The Northern line night tube reopens on the evening of Saturday 2 July, for the first time since being suspended in March 2020 due to the pandemic.

The service will serve the Northern line's Edgware, High Barnet, Charing Cross and Morden branches (as per prior to the pandemic), but not the Mill Hill East, Battersea Power Station and Bank branches.

The news follows the reopening of night tube services on the Central and Victoria lines in November 2021 and the Jubilee line in May 2022.

The Piccadilly line night tube is also expected to return later this summer.

Nick Dent, TfL's Director of Customer Operations said: "Night tube provides a safe and quick travel option for all Londoners and visitors looking to make the most of all the capital has to offer in the evenings, and those who need to travel to or from work at night."

As tends to be the case with London transport, however, it's not all plain sailing. Ongoing RMT night tube strike — happening now until 4 December — mean a reduced service on the Central, Jubilee and Northern lines. TfL says to expect "very minimal disruption."
