Sunday is International Men’s Day. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite ways to celebrate.

From gentlemen’s dining to sampling the latest gadgets and even flexing those manly muscles, there are so many ways you can get your testosterone flowing on International Men’s Day.

Now, we’re not saying that doing any of these things will make you more of a man, but they could certainly put hairs on your chest – if that’s what you’re into, of course.

It’s also good to note that all of the amazing activities listed below can be enjoyed by any gender.

Grab some grub at The Dancing Goat

Tuck into Afternoon Tea with a masculine twist at The Dancing Goat Coffee House. Choose from a selection of tasty pork pies, cheese and biscuits, grips, chutney and grapes and finish it off with some fruitcake. And of course, a pot of tea or coffee.

Heat things up at Cocoa Chocolatier and Bakery

Take on some of the tongue-tingling chilli chocolates from Cocoa Chocolatier and Bakery on Humber Street. The delicious indulgent bites strike the right balance between sweet and spicy. Cool down afterwards with a scoop of their handcrafted ice cream.

Embark on the Hull Real Ale Trail

If traditional booze is your thing, you’re in the right place. Hull’s Real Ale Trail is famous for its rich-flavoured beverages and mouthwatering pints. You can also see England’s smallest window along the way, as well as encounter some spooky spirits – if you’re brave enough.

Get a snazzy trim at Mousey Brown’s

Priding themselves on individuality and style, Mousey Brown’s Salon on Humber Street is the ideal spot for a gentlemen’s pamper. Get your beard trimmed or opt for a brand new style.

Treat yourself at Cock of the Walk

Cock of the Walk is a bespoke tailor, specialising in men’s suits and garments. Stand out from the crowd in a unique ensemble that allows your distinctive personality to shine through.

Geek out at RED5

With origins in Hull, RED5 is a haven for those who love trying out new gadgets and technologies. Here you can get your paws on remote control drones, robotic fish and virtual reality headsets.

Be amazed at the Streetlife Museum of Transport

Vehicle enthusiasts will wander around the Streetlife Museum of Transport in awe as they take in the sights, sounds and smells of Great British locomotives, motors and classic bicycles. Free to enter, this is the perfect destination for petrol heads.

Help another guy out with Men in Sheds

There’s nothing more chivalrous than helping out your fellow chap. Men in Sheds is a project that supports older men who want to get together, socialise and share and learn new skills. You can get involved and donate to their cause via their website.

Relax and re-energise at Urban Angels

Urban Angels in Brough offers a wide range of grooming and treatment packages, including men’s facials, massages and waxing. Their Tres Homme Catio facial is an electrical process that helps to cleanse and hydrate your skin, whilst a Deep Tissue Massage will see you well after a hard day’s graft.

Work out at Calisthenics Parks

Transform into Tarzan at Calisthenics Parks, Hull. A workout with a difference, the gym reuses wood from fallen trees to create beautiful exercise equipment. Swing, run, jump and climb your way to peak fitness. You can even bring kids over the age of 9 along, so it’s great for sports-loving dads.

International Men’s Day is all about raising awareness of men’s health, gender equality and celebrating the achievements of men and boys. However you honour it, be sure to have fun and stay true to what makes you feel fantastic as a bloke.
