Calling all hipsters! If you’re the type to spin some vintage vinyl rather than pop in the earpods, then here are some quirky alternatives to your better known Hull attractions…

Music

Jack Conman

By now you’ve probably heard about the most famous music to come from Hull (The Beautiful South, Everything But The Girl and the Housemartins being the big dogs), but what about the burgeoning bands of this musical city?

Jack Conman, Vulgarians, and Cheidu Oraka have all been tipped by BBC Music Intoducing as the ones to watch!

Sport

Rock City

If watching the tigers at that KC Stadium on a Saturday afternoon isn’t quite your bag, Rock City might be the one for you! Featuring one of the best climbing walls and indoor skateparks in the country, you can get involved in the extreme side of sport.

Food

Dope Burger

Dope Burger serve up some of the naughtiest burgers around, they’re packed with flavour, made with top quality meat and they’ve even opened up a brand new restaurant as well as their usual takeaway in the city centre. Plus if you’re a veggie, they even do a spot on falafel burger!

Art

Fisherman Mural

Hull has some wonderful free art galleries in the city centre, but there is just as much to see on the brickwork and buildings of nearby streets in the form of underground graffiti and specially commissioned pieces. So get out there and look up!

Venues & Nightlife

Adelphi CLub

The Adelphi is one of Hull’s most historically rich music venues, with previous acts like Radiohead, Pulp and Oasis all making an appearance when they were starting out. An aspect which has been key to the ethos and spirit of this tiny and much loved venue.

Shopping

Trinity Market

Recently redeveloped and playing host to local, independent retailers, Trinity market is now one of Hull’s most interesting places to pick something up. From retro records to specialty tea bags, it certainly beats your typical trip to Tesco!
