About the city of Hull, England

Kingston-upon-Hull (commonly abbreviated to 'Hull') is located where the River Hull emerges into the Humber estuary on the north-east coast of England.

Hull has a varied history from the founding of C12th Meaux Abbey, the emergence of a market town then wider trading hub, fishing and whaling activities, industrial rise then decline, extensive damage during WW2 and more recently its revival in the C21st.

Modern Hull is a centre of commercial, retail, cultural and sporting activity as well as the location of a port serving both freight and passenger vessels. Although located outside of the city itself, the Humber Bridge (shown above) is among the area's most striking landmarks. Opened in June 1981 it remained the longest of its type in the world until 1998.

Another local landmark is Hull City Stadium (below) owned by Hull City Council and home of Hull City football club.

Popular sporting activities also include rugby, golf, athletics, cycling, lacrosse, American football, ice hockey, and various watersports. Hull hosted the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race in 2009-10.
