Due to the amazing response from LGBT tourists and London residents the LGBT Tourist information centre is moving to a new premises right in the heart of Soho.
The gay tourist office will now be situated on the corner of Frith Street and Old Compton Street, the epicentre of London’s gay scene. The LGBT tourist information centre has also taken on a new team of staff and volunteers who will provide help and advice for LGBT tourists and residents.
The new location, which looks over Old Compton Street, is also equiped with laptops giving LGBT tourists the opportunity to browse the web free of charge.
Adam Lake from the LGBT tourist information office said;
“Since the launch last autumn we have had a fantastic response from LGBT tourists and residents.
“Over recent months we have forged a great relationship with local businesses which has given us the opportunity to not only give out great advice but we can help people save a lot of money on theatre and club tickets as well as restaurants.”
LGBT tourist information organiser Michelle Cremona said:
“London has the biggest and best gay scene in the word and when LGBT tourists come to visit they can often be daunted by the vast choice that the gay scene offers. The LGBT tourist office provides local knowledge from people who know the scene.
The gay tourist office is situated above Ku Bar Frith Street and is a non profit making project funded by popular gay bar chain Ku Bar, one of Soho’s most popular bars. Ku bar owner Gary Henshaw said:
“Before we launched the gay tourist office we always had people come into our venues asking for advice on where they should go to make the most of their time in the city.
“I think it is an early testament to the LGBT tourist information office that we have decided to move to a more central location and I am looking forward to the centre building on its successes in the heart of London’s gay village.
“The support of volunteers and their local knowledge has been of such great value to LGBT tourists. We are always looking for people to get involved and if people would like to volunteer then we would be delighted to hear from them.”
