The best LGBTQ+ holiday destinations named

An “iconic” city has been crowned the best destination in the world for British LGBTQ+ tourists.

The expert travel team at Planet Cruise ranked destinations based on whether marriage and adoption was legal for same-sex couples and the number of LGBTQ+ bars.

Although Malta has previously been named the safest destination for LGBTQ+ travellers, it didn’t make this ranking.

Dave Mills, Planet Cruise’s Global Supply Director, said: “Feeling safe and relaxed on your holiday is at the forefront when choosing a location, and we understand it can be an even bigger concern for those of the LGBTQ+ community.

“We hope that with this in-depth look into the best LGBTQ+ locations, people within the community can find the perfect holiday location for them, their partners, and friends. and family.”
