Hull's historic Old Town is officially a hipster hotspot.

TravelSupermarket has named the neighbourhood as one of the UK's top 10 coolest destinations.

Its Hip Hangout index collates the number of independent coffee shops, creative industries, vintage shops, vegan cafes, bike shops, art studios and co-working spaces. Areas with large numbers of chains were penalised.

Hull came in at number eight, above well-known creative hotspots such as Liverpool's Baltic Triangle, Manchester's Northern Quarter and Oxford's student district Jericho.

The only other Yorkshire neighbourhood in the top 20 was Bishopthorpe Road in York, locally known as Bishy, which has been named Britain's Best High Street in the past.
