The Night Tube is extending its reach again tonight


The Night Tube is extending its reach again tonight
23 February 2018

The Night Tube has revolutionised the precise art of getting home after a large one in London, saving us from the night bus (and inevitably ending up in either Trafalgar Square five times in a row, or Friern Barnet at 5am) and dodgy minicabs.

Despite the difficulties of keeping the service running 24 hours a day at weekends - given the antiquated nature of the Underground’s design - and the difficulties of getting staff on board with it (leading to a series of strikes), it finally became a reality back in August 2016 when it began on the Central and Victoria lines. The Jubilee line was added in October that year, the Northern line in November and the Piccadilly line in December.

The Overground between Dalston Junction and New Cross Gate was added in December 2017 and now more exciting news, as the Overground coverage is being extended from Dalston Junction to Highbury & Islington as of tonight (Friday 23 February).

While this may only be the addition of two stations - Highbury & Islington and Canonbury - crucially this now connects the Overground to the Victoria line at Highbury & Islington.

This all adds up to a Night Tube that has a seriously impressive coverage of London, though if you live in Amersham or Upminster then sorry guys, you’ll just have to walk it like normal.

The new, full map is below and you can read full info from TfL right here.
