Royal Vauxhall Tavern Becomes England's First LGBT Historic Site

OutTraveler, Nov 18

The Victorian-era building is South London's oldest gay bar. The RVT was built in 1863 at Spring Gardens, Kennington Lane, on land which was originally part of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. It started life as a Victorian music hall. After the Second World War, returning servicemen and local gay men were attracted to the venue, which held shows by female impersonators (drag shows).
