The original town of Hull was established by King Edward I in the 13th century, who wanted a secure port from which he could supply his army, who were fighting the Scots. The local of Hull, then known as Kyngestone-upon-Hull, right on the River Hull and Humber Estuary was perfect for this. Soon, a thriving import and export trade developed in the area.

Subsequent monarchs used Hull as their main east coast port, having ships fitted and sent out to France and other destinations. During the 17th century King Charles I tried unsuccessfully to capture Hull, and this was the openly defiant act against the Kind in support of Parliament and Hull thus became embroiled in the Civil War.

By 1829, the construction of Hull's docks were completed and after Queen Victoria's visit in 1854, the docks, which were called Junction Docks, were renamed Prince's Dock, after Prince Albert. Soon after, in 1897, the town received its Royal Charter, making Kingston-upon-Hull a city.

For Hull, the docks continue to be an important industry, as well as source of income and wealth. Hull's fishing trade boomed during the late 1940s and 1950s, which was key to Hull's redevelopment and growth after the war. Hull is still ranked as the third largest port in England, after London and Liverpool and is also one of the world's largest fishing ports.
