The Langley will include a signature restaurant plus a bar specialising in the finest cognac and cigars.

The Langley Spa will be a world-class wellness centre and will feature indoor and outdoor pools, thermal areas and five expansive treatment rooms.

New meeting space has just opened at the K2 building, a multi-functional workspace complex in Hull city centre. 

The new K2 Training Centre is located on the first floor of the K2.

It will seat up to 40 delegates and is equipped with state-of-the-art AV technology and screens.

The facility is designed to provide a corporate space for companies to host staff or client training sessions away from their offices.

The K2 building also features a gym, sky garden rooftop space and a Yoga studio.

From the end of June 2018 abseiling will be available from the roof of the K2 building every weekend.

The new event will be held every Saturday and Sunday and is being organised by a York-based firm Lost Earth Adventures.

Starting from the 13th floor and heading downwards, the K2 is said to provide the ideal venue for abseiling. Delegates are promised a great and perhaps hair-raising view of the city and beyond.
