The car park at the Treasure House is now completely closed until early autumn, 2024, when it is hoped that the £3.3 million Treasure House transformation will be complete.

The closure will allow the Princes Gardens car park site to be used as a site compound for the contractors, and a works area. The closure will mean that construction activities on the site will be kept segregated from the general public, ensuring a safe area. Alternative car parking will be available at East Riding Theatre (evenings and weekends); Grayburn Lane; and the railway station.

The Tourist Information Centre, Beverley Art Gallery, the Treasure House museum and the café will all reopen in the new Champney Treasure House in 2024. It will also house a new customer service centre and enhanced library, and a new location within the building for the reference library, while the council’s registration services will relocate there from Walkergate House.

The library has reopened in a temporary location across the road in County Hall, and the Tourist Information Centre has temporarily relocated to the Customer Service Centre in Cross Street.
