Gay London London City Guide City Guides > United Kingdom > Gay London London Matt BramfordIntroducing London to a seasoned traveller is akin to introducing a single gay friend to Grindr. Its reputation precedes it. A cultural mecca, it is the birthplace of Keats, Woolf, Hitchcock, Bowie, McQueen and Beckham. Its skyline reads like an architectural tome; its restaurant scene represents every nook and cranny of the globe. What is left to write about a city like London that hasn’t been written before? A turbulent few years in the wake of political change has brought the best out in the city and her millions of residents. Yes, the UK’s capital has its problems, but its face is ever-changing. New LGBTQ spaces open often, to entertain and unite, while the city’s history remains as appealing as ever. London will welcome you into her ample bosom with open arms, always. Let Mr Hudson help you discover her best attractions with this London gay guide. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work.
