The Best Places for Gay Dating in the UK

Brighton – Often referred to as the ‘Gay Capital’ of the UK, Brighton has been embraced by boys who love boys and girls who love girls. The bohemian and laid back feel of Brighton paired its student population with a loud fashion sense and anything goes attitude has attracted a huge following of those that are looking for a gay dating scene where they can be themselves and let loose. Brighton sees the most gay civil partnerships in the UK as well as hosting the UK’s most popular Gay Pride Festival. While there is what is known as a ‘Gay Quarter’ in Brighton, the whole place is accepting of the gay population and everybody mixes in the same bars and clubs.

Newcastle – The gay capital of the north, Newcastle attracts almost a cult following of fellahs who flock to the ‘Pink Triangle’ looking for gay dating opportunities and fun. The Gay Village of Newcastle spans out from Central Station, down towards the Metro Radio Arena and clusters mostly around Times Square where the famous Powerhouse nightclub is. Newcastle’s pink triangle ticks all the boxes for gay dating opportunities with everything from thumping dance clubs to relaxed pubs and classy bars as well as sauna houses and BDSM clubs.

Manchester – Manchester has been a magnet for those looking for gay dating since the seventies, and before that, in a more underground way. Those looking to join in the gay nightlife that Manchester has to offer should head to Canal Street or ‘Anal Treet’ as it known locally in an affectionate way. People flock from all over the world to join in the gay life in Manchester’s Canal Street that was made famous by the TV sitcom ‘Queer as Folk’ which was filmed there.

Soho – Undeniably the UK’s most renowned area for gay nightlife and gay dating, Soho has been a mainstay in the gay scene in London since Victorian times and probably well before then too. Many bar in Soho have a strict door code of no groups of women and no heterosexual couples allowed. Dark alley ways and connotations with the sex trade give Soho an unwarranted seedy reputation. Gay life in Soho centres around Old Compton Street and Dean Street where ‘silly hours’ are the norm. Silly Hour is like a happy hour but with ridiculously low prices on drinks that helps the crowds get well on their way for a good night and paves the way for plenty of gay dating opportunities.

Most cities and larger towns in the UK have some sort of gay quarter or village but most have nothing on the places listed above. Heading out to a larger town usually means that there are more gay friendly places to drink and less discrimination. Also, the bigger the city, the more people there are there and the more chance you will have in the gay dating game.
