Gay Brighton

As you already know, I love this fun and lively city in Southern England by the sea: I love it also because of its fun gay life. Yes, Gay Brighton is a place not to miss if you are interested in keeping all the points in your Gay Licence!

All of the life of Gay Brighton happens in the very center of the town: the gay scene is not hidden, but embraced and welcome in this little English Town. And there is fun for any tastes and at any time of the year or the week! Most of the bars are located on or around the so called Gay Brighton Village, in the area called Kemptown, comprised between St James Street on the North, and the Marina on the South.

These are the 5 top features you can’t miss in Gay Brighton according to Scruffy Gios!

Gay Brighton – Official Nudist Beach

Yes. Gay Brighton has an official naturist beach! Where is it? You don’t have to walk too much or look for some hidden hints to find it: the official Nudist Beach is right in front of the town, on the Marina, walking distance from the Pier. In Summer you can easily reach it by using the Volks Electric Railway from Brighton Pier: get off at the Black Rock station, and walk about 5 minutes (back towards Brighton) to find the nudist beach.

Gay Brighton: Anything You Want it To Be

Royal Pavilion - BrightonPeople come to Brighton for any number of reasons. The Prince of Wales (later to be Prince Regent and then George IV) came to Brighton to get away from his parents. He stayed on for many years. Today, visitors come to see his Royal Pavilion, the seaside palace that secured the city’s prestige. Others come for the sea, or for the famous pier.

Valerie Arkell-Smith (nee Barker), daughter of a much-respected British gentleman, came to Brighton dressed as a man. She caught a cab from Brighton railway station and headed for the Grand Hotel, where Valerie vanished forever and Colonel Victor Barker emerged.

And when the colonel married Elfrida Emma Haward at St Peter’s Church, Brighton, on November 14, 1923, the bride believed she was marrying the man of her dreams, or so she always claimed. Wherever the truth lies, Valerie/Victor remains Brighton’s most famous bridegroom.
