Your travel itinerary could look like...

Day 1

A white book with a rainbow coloured book mark poking out

AM – Arrival 

On arrival in London, head to your accommodation and drop your bags before heading into the city to enjoy your first meal to get energised and you can start with some off the beaten track places.

Support an independent LGBTQIA+ book shop by finding your next page-turner at Gay’s The Word. Having opened in 1979, it’s the UK’s oldest LGBTQIA+ bookshop. It’s just a short walk from the University of London and Russell Square underground station.

From there just a 10-minute walk away, culture vultures can visit the British Museum for a bookable 70-minute LGBTQIA+ tour, highlighting fascinating histories surrounding desire, love and identity.

PM – City late night walking tour

Kick off a night on the town in style with a unique strut round the city’s iconic sights bursting with lip syncs and karaoke, follow the high-heeled footsteps of drag queen’s as they lead you on a Dragged Around London tour. Tours are public or you can create your own.

Day 2

Looking up at Pride flags in a London street on a sunny day

AM – Queer Britain museum 

After an early breakfast it’s time to head to the UK’s first museum dedicated to the LGBTQ community. Queer Britain is a museum of British LGBTQ history and culture located in Kings Cross. Its inaugural exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the UK’s first Pride March.

For lunch there are plenty of fantastic restaurants in the Soho area, Milk Beach Soho has an amazing cocktail and mocktail range as well as a unique menu of Australian classics. You could also try the Seven Dials Market where street food reigns supreme.

For the afternoon a walking tour of Soho, Stop 16. On this walk we visit those hidden and sometimes forgotten places that have kept Soho Queer, from the late Victorian era to the present day.

Delving way back in time now, your trip simply wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the iconic Tower of London. This 900-year-old (!) castle is an appropriate finish to your whistle-stop tour of England’s capital… and what an amazing couple of days it’s been!
