England always has been and always will be a gay vacation destination and offers a wide variety of options for gay tours in 2010. With a thriving, very visible gay and lesbian community and far more rights than those given to the LGBT community in the United States, England is an ideal location for gay vacations. From lively London nightspots to the relaxing beaches of Brighton and all the bucolic countryside and urban adventures that can be found throughout the country, England offers something for every kind of gay travel tourist.
Gay men and lesbians visiting London will certainly want to head to Old Compton Street and the Soho neighborhood where they will find a lively gay vacation and numerous gay clubs, bars, businesses and restaurants. Soho is the center of gay life in London and is in close proximity to some of Londons famous tourist attractions, such as Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Chelsea, Piccadilly Circus and Kensington. Also, London has a wonderful public transportation system, making all that London has to offer within reach. Further north, Manchester also offers a thriving gay culture with an exciting gay scene including many gay pubs, clubs and bars. Visitors will want to be sure to check out Canal Street in Manchesters gay village.
For seaside gay holidays, Brighton, aka Soho by the Sea, is home to the countrys second largest gay and lesbian community. Stroll along the pier, spend an afternoon on the famous pebble beach and explore the many unique boutiques and shops before heading to Kempton for dinner and a night on the town in this popular gay neighborhood in Brighton. Newcastle Gateshead is yet another gay-friendly option for a gay vacation in England and offers a bit of style and sophistication with a thriving gay scene complete with a gay village full of bars, clubs, cafs and pubs.
Lesbians and gay men will have no trouble finding gay-friendly accommodations throughout England, including options that cater exclusively to the gay travel community or solely to gay men. By working with a travel agency that regularly organizes gay vacations to England, you can be assured that your travel agent will be able to find the gay-friendly bed and breakfast, hotel or other accommodations that will best suit your needs. If your ideal gay vacation in England includes spending a few nights under the stars, there are even gay-friendly and gay-owned campsites in England, including the gay-owned Out in the Open campsite in Cornwall and Brighthouse Farm, located in Suffolk, which offers a six-acre campground, self-catering lodgings and a farmhouse bed and breakfast.
Make your England gay travel tours all that they can be by planning your gay travel with the assistance of a travel agency that is well-versed in organizing gay vacations.
