Hull, although officially called, Kingston upon Hull is a seaport created and laid out by Edward I at the end of the 13th century. The River Hull joins the Humber here and has given rise to Britain's third largest port after London and Liverpool. By the late 18th century, the o1d harbour at the mouth of this river was no longer sufficient. The first of a long line of new docks was built and filled in 150 years later. Visitors stand on it when they admire the flowers in Queen's Gardens.
The city is saturated in the traditions of the sea. Fishing fleets, cargo ships, oil tankers and, nowadays, streamlined modern ear ferries, nose past Spurn Head, 21 miles south-east, and head for the forests of derricks and cranes along miles of Hull's dockland. The docks grow almost annually to cope with a surging tide of cargo: wool from Australia and New Zealand for the West Riding mills, timber from Scandinavia, dairy products from Denmark, grain and seed for the flour mills and oil extraction plants that punctuate the Hull horizons.
Since the reign of Henry VI the Lord Mayor has ranked as “Admiral of the Humber”.
Trinity House began in 1369 as a guild and developed into an institution for the relief of distressed mariners, and the oldest navigational school in the country. It is now housed in a dignified Georgian building, where the practice of strewing rushes in the board room is continued.
Holy Trinity Church (272 ft. long) is one of the largest in England. This is a town of museums, including the Museum of Fisheries and Shipping and Wilberforce House, where the great abolitionist of slavery was born in 1759.
Hull also has a Wilberforce Museum, in the house where the anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce (1759-1833) was born, and good transport and maritime museums.
