The former site of the British Consulate Office located in the Nanbin area of our city downtown is one of the precious buildings that record the urban development trajectory of Shantou since the opening of the port. It is also one of the only 10 former sites of British Consulate Office in China, covering a total area of 4,200 square meters. In April 2019, the renovation project of the former site of the British Consulate Office (main building renovation) was under construction, mainly for the restoration and renovation of 5 cultural relics, involving a total area of 1,100 square meters. The renovation content includes structural reinforcement, post-addition building demolition, indoor and outdoor restoration and decoration of buildings, outdoor drainage works, etc.

At present, the renovation project of the main buildings has been completed, and the follow-up renovation works and the exploit of historical and cultural resources are being implemented simultaneously. In the future, our city will combine the development goal of the Queshi Scenic Area to build a national 5A-level tourist attraction, fully exploit and display the history of Shantou's opening of the port behind the Consulate Office, and further enhance and optimize the cultural tourism value of the Queshi area.
