Further Afield was born out of the desire to create a collection of places to stay where every traveller was welcome regardless of their gender identity .

The collection has broadened over the years but at its root remains a commitment to providing the gay traveller with details on gay friendly hotels and accommodation, plus some other really useful stuff, like:

  • guides to gay friendly cities and other destinations
  • in our Wedding and celebrations collection are venues for gay weddings and other events which you can be assured will welcome you and your friends with the same warm welcome they show everyone
  • our blog has plenty of stories and posts about the experiences of other gay (and straight) travellers, giving you an extra insight into the places they have visited

So, wherever you decide to travel to with Further Afield you can be sure of a truly inclusive welcome – all you need to worry about is how to get there and what to pack!
