Latest News:

Hull History Centre is currently closed for its annual stocktaking - it will re-open as normal at 9.30am on Tuesday 13th December.

Christmas Closure 
We will close for Christmas at 5.30pm on Friday 23rd December and re-open as normal at 9.30am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.

From Monday 25th April the History Centre car park will be closed to the public so that it can be used by the contractors refurbishing the Hull New Theatre and constructing the adjacent new University Technology College. We expect this closure to continue through to Autumn 2017.

Alternative long stay car parking is available at the George Street (multi-storey), Pryme Street (multi-storey), Francis Street and Trippett Street car parks.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.
