2. Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf has all the newest and most impressive transport links – the Jubilee Line, the DLR and Crossrail in 2018 – so it makes perfect sense that it’ll benefit from the Night Tube, too. It’s not traditionally thought of as a residential area, but the first homes were snapped up in hours when they went on sale in July.
3. Canada Water
The Jubilee Line has really done wonders for Canada Water’s profile. It’s now a popular spot for professionals commuting to Canary Wharf to work. It’s also connected to the London Overground for Tech City types commuting to Shoreditch and there’s plenty of retail therapy after work at the Surrey Quays shopping centre.
4. London Bridge
Also not normally thought of as a residential area, its profile has been significantly boosted in recent years by the arrival of The Shard and the extraordinary comeback of Borough Market. London Bridge is another intersection that is set to enjoy a double helping of Night Tube, as it also sits on the Northern Line.
If you’re an arts and culture vulture, then you’d be living the dream in Waterloo. Not only is it home to the Southbank Centre, the Royal Festival Hall, Tate Modern and the National Theatre, the Old and Young Vics are nearby and it’s home to the British Film Institute and its enormous IMAX multiplex.
6. Bond Street
Bond Street has long been revered throughout the world for its elegant retail offering. If you’re chic enough to live here, it’s likely you don’t spend much time on the Tube, but if you do then this is another stop that’s on two Night Tube Lines, the Jubilee and the Central, and it’s also being set up for Crossrail to arrive in a few years time.
This residential part of north London may look like the odd one out of this list but it’s an affordable yet up-and-coming part of town. It keeps illustrious company, with Maida Vale and West Hampstead as neighbours, there are some great Listed pubs and the Tricycle Theatre and art gallery is also a local treasure.
And here's our pick of places to hang out until the early hours – just because you can.
