rare constituency as it consists of the vibrant Hull City Centre and stretches west along the riverbank into the green areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Hull City Centre is going through a radical transformation, already it is consistently ranked as one of the top retail outlets in the North of England. With over 850 shops and retail outlets, brandishing the big shopping names, department stores and shopping malls, it is no wonder that Hull has gained this reputation. In the centre there are over 150 places to eat and more than 7000 parking places, all just minutes from the shops.

constit2No visit to Hull would be complete without visiting the worlds only submarium, The Deep. On the waterfront in the city centre it holds a commanding position, but like an iceberg what you can see is only the tip.

With an investment of £45.5million, The Deep has put Hull in the major league of visitor destinations in the UK, and with over one million visitors in its first 15 months this unique attraction has quickly become one of the most successful Millenium Commission lottery projects in the country.

constit3If you enjoy walking there is the Humber Bridge and the Country Park on Hessle Foreshore. You can walk from there along the river to the dynamic waterfront marina with its cafes and traditional hostelries welcome all guests as they enter the city centre.

When it comes to the nightlife in Hull, the atmosphere changes and a charge runs through the city. The City Hall plays host to comedians, bands and shows. At Hull New Theatre you will find ballet, opera and pantomime. There are smaller theatres like the award winning Spring Street Theatre, restaurants all around the town, we have 37 city centre bars, 38 city centre traditional pubs but if you want your evening to go on a little longer there are two city centre casinos and ten very different night clubs catering to all tastes.
