Hull and East Yorkshire are full of energy. It's not just because of the huge Humber Estuary petroleum port with easy access to North Sea refineries. Hull has a heritage-packed Museum Quarter, a chic marina and is surrounded by rolling hills. The region is an area for renewable energy and pharmaceutical discovery. Wind farms, country houses and market towns dot the rolling Yorkshire Wolds. See resident artist David Hockney's abstract take on the countryside at Ferens Art Gallery in Hull centre. Submerse in business at The Deep "submarium" with its oceanic tunnel, or dine with clients in art deco splendour with views of the heritage coast at the grand Spa theatre in Bridlington.
