Gay London Attractions

Palaces, art galleries, museums, street markets, parks, national monuments... London has it all!

London is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and for a good reason. There is a huge amount to see and experience. Here are just a few of the highlights we think you should try to squeeze into a trip to London:

Buckingham Palace


A working palace that is home to the British Royal Family. The Family move to Scotland during summer and the most of the Palace is open to the public including the impressive State Rooms. Buy tickets in advance online. Watch the changing of the Guards outside the Palace everyday at 11:30am.

Houses of Parliament (Big Ben), Downing Street, Westminster Abbey


Iconic buildings in Whitehall include the Palace of Westminster / Big Ben (Houses of Parliament), Westminster Abbey, HM Treasury, The Prime Minister Office at 10 Dowing Street, Horse Guards and many other state buildings. All located just a short walk from Trafalgar Square. Best photos are taken from Westminster Bridge.

 

London Eye

 

This 135-meter-tall observation wheel offers stunning 'birds eye' views of London. A fabulous 40-minute experience.

 

The Shard


Want to go even higher? Europe's tallest building, The Shard, has two viewing platforms on floors 69 and 69 offering spectacular 360 degree views of the city. Advance ticket purchase essential during high season.

 

Sky Garden

 

The Sky Garden is just across the River Thames from The Shard, at the top of a skyscraper known locally as the "Walkie Talkie" (due to its distinctive shape). Free entrance, but book online before visiting.

Several hundred years ago, this was the place disloyal Queens had their heads chopped off! This UNESCO World Heritage castle is now London’s oldest complete building (dating from 1101).

Trafalgar Square, Nelsons Column, Whitehall and Parliament Square

 

Trafalgar Square is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. From the Square, walk through Whitehall to past Downing Street and on to Parliament Square and Big Ben. Visit the massive Westminster Abbey where William and Kate were married in 2011.

 

London's Street Markets

 

Visit some of London's famous street markets, including Portobello Road Market, Camden Market, Brick Lane Market and Old Spitalfields Market. Our favorite is Borough Market, located next to London Bridge Station - excellent for lunch (Monday to Saturday).

The only full-time professional LGBT theatre company in the UK. This award-winning theatre focuses on LGBT-themed shows, including some original productions.

The venue is relatively small, so shows are often sold out weeks in advance - performance schedules and ticket purchase are available on their website.

The theatre has a fully stocked bar that is open one hour before/after the shows and during intervals. You can take drinks into the theatre.

We are big fans of Above The Stag and highly recommend it as an great alternative gay night out.
