Beverley Tourist Information Centre moving
Beverley’s Tourist Information Centre in Butcher Row will close this Saturday (December 16th) ahead of a move to a new location in the New Year in the Treasure House in Champney Road. The TIC is operated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, who say the move to a council-owned building secures the service’s long-term future in the town.
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture at East Riding Council, said: “This is a positive move for our tourist information services. As the lease on Butcher Row was coming to an end, the council took the opportunity to assess various options for where the TIC could go. Moving to the Treasure House was seen as the best way forward. It’s only 175 yards away from Butcher Row and within one of Beverley’s most iconic cultural venues.”
Assurances have been given that services will remain the same and staffing levels will not be affected by the move. The Treasure House is already home to Beverley’s library as well as the East Riding’s archives and local studies service. It is also the home of Beverley Art Gallery and additional facilities, such as a café and toilets.
