The Hull History Centre is located on Worship Street just opposite the old central fire station and a short distance from the New Theatre. See below for directions for people travelling by car or public transport.
Due to building works for the redevelopment of the former Central Fire Station, from Monday 11 July 2022 Worship Street will be closed between Freetown Way and the Hull History Centre car park. As a result, no traffic will be able to enter or exit Freetown Way from Worship Street.
The road closure is necessary to ensure the safe movement of construction vehicles and Hull New Theatre touring company vehicles.
The History Centre short stay car park has 51 spaces including 4 disabled parking spaces.
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.
