Restaurant | "A little bit of France in Hull"

So, England really is not famous for its haute cuisine but luckily the French are. And even better for us, a lovely little French eatery has opened its doors on Newland Avenue and is now spoiling the local Hull residents with delicious crepes, hearty stews and a great atmosphere.Le Crepier Papin is a rather small place located on the bottom of Newland Avenue in the heart of Hulls student area. Often overlooked from the outside it is well worth a visit but be sure to book a table for those busy weekend nights. The small eatery has a lovely charm about it and the atmosphere is relaxed yet sombre enough to make it perfect for a romantic dinner. What I love is the lack of loud, obnoxious music...Read More

Restaurant | "Great food but shame about the staff"

Newland Avenue in the heart of Hulls student area has quickly turned into the social hub of my life. It is not surprising that ever new place that opens up has to be promptly inspected. Especially if a place advertises that they have a selection of over 40 different types of rum on sale it is a must-try for me and my friends. Roots is a Caribbean Bar and Grill offering a large selection of drinks and West Indian dishes. Over the last few months we have been there a number of times for both drinks and food, sometimes as a group of people and sometimes just for a spontaneous cocktail after lectures. As a result we have made our way through most of the food menu and I can say not without pride that betwe...Read More

Hull Fish Trail

Attraction | "Something fishy going on in Hull"

When you ask anyone in the UK what Hull is famous for most people either won't know where Hull is or tell you to stay well away from there. Obviously people from Hull see that a bit differently and pride themselves in their little city at the Humber. Over the last couple of years I've come to love Hull for its little quirkiness like the white phone booths, the good night life and of course the Deep. However, the one thing every proud Hullonian needs to have done in their lives is the fish trail! Fish trail I hear you ask, what is that? No, it is not a tour of a smelly fish factory nor a fish&chips shop crawl. It is indeed a walking route through old town and the marina area hunting down the shapes...Read More

Hull is one of those cities where you will have to venture further than just the city centre to get the real spirit of the place. While Newland Avenue is the perfect place for vintage shopping and tasty take-aways Princes Avenue is certainly the place to see and to be seen. Halfway between the university and the city centre this area attracts a diverse crowd of people looking for a posh night out and exotic food. Prinny Ave as the locals lovingly call it is my primary port of call when looking for a nicer night out than your typical student night. With a wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafes there is something for everyone.The one place that I have been eying up without ever going to...Read More

Restaurant | "My (not so secret) hot choc addiction"

Newland Avenue in Kingston-upon-Hull is in the heart of the student area that occupies everything from Beverley road towards Cottingham. Most private student houses are located here and as a student you really have no need to venture out any further that 1km from your house to satisfy any of your shopping, nightlife and culinary needs. Oh, and of course the actual University is not too far away as well. Most people coming to Hull seem to be somehow connected to the University or use the city as a starting point for a P&O cruise. Despite its bad reputation Hull is actually a lovely city offering visitors a wide variety of attractions and an exceptional nightlife.For anyone venturing out...Read More
