What to Do and Where to Eat this Week


Sumptuous seafood and awe-inspiring artists

Ask anyone on the street who the world’s greatest artist is and, more often than not, you’ll be met with one of two responses: da Vinci or Michelangelo. And while Mona Lisa isn’t making the trip to Yorkshire anytime soon, the same isn’t true for the Sistine Chapel masterpiece which, for the very first time, is being brilliantly displayed on canvas in the touring exhibition Michelangelo: A Different View, coming to Hull Minster on Tuesday. Hull is one of only two cities in the UK to host it too, so don’t go and miss it. 

Humber Fish co is a relaxed seafood restaurant showcasing maritime culture, even in its quirky décor – a wooden boat is suspended from the ceiling and the walls are adorned with seafaring memorabilia. Treat yourself to The Skippers Haul to share – a whole lobster, dressed brown crab, native mussels, shell-on prawns, gin-cured salmon, smoked mackerel pâté and roll mop herring.

North East: 
Murderous madmen, killer clowns and chainsaw-wielding characters all lurk in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of interactive scare experience Psycho Path, which opens this Friday at Lintz Hall Farm in Burnopfield. Offering some killer new attractions for 2019 in its revamped Fearground – which will offer everything from aerial artists, magicians and fire breathers to fairground rides and a range of street food and drinks – Psycho Path will also be hosting a Family Frightfest on certain dates this year too. Sweet, but psycho. 

One of the latest additions to the increasingly-popular North Shields Fish Quay, Dodgin’s Yard is shaking things up. A far cry from battered cod, chips and mushy peas, their menu is the epitome of a café, bar and grill. Think full English breakfasts or pancakes, and hearty lunches including steak ciabatta and plenty of burgers. Their real forté however, are their meat and fish boards, choose your meat, sides and sauces for the perfect dinner to share.
