Hull, which unbeknownst to many is actually officially called Kingston upon Hull, is a city and unitary authority found within the ceremonial county of the East Riding of Yorkshire, in the north of England. The city is sited on the course of the River Hull at its junction with the Humber estuary, 25 miles (40 km) inland from the North Sea.
There are a number of notable landmarks and features of Hull, including its Premier League football team, cream and not red telephone boxes, historic old town and museum quarter, and its two rugby league clubs.
A Whistle-stop Tour of Hull’s History
The exact year of Hull’s establishment is unknown but the first written reference to the settlement comes from 1193 when it was actually called Wyke on Hull. It was more than 100 years later, in 1299, that the settlement was renamed Kingstown upon Hull by King Edward I due to its importance as a market town and military supply port.
After being an early theatre for a number of English Civil War battles, the city of Hull developed into a trading hub and industrial metropolis which is also notable for having been the seat of MP William Wilberforce, who was integral in abolishing slavery in the UK. After suffering from a great deal of bombing during the Second World War, Hull endured a period of economic and social deprivation but has recently recovered through a raft of redevelopment and regeneration projects.
