Safer Travel

London can be a big daunting city for those not use to the bright lights, this can be worse when it comes to the evening and your trying to get home safely. We are lucky that London has some of the best transport links in the world, however understanding how you get from Baker Street to Harrow at 11pm can get a little confusing. Transport for London runs a campaign called Safer Travel, which promotes options for ensuring customers can be sure they are travel from one destination to another in a safe environment. Tubes run till late most evenings depending on the line. There are many taxi’s in London but be sure you are traveling in a registered taxi if not they could charge you more than normal and if something was to happen it would be hard to track and report. Apps like “Uber” and “Gett” are great as they will let you know the driver license plate. If your hailing a cab on the street make sure they have their badge on show or don’t get in! 

From Friday to Saturday the Victoria, Jubilee and most of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly line offers a 24-hour night tube. There are some buses that run all night and we recommend using apps like “Citymapper” to find what buses are located near you.

If you ever feel unsafe when traveling alone, we recommend that you find assistance at a station, there will always be a member of staff to support you. You can always text the Transport Police on 61016 to alert them on non-emergency incidents. In an emergency always call 999 or press help button located on tube platforms.
