Believe it or not, but Hull has recently joined the ranks of such esteemed world cities as Istanbul, Paris, Madrid, Prague and Amsterdam to be chosen as the 2017 European Capital of Culture.
Obviously a key influence on the selection was this North East gem, Hull’s very own Rockcity Skatepark.
With an array of features, Rockcity has escalated from a just a half pipe in 1995 to the UK’s largest rhythm section and the largest plaza area as well as a ton of rails, transfers, ledges and banks, a foam pit and resi jump box. There is something in the cultural mecca for everyone!
A three-hour session will set you back the fair sum of £10 for non-members but given the vast floorspace, you’re almost guaranteed to be hitting fresh lines all the time.
