About Gay London

London is home to the largest number of active Grindr users on the planet. That makes London – in numerical terms – the gayest city on the planet. There is more action to be had here, so to speak, than anywhere else if you’re LGBT+. You just booked your ticket, didn’t you?

Soho is the main gay district in London. It encompasses a sizeable part of central London between Covent Garden and Mayfair. Soho is packed with shops, fabulous restaurants and many gay bars and gay clubs. It has long been London’s pleasure district. Some of the gay bars in Soho are open during the day, while G-A-Y Late stays open well into the early hours. You can have a gay old time in Soho around the clock.

There’s also a sizeable gay scene in East London and it’s edgier than the gay scene Soho. You’ll see some of the best drag acts discover uber-trendy gay bars, like The Glory. Over in Vauxhall, you’ll find some of London’s most high octane gay club nights. Vauxhall is also home to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, London’s oldest gay bar.
