The Curzon Rooms (or at least what was left of it) burnt down under suspicious circumstances. Police were unable to charge anyone with arson.
Planning permission was then granted to knock down the burnt out and derelict building and turn the site into a car park.
The car park is busy, but please do Pay & Display otherwise you will, as many of my friends have done – ended up with a Parking Fine from Napier Parking. Unlike Havant Borough Council Car Parks, fees are due 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
