Holiday with Pride

Destination Weddings, Honeymoons, Escapes and Holidays

Here at Holiday with Pride we like to do things a little differently.

Unlike the High Street agencies who mostly sell their parent company’s products, or the faceless booking engines that can’t really answer your questions, our Travel Designers work with you every step of the way to create “ a world designed around you”.

We are specialists in LGBT+ travel.

Our expertise extends to tailormade holidays, cruises, winter holidays, weddings, honeymoons & familymoons around the world and with over 60 years combined experience in the industry we like to think we are rather good at it.

We are proud of having travelled to all six inhabited continents including over 90 countries, visiting most world cities & checking out what each country has to offer along the way. That’s a lot of travelling by air, ship, rail & even by road!

This personal experience means that our knowledge is quite unmatched and enables us to give you the right advice about places that you would like to visit & even maybe consider some you hadn’t thought of. This passion for travel sets us apart & guarantees that Holiday with Pride will go further for you, our customer, creating your holiday to uniquely fit you and giving exceptional value for money on all travel services we provide.

To quote Hans Christian Anderson:

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give.
To roam the roads of lands remote.
To Travel is to live.

Here at SeaCider, we believe Cider should come from whole apples.

Pressed the old school way and then fermented with some Yeast, Time and Patience. Our Apples are Hand-Picked, Hand-Sorted, Hand-Pressed and then the cider is Hand Packaged.

It’s this method that produces our great tasting, flavoursome Cider. We’re proud of what we’ve made and we’re proud to serve it to you.

We believe you all deserve a real pint of real Cider. So enjoy some good Cider with some good mates and some good music. Safe in the knowledge that we’ll be doing the same!

DIVA magazine was launched in 1994 and remains Europe’s biggest-selling lesbian magazine, offering readers 100 glossy pages of vital information: news, entertainment, travel, music, scene, real life features and listings.


Founded in 1984, Gay Times magazine is probably the longest established gay magazine in the world. We grew from a marriage of Him magazine and Gay News – which was the victim of the last successful blasphemy trial in the UK, in 1977.

We have grown enormously from our political and campaigning roots, keeping these integral, but growing into an exciting gay men’s lifestyle and current affairs magazine featuring style, interviews, comment, music and arts. The monthly mag is put together by a crack team in North London, UK. We are the world’s definitive gay magazine. Last year we had a bold redesign and re-brand and are moving through our third decade with a renewed sense of excitement.


Gaydio is the UK’s first FM gay radio station, and we are proud to have them as our Radio Sponsor for the Gay Wedding Shows.
