Life is about to get a lot easier on September 12 (unless you're a Tube driver/member of Aslef), when huge swathes of the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines go 24-hour at weekends.
Several things will disappear with it, mostly inconveniences it'll be good to see the back of, but also a few London nightlife staples and formative experiences...
1. Convenient end points for bad dates/seemingly inexorable 'work drinks'
It's 11.30pm, you're tired, hopelessly drunk on half a Kopparberg because you didn't eat dinner and you need to go home. "Gotta go, last train" will no longer be an excuse.
2. Confused drunk men in bedraggled suits standing in front of the gates of Tube stations
You know the kind, incensed by the idea of the Tube being closed as if the attendant has just suggested Wednesdays never have existed.
