Due to the refurbishment of Hull New Theatre and the construction of the adjacent new University Technical College the Hull History Centre car park is currently occupied by contractors. Because of this there are a limited amount of car parking spaces available. There are 10 parking spaces with an additional 2 disabled parking spaces available.

Alternative long stay car parking is available at the George Street (multi-storey), Pryme Street (multi-storey), Francis Street and Trippett Street car parks. For more information on city-centre car parks, please see the City Council website

We expect this closure until the summer of 2017, we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.
