On the west side of High Street in the old town area of Hull, Maister House is a rare surviving reminder of the thriving international trade the city enjoyed in Georgian times.

A plain brick façade reflects the typical Palladian architectural fashion of the mid-18th century. However, external simplicity contrasts with an opulent interior which, the Historic England listing description concludes, “is of importance both locally and nationally.” Internally, the visual highlight is an ornate staircase and wrought-iron balustrade that leads up three floors, from the hall to an octagonal lantern.
Note: Maister House is occupied by tenants. Only the entrance hall and staircase are open on selected days.
