The rankings are based on how many 'Hip Hang Outs', independent coffee and bike shops and vagan cafes are in the area.

TravelSupermarket has revealed its annual ‘Hip Hangout Guide’, using research to rank the UK and Europe’s most hip destinations – and Romsey is at number 14 in the UK.

The Cambridge area, which includes Mill Road, beat neighbourhoods in London and Manchester. Bristol’s Montpelier was named the UK’s coolest destination, while Zurich’s Langstrasse was crowned Europe’s hippest place to visit.
