Sheffield’s Kelham Island named in top ten coolest places in Britain

Sheffield’s Kelham Island has been named as one of the top ten coolest places in Britain. The former industrial area has been reinvented as one of the UK’s hippest areas – and its revival has earned it eighth spot in TravelSupermarket’s Hip Hangout Neighbourhood Index, which showcases the most up-and-coming neighbourhoods in the UK and Europe. Kelham Island has become a magnet as a hip hangout. Kelham Island beats two London hotspots and Manchester’s Northern Quarter in the rankings. The Index ranks the hippest areas to explore in the UK and Europe.

Taking first place on the UK list is Manchester’s Ancoats district, followed in second place by Leith in Edinburgh. Top of the European Index was Kreuzberg in Berlin, followed by Riga, Latvia in second, just pipping Ancoats into third place. Emma Coulthurst from TravelSupermarket says the aim of the Index is to inspire city breakers with ideas for new places to discover; “The Index will hopefully put Kelham Island even more on the map and encourage new and return visitors to the city”.
