The ancient English city of Hull is staging the Allam British Open for the seventh time.
While squash is a key reason to visit in May, Hull has plenty more to offer from the cobbled streets of the city's Old Town to the rich array of museums and the spectacular aquarium – The Deep – home to a whopping 3,500 species of fish.
Visitors can also take a stroll along the Marina to the retro fruit market, home to an abundance of new creative and cultural venues including the world's only Museum of Club Culture alongside art galleries and eateries.
All matches will be staged at the University of Hull in their new, purpose-built sports centre.

An all-glass court, complete with spectator seating, will be erected solely for the tournament and will see the University, which has been host to qualification and first round matches for the past five years, expand its support of the prestigious tournament.
