In this blog series, we’re talking to people about their connections to Hull and what the city means to them. In this post we’re chatting to Paul Schofield, Hull’s award-winning tour guide who has been leading tours of the city for more than three decades.
Thanks for chatting to us! First things first – tell us a bit more about you and your relationship to Hull.
I’m Hull born and bred and since 1988 I’ve been a freelance tour guide showing off our great city.
Great. Can you tell us about a place in the city that’s special or memorable to you?
What’s one thing we absolutely have to include in a history of Hull?
Finally, what’s your favourite thing about the city?
My favourite thing is the people. Hull is full of caring and friendly folk and they have forged a strong sense of community which is often very inspiring. It’s no surprise that the city has an excellent voluntary sector – people are very keen to offer their help and support for free.
Thanks so much for chatting to us!
