With London’s Night Tube starting service this Friday, August 19, along the Central and Victoria lines and the Northern, Piccadilly, and Jubilee lines later this fall, it will be much easier to move about London at night. Here’s a list of the most unique adventures and best places to visit, all allowing you to take advantage of the Night Tube. Check out these suggestions we found on Funzing and The Telegraph.
VIP Pub Crawl: Put the most obvious first, right? Take a six-hour tour through the best bars London has to offer – getting a free shot and discounted drinks at each stop. The tour hits the neighborhoods of Covent Garden and Leicester Square, and ends the night at the famous Piccadilly Institute.
Exclusive End of Summer Party: Party from 8 P.M. to 3 A.M. at this exclusive summer’s-end birthday bash. Enjoy a complementary cocktail in the gardens, which will be followed by a BBQ. After 10 p.m., enter the club to dance to live DJ music through the end of the party.
Pokémon Go Nightwalk: Hit several of London’s landmarks at night (with a minimum-Level 25 trainer leading the way) for a chance at some rare Pokémon. Stops will include Golden Hinde, Winchester Palace, Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Millennial Bridge. The final stop will be St. Paul’s Cathedral, where trainers will have a Lure session.
“Tubeopoly”: Participants will receive instructions, clues, challenges, and a map: whoever wins will be crowned “master of the Tubiverse.” In addition to the honorary title, medals and other prizes will be awarded. Make sure a smartphone is on hand as it may be necessary to complete the tasks.
Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery: Another treasure hunt; this time guests will be helping Sherlock Holmes. Groups of participants will discover clues, solve riddles, work with Dr. Watson, and hopefully save the target before they’re assassinated. And whether or not the case is solved, enjoy some drinks after.
Visit the World’s Best Bar: Artesian, given the title for three-years’ running by The Telegraph, is located in the Langham Hotel in Oxford Circus. Usually uncommon ingredients such as such as mushroom, curry, and frankincense are common here.
