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.

"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
