The little purple and yellow place nestled next to the bridge on Newland Avenue is Lydia’s, a cake shop where customers can buy a sweet treat and relax.

With the regeneration of the Fruit Market and Humber Street not quite finished, there are many people in Hull who might not yet know about Nibble. As soon as the area is fully open for business again, which should only be a matter of weeks, I imagine that this small yet perfectly formed eatery will become even more popular.

It’s hard to believe that any adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book can beat the cartoon version from the 1960s, with its swinging tunes and groove-dancing animals. However, this year’s movie release, also by Disney, is in my opinion even more gripping, heartfelt and satisfying.

I was taken as a plus-one to see a musical with a friend. Excited by the fact that I had not been to a show in forever, I could not wait to find out what it was all about. I also did not look into what I was going to see, wanting to leave it all a surprise, which could have gone very badly; thankfully, it didn’t.

CoCo Couture Nail and Beauty Bar is a relatively new arrival on Newland Avenue. The salon was opened in May 2015 by 24-year-old Shanice Bulman, when she could no longer keep up with the demand for the unique bedazzled creations she created in her East Hull living room.

In the mood for home cooked food with a continental twist, we recently visited The Brief for a satisfying lunch. This small and inviting cafe bar is situated along the quiet cobbles of Manor Street, which turns off Alfred Gelder Street and merges into The Land of Green Ginger (home to the smallest window in England). A family-run business hidden in plain sight, The Brief is a fantastic pla...
