This comprehensive, full-color guidebook describes all the architecturally significant buildings in Liverpool, the city selected as European Capital of Culture for 2008. The book includes suburban areas of interest and excursions to notable sites farther out. Major buildings—such as the Town Hall, St George’s Hall, and the two Cathedrals—receive extended treatment; the streets of the business district are dealt with alphabetically; and the rest of the city—including the docks—is covered in a series of carefully planned walks. Based on Nikolaus Pevsner’s original text for the Buildings of England, the book is augmented by close study of Liverpool’s buildings themselves and by extensive new research. It is an authoritative work of reference as well as a practical handbook for visitors and residents walking in the city.
