London has too many buildings to be characterised by one architectural style. This is due, in part, to the varying ages of its buildings with dating back as far as the 11th century, such as The Tower of London. Many of London's large, opulent, houses and public buildings, such as the National Gallery, were constructed using Portland stone. However, different parts of the city have styles of their own. For example, the area to the west of central London is characterised by white stucco buildings. Although some do exist, few of London's surviving buildings pre-date the Great Fire of 1666. Those that do may have a trace of Roman remains or are of Tudor origins.
London is also a very green city with many parks and open spaces for inhabitants and visitors to enjoy. In central London there are a number of Royal Parks: Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park which is home to London Zoo, Green Park and St James's Park. Further out from the centre there is Greenwich Park, Bushey Park, Richmond Park and Victoria Park. Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath to the north of Regent's Park are popular spots to view the ever changing London skyline.
Located in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the city of Kingston upon Hull (usually just called Hull) is to be the UK City of Culture in 2017. During that year, Hull will have undertaken a major redevelopment thanks to an £11 million funding from the government and will host many cultural events all over the city to boost tourism, jobs and the economy.
The city centre is fairly compact and mainly pedestrianised, which creates a relatively hassle-free walk around town. Bus services in Hull are operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services and Stagecoach and buses can be taken from the city's bus station, Hull Paragon Interchange. Local and national rail services can also be taken from the Interchange.
Developed from the old derelict Humber Dock in the early 1980's, Hull Marina provides space for 270 yachts and small sailing craft in its permanent and visiting berths. The area is an enjoyable stroll with some great cafes and old pubs, and hosts annual the Sea Fever Shanty Festival. Usually held on the first Saturday and Sunday in September the festival attracts major shanty singers from the United Kingdom and from around the world. The main stage is along the Prince's dock side and groups sing in the pubs near by.
