From the city that has brought you everything from LCD technology and world class poets such as Andrew Marvell and Philip Larkin to Yorkshire Puddings and boiled sweets, we're quickly taking our place as one of Yorkshire's hotspots.

We celebrate our rich maritime history and reputation of being leaders in pursuing social justice - to honour one of our most famous sons, William Wilberforce, who fought a long campaign to bring about the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act.
