We Know a Place…

  • That is a historic waterfront city just 2½ hours from London by train.
  • Where you can breakfast with penguins or dine in a lifeboat station!
  • Where LCD technology was invented and that has the fastest fibre broadband in the UK.
  • That is the shellfish capital of Europe and where local delicacies are pattie and chip spice.
  • Where the world’s largest offshore wind farm is located, and the UK’s largest port complex.
  • That was UK City of Culture in 2017 and winner of Most Group Friendly UK Destination Award – twice!
  • That has recently seen over £110 million invested in hotels and venues – including a new £36 million conference centre – the Bonus Arena.
