Visit the vibrant LGBT+ scene and sights of historical influence. From Knightsbridge to Hampstead and everywhere in between!
London is rightly famous for its rich diversity, inclusivity and acceptance.
The vibrant places frequented by the LGBT+ community offer some of the best days and evenings out in London. London's art and performing arts from classical to modern, from theatres to galleries owe a tremendous debt to this community. I can point out the best places to enjoy great food, drink and entertainment where you can relax. Alongside, I can share a fascinating and relevant history timeline starting all the way back from the terrible persecution during Tudor times. We will visit homes of influential characters including Henry VIII, Mary Benson, Oscar Wilde, Laurence of Arabia, Virginia Woolf, Alan Turing and George Michael.
The tour will cover a vast area and show-case London's most cosmopolitan and fashionable locations.
Along the way, we will see most of London's traditional sights as well!
We will meet at your hotel, or any other arranged location in London.
During the tour we will visit:
- Trafalgar Square
- Maida Vale
- Hampstead Heath
It will include all the relevant areas and sights for LGBT+ and any traditional sights along the way in those areas. There will be regular opportunities to stop, walk around, discuss and photograph. A detailed commentary will be provided. The tour can be customised to include more or less to suit your preference, and can include some interesting refreshment stops. I can recommend great places for this.
At the end, we will return back to your hotel, or another agreed upon location
