Cities all over the world are reopening after the pandemic. Time Out’s annual ranking of the coolest city neighbourhoods has been revealed.

The old trade port was also lauded for its festivals, “local identity” and food scene, with The Pitt, the weekly street food market.

At number 13, London’s Dalston made an entry.

The East London neighbourhood had “everything we want”, Time Out said.

From great pubs to green spaces, Dalston also had a “moral compass”, making the best, and coolest, neighbourhood in London.


Ancoats in Manchester made the list at number 20.

Described as “so damn magical”, Ancoats’ blending of old and new was singled out as an attractive feature.

Food, community spirit and local charities, as well as cultural events made Ancoats one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world.

At 26, Kemptown in Brighton had a “free spirit”, Time Out said.

Beach regeneration, beautiful architecture and great nightlife were more than enough for Kempton to claim a spot on the list.
