Hull’s Old Town has been named as one of the top ten hippest destinations in the UK.

TravelSupermarket has named the historic area of our city has the eighth hippest neighbourhood in the UK for 2018, alongside Manchester’s Northern Quarter and Montpelier in Bristol.

Emma Grimster, a TravelSupermarket spokeswoman, said: “After scoring the UK and Europe to find the most up and coming, independent areas, we hope the guide gives people ideas for new destinations to visit, at home or abroad.

“Taking a city break towards the start of the year can, in most cases, be the cheapest time to travel while demand is low. Wrap up warm and enjoy exploring somewhere new.”

The Hip Hangout indexes compared the ratio of trend-setting and creative industry indicators such as independent coffee shops, vintage fashion stores, vinyl record shops, vegan cafes, independent bike shops, co-working spaces and art galleries/studios to the number of residents.

While penalty points were subtracted for areas that had high numbers of big chain brands, which would indicate that they had reached “Peak Hipster”.
