In this post we aim to help you discover the historical gay London.

So why not plot out a route through London’s historical spots? Be ready for many pub stops!
Heaven was London’s first large, out-and-proud gay club, opened in 1979. It’s camp, over-the-top and packed with people of all sorts (heterosexuals and tourists, alongside all your standard gay clientele), but remains a classic. Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Cher have all performed here, so you are guaranteed a thoroughly great time.
Heaven, Under the Arches, Villiers Street, London, WC2N 6NG
