Services will run throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays, having been suspended back in March 2020 when the pandemic hit the UK.

As London has begun to emerge from the pandemic, off-peak leisure travel has been recovering more quickly than other types of journeys, indicating a strong demand for services that run later into the night – particularly at weekends.

The Central and Victoria lines were previously two of the busiest lines on the Night Tube network. Restoring these will support the city’s night-time economy by providing more accessible transport to and from London’s bars, clubs and restaurants, in addition to providing more transport options for night workers.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said:

“The reason why I was so keen to be the first Mayor in London's history to start the Night Tube in 2016 and to restart it now, after the Covid pause, is because I know how important this is to London's thriving night-time economy, to London's recovery and to the confidence and safety of everyone travelling home at night, particularly women and girls.

“That's why I'm delighted to see the return of the Victoria and Central Night Tube lines next month, which will make a huge difference to people travelling around our city at night and making their way home, offering them an additional safe, reliable transport option.

“I will continue to work with TfL and the government to do everything we can to bring back the full Night Tube network as soon as possible.”

Transport for London (TfL) aims to return the other Night Tube lines – the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines – to service as soon as is practical.

It’s currently dealing with resourcing issues on these lines, and also needs to consider the upcoming closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line, which will allow completion of the Bank tube station upgrade.

It also aims to resume the Night Overground service.
