Can be a very variable area. On a good evening esp during summer it can still have a good atmosphere, I would recommend eating/drinking at Velvet (surprisingly good food) and also Via Fossa which is usually a good venue and not plagued by hen & stag parties. Many bars are a let down, shabby and not trying and the area can be plagued by hen parties. Can be a great night out but it's always 50 / 50.

Every time I go to the gay village i have a really top, enjoyable night, lots of fun in Churchills with the cheesy music, dance the night away and have loads of fun with the drag queens. x

As usual. Great night and good food at Via. The whale and chips was perfect so was the friendly atmosphere wherever you went.

Straights, hen and stag parties. You'll love it if your on one. I used to go down here and enjoy a good night. Now very rare and it is quite sad.

The only physical area outside of Greenwich village in New York to actually contain a gay village. Started from humble beginnings ,but has just grown and grown both in size and reputation.These days popular with hen nights also
