Summer parking restrictions
During the summer months, car parking will be limited on The Deeps site. This is due to the 'marking out' and initial excavation work, as part of Hull City Council's South blockhouse project on the gravel car park to the left of the site.
From 17 to 24 July, they will mark out and interpret the ruins on the site, which will coincide with the Council for British Archaeology’s Festival of Archaeology. At the end of August, the site will be dug up to expose the ruined walls as part of the national Heritage Open Days.
Throughout this period we will be working hard to ensure visits are not disrupted, but some visitors will have to use alternative car parks in the city. All of the available car parks close by can be seen here. If you require any further assistance, please contact the team on 01482 38100. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
