There's always something for everyone in the Gay Village. You can find somewhere quiet and peaceful as well as being at the centre of where it's happening. Always a great, friendly, fun, safe night out ...

Not for me but its a friendly colourful place with some nice bars and restaurants. Unfortunately when we were there the canal had been drained and it was smelly and full of rubbish.

Maybe because it was November, the Gay Village seemed pretty dead. At least during the day and afternoon, even evening. Many places closed. Nothing to see, really.
