Toilets in Hull's Queen Victoria Square to finally reopen after weather delays

The public toilets in Queen Victoria Square will reopen this weekend after water leaked into the electrical system resulting in a lengthy closure.

The Hull city centre facilities have been shut since the end of 2023 and needed essential repair work due to the issue. Hull City Council says contractor KWL has been "working incredibly hard to re-open the facilities as soon as possible" but the very wet winter resulted in delays.

However, the recent dry conditions gave an opportunity to continue the works which have now been completed, with the toilets set to reopen to the public on Saturday (June 1). As well as repairing the electrical system, the facilities have also received a deep clean ahead of their reopening.


Councillor Jack Haines, Portfolio Holder for Communities at Hull City Council, said: “We understand how important these facilities are, but we had to make sure that the toilets were safe before reopening to the public.

“Following the completion of the essential repair work, we’re delighted that the facilities can open again. These facilities are essential and play a crucial role in ensuring the comfort and convenience of our residents and visitors alike.

“We appreciate everyone's patience during the repair period and look forward to welcoming everyone back.”
