Tourist information service in Beverley to relocate to the Treasure House
Beverley TIC is relocating from Butcher Row to The Treasure House
By East Riding of Yorkshire Council | Posted: 15 Dec 2017
Beverley’s Tourist Information Centre (TIC) is on the move from its current location at 34 Butcher Row to the Treasure House in Champney Road.
The TIC will close on Saturday, 16 December and re-open in the New Year on the first floor of the Treasure House.
The new location will benefit from being in one of the town’s most recognisable cultural buildings.
The Treasure House is 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, which has played host to some memorable exhibitions as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 - including Wildlife Photographer of the Year and, most recently, ‘A Cultural Pilgrimage from Beverley to Hull’by Gary Saunt.
The Treasure House also includes additional facilities, such as a café and toilets.
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “This is a positive move for our tourist information services and secures their long-term future in the town.
“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.”
The new TIC will offer the same services as it did at Butcher Row and the move does not affect staffing levels.
