Hull - a Hanseatic City
Hull is one of only 3 other members of the Die Hanse (the Hanseatic League) in England, the others being Kings Lynn and Boston.

The original mediaeval Hanseatic League, which comprised a group of towns around the Baltic and the North Sea, was an extremely influential trading association and was very much a part of Hull's development and historic past. You can explore the historic heart of Hull which dates back to when Hull was a thriving port receiving and shipping goods all over the world.
