Britain’s dullest man declares Car Park of the Year is at the University of Warwick

The University of Warwick has been awarded the accolade of 'Car Park of the Year' by none other than Britain's (self-appointed) dullest man, Kevin Beresford.

Its Kirby Corner, University House Car Park has ditched pillars and embraced wide parking bays to enhance the parking experience. With 1300 spaces over five floors, solar panels generate 10% of its energy, helping to charge a row of electric car charging points. Outside, you’ll find designated areas for car-sharers surrounded by greenery and hedgerows.

Kevin Beresford, an expert in all things mundane, has given Kirby Corner car park the seal of approval saying: “From the very first viewing of the Kirby Corner car park, the initial impression was, what a sleek building it is, with its clean-looking lines.

“The building gets better as you enter. A very up-to-date construction at the zenith of car park design.”

A University of Warwick spokesperson said: “On behalf of the University of Warwick, I am thrilled to express our heartfelt gratitude for the honour of being awarded ‘Car Park of the Year’ for our Kirby Corner, University House car park. This recognition marks our commitment to sustainability, convenience, and aesthetics. We thank you for this prestigious acknowledgement.”
