About London

London is home to the most active Grindr users on the planet, meaning that if you're looking for a genuinely gay city, you can't do much better. The action in London extends beyond the dating apps, with the city boasting world-class gay clubs, a treasure trove of cultural sights, and a historical theatre scene in the West End.

It's no secret that Soho is the main gay district in London, and this sizeable and central area of the capital is littered with fantastic gay clubs, bars, and gay-friendly hotels. While Soho is home to many of London's most beloved LGBTQ+ institutions, including G-A-Y @ Heaven, there are other hotspots of queer culture spread throughout the city - we love Vauxhall and Dalston for a shamelessly camp night out. 

The nightclubs and bars in the gay East London hotspots of Dalston and Haggerston are decidedly edgier than those in central Soho. It’s here that you’ll find iconic names such as Dalston Superstore. If you’re craving a less high-octane evening, be sure to visit the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, which wears the crown as London’s oldest gay bar. 

The scene in London is not just about partying; it's about community and culture as well. Many bars and clubs actively support LGBTQ+ rights and provide safe spaces for everyone to express themselves freely. Whether you're looking for a wild night out, a classy evening, or a community-focused experience, London's gay scene has something to offer.

London also has a series of events including Pride and Mighty Hoopla which is fast becoming one of the most popular of the summer.
