Kingston Upon Hull became Raleigh’s first Sister City on October 3, 1986. Many exchanges have taken place between the two cities with the emphasis on “reciprocal home stays”.

The City of Hull is located at the mouth of the River Hull, on the Humber estuary, midway between London and Edinburgh, Scotland. Hull gained its name in 1293 when King Edward made it his northern base and supply port. Six years later, King Edward made the town a free borough by granting its first Royal Charter. This Charter still exists, preserved in Hull’s Guildhall archives. Historic and modern Hull boasts of its museums, marinas, and the Old Town conservation area, as well as its modern factories, offices, and shops. Hull is home of the scenic Queens Gardens and the Humber Bridge, the world’s longest single span suspension bridge.
