Hull is one of the great historic trading centres 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 colour photographs, 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. The core of the city is the Old Town with its medieval churches, 17th and 18th-century merchants' houses and Victorian and Edwardian commercial and public buildings. Detailed walks explore the waterfront area with its exciting recent developments and the Georgian and later suburbs with their many hidden delights. Excursions include the outstanding market town of Beverley. The wide-ranging introduction, specially taken colour photographs and numerous maps make this an essential reference work and easy-to-use visitor's companion.
