Finding Brighton’s Gay Beach – The Globetrotter Guys

Finding Brighton's Gay Beach - The Globetrotter Guys

Brighton is one of the most popular LGBTQ+ beach destinations in the UK with its open and welcoming atmosphere, plenty of bars, clubs and exciting activities to do – it also holds one of the biggest and best Pride celebrations in the UK.

How to Find Brighton’s Gay Beach

With all that going on, it is fair to ask ‘is there a gay beach in Brighton?‘… Yes, like many popular queer destinations, there is an unofficial gay beach in Brighton.

We say ‘unofficial’ as technically this is the official naturist beach and it therefore comes as no surprise that has become Brighton’s gay beach. When we visited it was a quiet day but it was still clear to us that this place attracted other gay travellers.

3 Days in the Lesbian Lake District – Our Taste for Life

3 Days in the Lesbian Lake District - Our Taste for Life

The Best Lesbian Lake District Itinerary
– 3 Days of Adventure!

3 days in the lesbian Lake District might not seem like a lot of time. But if you plan that time wisely, you can still achieve a lot during your trip. In this guide, I share our own tried & tested Lake District itinerary, including things to do, where to eat, and the best places to stay!

Our recent trip to the Lake District was our first time visiting. It was somewhere that had always been on our radar, but we’d never made it a priority. To be honest, we didn’t realise quite how magnificent it is.

The lakes have everything that we love about a place. Idyllic lakes, quaint countryside villages, and adventurous hikes up into the mountains.

This 3 day Lake District itinerary combines a bit of all those things. It’s ideal for couples, solo travellers, first-time visitors, and anybody else who wants to spend a long weekend in the Lake District.

Visiting Gay London

Gay London. The greatest city in the world. One of the most exciting places to live in with THE best gay scene you’ll ever come across. FACT! Of course, we’re totally biased! London was our home for decades and the place where we met – back in February 2009 in the bar in Soho…

But setting aside our biases, this is truly a terrific city. It’s so eclectic, home to many different people from everywhere in the world. There is always something to do here at any time of the day. The museums are grand, iconic, and are nearly all free to enter. All of the world’s best musicals feature on the West End and cost a fraction of the price of a show on Broadway.

And then there’s the gay scene. It’s massive! Yes, we see more and more businesses close shop due to gentrification, but the city still retains its pink shine, with an abundance of queer hangouts spread out all over this mega city.

The 25 Boutique Bed & Breakfast – Torquay Gay B&B

The 25 Boutique Bed & Breakfast - Torquay Gay B&B

Torquay Gay B&B – Officially the Best B&B in the World!

The 25 Boutique B&B was created from scratch by hands-on owners Andy & Julian Banner-Price in 2015. They literally went back to the brick and now have a fabulous bed and breakfast in Devon on the south west coastline of England with five individually designed boutique bedrooms.

Each room at this Torquay gay B&B, whilst very different in design and layout, comes with an array of luxury features and extras like Elemis toiletries, a large comfy bed, Nespresso coffee maker, bathroom TV, Smart room controls via Alexa, daily home baked treats, fluffy robes and slippers, air conditioning and many more.

As a gay couple, Andy & Julian know how difficult it can be to find somewhere you feel comfortable and relaxed. Whilst the majority of their guests are straight, many are regular guests and it’s a friendly atmosphere. You’ll be greeted on arrival by Andy and Julian who have no staff and do everything themselves and be offered a welcome drink along with Andy’s famous chocolate brownies. As the English Riviera is famed for its temperate climate, you’ll hopefully be able to enjoy these on the sun terrace, but if not there’s a drawing room for guest use too which also houses the honesty bar.

Bedruthan Steps Camping in Cornwall – Our Taste for Life

Bedruthan Steps Camping - Our Taste for Life

If you’re thinking about Bedruthan Steps Camping in Cornwall, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about camping at Bedruthan Steps, whether you have a tent, a campervan, or a caravan.

Bedruthan Steps Camping is Gorgeous

Carnewas at Bedruthan Steps is one of the most picturesque coastlines in all of Cornwall.

Cinematic cliffs tower over jagged sea stacks, while the magnificent Atlantic ocean stretches as far as the eye can see.

We only planned a brief stop-off here during our Cornwall road trip. But the views were so incredible that we decided to stay close by to enjoy them some more.

We found that the choices for camping near Bedruthan Steps are pretty limited. However, we did find a couple of campsites in the nearby area, as well as a few options for wild campers.

I’ll be covering it all in the blog post, alongside all the best things to see and do in the area.

Lesbian Durdle Door, UK – Our Taste for Life

Lesbian Durdle Door, UK - Our Taste for Life

There are many things to do near Durdle Door other than the famous limestone arch, and that’s what I’ll be covering in this blog post. By the end, you’ll have a jam-packed itinerary, whether you’re visiting the Jurassic Coast for a day, a weekend, or even a week.

Durdle Door is one of the most beautiful and iconic spots in all of the UK. A natural limestone arch formed over 10,000 years ago stood perfectly in pristine waters; it’s truly a sight to behold.

It’s no surprise that hundreds of thousands of visitors travel from far and wide to catch a glimpse of the famous archway every year. However, many don’t realise that Durdle Door is just a tiny part of the colossal Jurassic Coast.

Stretching for 95 miles along the South of England, the Jurassic Coast is the UK’s first natural world heritage site. It’s famous for its diverse, rugged coastline and outstanding geology, revealing over 185 million years of Earth’s history.

While there’s no denying that the lesbian Durdle Door area is an unmissable experience, here I’m going to be sharing some other lesser-known sights that are equally worthy of a visit. So whether you’re camping near Durdle Door or staying somewhere else nearby, be sure to save this article for your trip.

Gay Manchester – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Manchester - The Nomadic Boys

My coming out story started out in the late 1990s when the British Queer as Folk version first aired on our screens. Back then, a confused and extremely repressed young teenage Stefan watched in awe as 3 gay blokes, Stuart, Vince and Nathan, went about their daily lives in Manchester’s Canal Street Gay Village. 

I was flabbergasted! Stunned!

This was the first time I had ever seen “normal” gay guys popularised on screen. It was also the first time I had ever seen gay urban life dramatised in such a way that it felt so real! Finally, that “feeling” that up until this point I had been forced to suppress by the society around me was, in fact, something totally natural. What a relief! I wasn’t ill or abnormal. I was in fact part of a large LGBTQ family that also felt the same way. As that young teenage Stefan continued to watch Queer As Folk, he also dreamed: maybe, just maybe, I could grow up and be just like Stuart, Vince and Nathan living so freely in the gay streets of Manchester…

Gay Manchester

Fast forward a few decades and I’m galavanting down those same historic gay streets, with Seby to hand, together exploring one of the coolest and most progressive places in Europe. 

I will always love Manchester! 

As well as having a special place in my big gay heart, it has an exciting gay scene, one of the best gay Pride events in the UK and is one of the few places in the world where I feel comfortable walking the streets holding hands with my Seby. It’s also super close to London (just 2 hours by train), which makes it ideal for a weekend trip.

Manchester Gay Bars – The Globetrotter Guys

Manchester Gay Bars - The Globetrotter Guys

Before leaving the UK we lived in Manchester, the gay capital of the North, for 10 years and absolutely loved this city we came to call home.

Manchester has been named amongst the Top 10 most exciting cities in the world, according to a recent poll by Time Out and is an incredibly gay friendly city.

Manchester has been one of the top gay destinations in the UK for a long time. It has one of the UK’s largest gay prides and one of the best gay scenes (Canal Street).

Here is our mini guide to the best gay bars in Manchester (and gay clubs).

The Gay Village Manchester

One of the things we love the most about Manchester and why it is one of the best gay cities in the UK is Manchester’s Gay Village.

Manchesters Gay Village is made up of Canal Street and a few surrounding streets. This is in the very centre of the city, minutes away from the main train station (Manchester Piccadilly).

Canal Street is full of gay bars from the start to the very end of the street.

We love the fact that everything is so close together and that you can easily do a bar crawl and not have to travel or get taxis between bars like you need to in some other cities.

Read on for the best gay bars in Manchester:

G-A-Y Manchester

Every time we have been to G-A-Y we have had the best night. The music varies on each floor but you can always guarantee the best of pop, 90’s and current chart toppers will be played somewhere (which we love).

Drinks are reasonably priced here too and the crowd is typically quite young and trendy.
