Relocate to One of Hull’s Most Bustling Shopping Streets
Holderness Road has been a thriving thoroughfare for a very long time. Originally farmland, the area hosted numerous windmills for many years. Only one remains, which now takes the form of The Mill, a popular pub.
The area is also the location of Garden Village, which stretches between Holderness Road and James Reckitt Avenue. Opened in 1908, the ambitious housing development was heavily funded by Sir James Reckitt, with two-thirds of the village allocated to his workers. Today, Garden Village is still a beautiful place to live, with the streets as charming and well-kept as the houses that line them.
Further up Holderness Road is East Park, the largest green space in Hull. Containing a boating lake, a Victorian Khyber Pass, a maze, splash boat, animal centre, sprawling playing fields, a visitor centre with large café and the serene Valley Ornamental Gardens, it really is an amazing place to visit. Adjoining the park is Woodford Leisure Centre, which reopens in early 2018 following a major refurbishment.
Holderness Road itself is also great for shopping. With Morrisons at one end and Asda, Matalan, McDonald’s and DW Sports Fitness at the other, the area in-between hosts countless small businesses and independent shops. From carpets to groceries and takeaways to charity shops, you have everything you need right on your doorstep. There’s also a Boyes department store, plus a range of pubs and coffee shops, making it a busy shopping destination for people across the city.
Numerous flats are available down Holderness Road and many additional homes of all types can be viewed down its adjoining streets. Due to the area being so busy and highly populated, it has primary schools, GP surgeries, a dentist, opticians, veterinary practice and a range of other essential amenities spread throughout.
A great place to live for families, young professionals and retired couples alike, the Holderness Road area is considered one of Hull’s iconic neighbourhoods. This is due not only to the centuries of history behind it, but the continuation of community spirit and friendliness that fuels its strong character.
