King's Cross London

London Gay Areas

London divides North and South courtesy of the River Thames, with West and East London vaguely starting either side of the City of London – the original walled city.

LGBTQ+ areas are dotted across the city, with Soho and the West End of central London a long-held mecca, along with other outposts including Vauxhall, south of the river.

We have tried to group all of our listings into either Central, North, South, East and West, but we’ve played fast and loose with these, and you’ll have to forgive us if we have to bend the logic sometimes.

In terms of where gays live, it’s anyone’s guess! You could speculate that Vauxhall, Kennington and surrounds see a lot of queers make homes; but really we live everywhere, and listing a load of places (Clapham, Islington, Stoke Newington, Hampstead, Soho, Chiswick, Shoreditch, Earls Court, Peckham) is fun, but seems a bit pointless!
