Free multi-storey parking to start this weekend - 11/11/16
Hull City Council will be offering free parking for motorists across both its multi-storey car parks from November 12, nearly three weeks earlier than last year.

Shoppers and visitors will be able to benefit from free parking in George Street and Pryme Street car parks every weekend from Saturday 12 November until Saturday 31 December.

From Thursday 24 November, both car parks will be open until 10pm on Thursdays for late-night shopping.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder with responsibility for highways and transport, said:

""By offering free parking on the weekends almost three weeks earlier than last year, we are hoping to boost local trade and attract shoppers and visitors to the city centre.

""One of the busiest shopping periods of the year is the festive season, and our city has a fantastic leisure, food and retail offer. By making this move, we want to remind residents and visitors that Hull is a city which is always open for business.""

Both car parks open from 7am - 7pm, Monday to Saturdays, on Sundays from 9am - 5pm Pryme Street car park is also open. However on Sunday 1 January 2017 they will be in operation from 9am - 10pm for the UK City of Culture In With A Bang event. Car parking charges of £1.00 per vehicle will apply.

All other car parks and on street parking charges and opening times will apply as normal.
