The Night Tube is Finally Coming to London!

Travel through London 24 hours a days on the night tube

Remember last year when all of London was promised a cheap, easy way of getting around London, 24 hours a day? We know, it seems like a distant memory, the day that the Night Tube was first promised to Londoners. Finally, however, we have good news. On the 19th August, the Night Tube will (hopefully) launch on the Central and Victoria Lines.

Scheduled to run every 10 minutes on Friday and Saturday nights, these two lines are the first of five to be rolled out over the autumn months. Supposedly, the Jubilee, Piccadilly and Northern lines will also follow suit with the entire TFL network running all night by 2021 although we won’t bother holding our breath waiting for it… For now though, it’s still important to check the website for details of which services are running, as not all of the lines are open in their entirety.

Good news however, the night fares will come to the same as any off-peak tube fare whilst travelcards will now be valid until 4:30 am the following morning. Say good bye to night buses and overpriced taxis, the future of London’s transport is here! Unless there’s another strike, that is…

What is it?: The opening of the Night Tube.
When is it?: 19th August, 2016.
Where is it?: The Central line stations between Ealing Broadway and Leytonstone and the Victoria Line.

Can’t get enough of the tube? Here are some great places to visit on your travels.
