Highlights of the LGBT London Tour

These are some of the most popular sights you can see during your tour:

Oscar Wilde’s house

See the Chelsea home of one of the most powerful and influential writers ever to have lived in the capital. Wilde led a hard life and was imprisoned for his homosexuality. Learn more about his story, and how his thoughts and influence live on through his rich literature.

Alan Turing’s house

Turing was an incredible computer scientist, but in 1952, he was prosecuted for homosexual acts. There is now a law named after him that retroactively pardons anyone cautioned or convicted according to historical legislation that made homosexuality illegal.

Lambeth Palace

This was home to Mary Benson, wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury. She had numerous relationships with women whilst married, and after her husband’s death. She was a brave, intelligent and insightful lady, and the notoriously stiff Victorian society she lived in turned a blind eye!

Soho

One of the most vibrant parts of London, Soho is known for its nightlife. It is teeming with gay and lesbian bars, ranging from classy cocktail spots to cabaret venues. It is a great place to stop off for some lunch – the foodie scene is big here and the narrow streets are lined with restaurants.

Bloomsbury

This was the haunt of the famous Bloomsbury Group, a collection of artists and writers that famously included Virginia Woolf. They had close friendships, and often same-sex relationships, with each other. They were widely known for their forward-thinking beliefs and ways of life.
