Home to Europe's largest gay and lesbian population, London remains a hot spot for the discerning international gay traveller. And with more than 300 languages spoken (though you'll need just the one) and nearly a third of the population born outside of the country, you don't get much more international.

The capital of United Kingdom is famed for its diverse populations and welcoming attitude, and that’s why for many people there’s just no place like London. Soho and Vauxhall are the main areas for drinking and clubbing in London, although as a major tourist destination you'll feel comfortable and welcome wherever you go.
