FAQ's ABOUT GAY FRIENDLY HOTELS IN LONDON

  • What are the most important holidays & closing days?
  • Similarly to the Gay Pride, London and Londoners have their own traditions that are celebrated during the most important holidays. One of the biggest holidays is May Day. May Day is the day of the maypoles, is one of the most important holidays in London, dating back to the 19th century. It is the only day of the year where the Mayor of London is not allowed to wear a hat. Other public holidays are New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Spring bank holiday, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day. Most of the shops, restaurants, and local attractions are closed on Boxing Day and Christmas Day. There will also be no public transport on Christmas Day.
  • What is the best time to travel to London?
  • London has different seasons than most cities, and the weather can be warm and sunny in July and August, yet damp and muddy in September and October. Well, for Gay friendly travelers, the weather is perfect from June to September, and most of the city’s famous attractions are open and welcoming to visitors.
  • What are the general opening and closing hours of shops/museums?
  • The stores/museums are open daily, opening and closing hours: Monday to Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 to 5:00 pm.
  • How far is the nearest airport from London?
  • London is an international hotspot, while the rest of the UK is relatively sleepy. So, the capital city is packed with airports, including Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Southend, and London City. With all of these airports, it will all just depend on where you are coming from. For example, if you are in central London, the nearest airport is the London City Airport that has a distance of 13 miles. From the airport, you can just take the London Underground and after 30 minutes, you will able to reach central London.
  • How do I get from the central train station to my hotel?
  • While there are many gay friendly accommodations in London, we personally recommend staying in the LGBT neighborhood of Camden, which has many gay friendly hotels. Once you book your stay at one of these, you can take a 20-minute walk to the city center, via the canal sidewalk and the Regents Canal, then take the train to the west end and your hotel.
  • Is it easy to find a parking spot in London?
  • In London, parking is an absolute nightmare, and finding a space is a real challenge. The streets are filled with drivers who are oblivious to the fact that other people have to park too. While it is true that London is a big city, everyone deserves a break from the stressful city life, and parking a car is no exception.
  • Is it easy to use public transport in London?
  • The ease of access to public transport is really one of the great features of living in London—with the right option of transport. You can easily get around the city in no time. London’s public transport system is as convenient as it is comprehensive, but there are some frustrating things about it. For instance, the cost of the Oyster cards—the electronic cards that provide you with a single journey—can be very expensive. Also, do not expect the Tube to run on time! There are many ways to try and reduce the time you spend on the Tube by not buying a too-expensive Oyster card, but we all know that it is very expensive to be on a train five minutes into your journey.
  • Is it easy to get a taxi in London?
  • London is a complex city with a varied population—one that has a very easy time getting a taxi. This is partly a result of the city’s intensely competitive taxi market. The city’s popularity determines the number of taxis available at any given time and how many drivers are willing to work. This is due to the fact that a significant amount of London’s population is from former Soviet countries. Many of these people are still relatively unfamiliar with the ways of life in the West and will often take whatever is available regardless of whether or not it is legal. If you are in the UK, you probably won’t have a problem getting a taxi in London.
  • What are the main attractions of London?
  • A major attraction of city living in London is the ease with which you can get around. You can stroll for hours and still not be more than a subway ride away from your destination. Alternatively, if you’re flying into London, you can walk to your hotel from the airport. Trains are another example. In a country where public transportation is a privilege, there are myriad options to get around the city. Since you are getting around the city, you can also visit The National Portrait Gallery, The London Eye, The London Dungeon, and The British Library. You can also visit other tourist attractions such as the Tate Modern, Churchill War Rooms, London Zoo, and British Film Institute. You might as well visit Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London for an unforgettable gay trip in London.
  • Which hotels are near the British Museum?
  • Some of the gay friendly hotels London near the museum are The Montague on The Gardens, The Bloomsbury, Thistle Holborn Hotel, and Kimpton Fitzroy London. You can also book your stay at Radisson Blu Edwardian London, Bloomsbury Street, Grange Beauchamp Hotel, and others near the main attraction.
