Guys on the Beach

Lesbian, Gay, Bi & Trans (LGBT+) life in Bournemouth is centred around 'The Triangle', an area just 5 minutes walk from the town centre. Here you'll find the majority of the gay bars and clubs. Bournemouth is also home to the Saunabar, the busiest gay mens leisure complex on the South coast.

The heart of the local gay community is the Easy Tiger store, here you can get advice and local information.

Many of the gay and gay friendly hotels are within walking distance of The Triangle but there are many more across Bournemouth too.
