Britain By Car - A Motoring History


Strictly known as Kingston upon Hull, the city stands on the north bank of the Humber estuary at the mouth of the River Hull.

The name is derived from the new town laid out by King Edward I (1239-1307) on the site of an abbey previously occupied by Cistercian monks.

The City’s history is built around trade and fishing, and it is today still a port of great importance.
