SEND FLOWERS TO HULL
Kingston upon Hull, in east Yorkshire, has undergone a remarkable recovery over the last century. From an industrial powerhouse, the city was destroyed almost overnight by heavy bombing which destroyed 95% of the city, making it the second most destroyed city in the UK in World War II after London. Now, it has been announced that Hull will be the UK City of Culture in 2017. One feature which Hull is known for and sets it apart from the crowd are its unusual phoneboxes. Whilst in London and most of the UK you will find red phoneboxes, in Hull all phoneboxes are painted a cream colour and are operated by a local company, a clear sign of a city which sticks to its heritage and its roots. Hull is also paired with the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, showing what an important international city it has become. Many of its residents have links abroad or far away, so if that includes you and you want to send flowers to Hull with FloraQueen's international flower delivery service then you can be sure that your bouquet will brighten up their day.
