If you're in Scotland over Pride season, be sure to consider Glasgow City apartments as your base

Pride in London returned last weekend in absolutely fabulous style, and we’ve just about recovered from the festivities.

Now, we can’t wait for the UK’s other blockbuster LGBTI fests coming up this summer – but we’re already dreading the mornings after!

Brighton, Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester (to name but a few) all have their Pride celebrations fast approaching, and if you’re attending any/all of them, you’re no doubt questioning whether to nurse your hangover by making a long weekend of it.

If you fancy sticking around, check out this handy guide from mini-break experts Hoseasons on the country’s best post-Pride boltholes…
