Anyone who lives/even been/ in/to Hull or knows anything about the place, is it a good city? I heard that it is rubbish

The reason I am asking is because I might choose to go to the University of Hull next year - it is the only uni that does Computer Games Development :D

I've got two friends who went to Newcastle to do Computer Games Programming/Designing - try there instead

^ I heard that Newcastle was still a very industrial city and very grey etc. you know if that's true?

no, that would be Coventry that you're thinking of there. :(

Well come one - it's gotta be better than a traditional fishing town! Hull's near Grimsby isn't it? That kinda settles that one, although admittedly I couldn't live any further from the north (yay for the sunny south) so I shan't entirely base my opinions on stereotypes. No complaints from my friends though and sounds like a good university as well.

ahh although I must add, I really meant Teeside Uni, which is within the vicinity - Warwick's a well respected Uni nearby - considered there (if it offers your course)?

Oh right.

Nah; Warwick is far too close to my parents :eek: I must get as far away as physically possible (St Andrews...).

Does Newcastle do it? ad no idea, damnit I should have grabbed a prospectus at the fair in Thursday earlier this week. I'll have to try and grab one from somewhere else (such as the university itself). Yeah, ok, I'll think about it.

Oh, and to everyone else, cheers for your replies.

I've seen what goes into the river >.< eugh. It goes through Leeds & my town, and the other that it joins with goes through Wakefield, so it gets full of dirty horrible things before it gets here, then it gets full of excess chemicals from the chemical plant in my town, past a sewage works (gets stuff from there too), gets excess crap from 2 or 3 power stations, then it gets to go through Goole and Hull. Its not very nice!
Its also scabby and not really a nice place in general.. and its cold & rainy lots.
