Data collected from a new dating app has shown that Vauxhall and Camden have topped the neighbourhoods as the most gay friendly in London.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Tab Dating revealed the areas in the capital where people get the most matches and which areas have the highest ‘like’ rate if you’re holding out for a date.
The two gay friendly neigbourhoods were revealed as Vauxhall and Camden which were closely followed by Dalston. Both Vauxhall, in south London and Camden, in north London have had a long history of serving the gay community with clubs and bars. In recent years the gay scene in Vauxhall and Camden have gone through a radical change, with numerous closures. Most recently The Black Cap in Camden was closed and last year the Royal Vauxhall Tavern had a much publicised battle to remain open.
