With the Night Tube in full swing across the Central, Victoria and Jubilee Lines, it’s now a lot easier to make the most of 24-hour London.
Night Tube: The facts
Coming to life every Friday and Saturday, charges on London’s Night Tube are the standard off-peak fares, and the usual daily capping still applies.
Here’s what else you need to know:
- Victoria Line trains run every 10 minutes across the whole line.
- Central Line trains run every 10 minutes between White City and Leytonstone, and every 20 minutes between Ealing Broadway to White City and Leytonstone to Loughton / Hainault.
- Jubilee Line trains run every 10 minutes across the whole line.
The next Londoners to benefit from the Night Tube will be those living along the Northern and Piccadilly Lines, with services set to start before the end of the year.
