There is a real passion among the local people who have lived here all of their lives and have seen the city grow and develop into the thriving hub it is now. Company managing director, Jo Andrews, from the Marketing Collective told the Daily Echo that: “There are so many reasons to visit the city.

“It is about finding and sharing the unique and quirky things about the city to encourage more weekend and day visitors, cruise passengers, businesses to invest and generally creating a positive and welcoming message.”

Being a culturally diverse city there are opportunities for everyone with a variety of restaurants and shops to suit every need and requirement as well as each exciting attraction.

Public transport is also on top form allowing easy and accessible routes to and from your desired location to take another thing off a visitors mind.
