Hull is one of the great historic trading centers of northeast England. Severely hit by industrial decline, it has recently begun to see substantial regeneration. Exciting new architectural projects reflect the fierce pride of the community and relate closely to the city’s magnificent maritime history. Filled with numerous maps, plans, and superb, specially taken color photographs, this new Pevsner guide is an indispensable visitor’s companion to Hull.

David and Susan Neave are social and architectural historians based in East Yorkshire.

“This new Pevsner guide is an indispensable visitor’s companion to Hull. This is an authoritative, practical and well-illustrated guide to Hull’s buildings.”—Listed Heritage Magazine

“Characteristically for this series of city guides, the illustrations are plentiful and enticing, and there are helpful plans with suggested walking tours. And finally, the attractions covered in the volume are bulked out not just with outlying villages but also with the wonderfully rich little town of Beverley, together with a substantial stately home, Burton Constable.”—Roger White, Historic House

"[this guide] is written by local experts with critical understanding [is] beautifully illustrated, and will enhance any visit to this great city.”—Context

"Before you read it you can sense you have a treat in store. It’s compact, easy to use, with sensible uncluttered maps and full-colour pictures…Extremely well-organised…This book is meant to be used, but it is equally appropriate for less energetic types whose hobby is serendipity and who prefer to sit in an armchair and browse."—John Markham, Hull Daily Mail

“…..a useful account of the city’s evolution and, like the entire book, illustrates the authors clear depth of knowledge.”—Joanna Smith, Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain
