5. Main Beach, Brighton, England
All major cities of the United Kingdom have beautiful gay villages. However, Brighton has long been considered the Gay Capital of the UK. Located on the south coast of England Brighton is a great seaside town and is home to the Lanes shopping area, the kooky Royal Pavilion and a vibrant nightlife – enjoyed by both visitors and a large LBGT community. It’s a main destination for stag and hen parties. Main Beach isn’t the most beautiful beach, but there’s a nudist area. Some of the other gay-friendly beaches of Brighton are West Beach, Duke’s Mound and Telscombe Cliffs.
