London is one of the world’s great capitals, a financial, political and cultural powerhouse that would take a lifetime to fully explore.
Iconic sights and world-famous museums are just part of the appeal; London is a city where it’s exciting just to be there, tapping into its restless rhythms and wandering its storied streets.
London at night transforms into an all-inclusive, anything-goes party where you can find club nights and events to suit any and every taste. Cocktail bars that ooze style, dancefloors lit up by world-famous DJs and gig venues showcasing up-and-coming acts ensure this diversity of things to do when the sun goes down. Among the places to visit and things to see around London, this atmosphere is one you don't want to miss!
To start off our guide to nightlife in London, is the O2 Arena. Sitting on a bend of the Thames, this gigantic venue hosts the biggest names in music from around the world.
Yet head to Camden or Shoreditch and you’ll find that the venues get smaller and more intimate, while the acts get more alternative.
The clubbing scene is equally diverse. Super-clubs like Ministry of Sound and Heaven bring in huge crowds for themed nights, but many Londoners prefer seeking out smaller clubs for a more tailored night out.
Soho is the traditional LGBTQ+ heart of London, but the city is, in general, very welcoming to partygoers of every stripe.
London hosts one of the biggest Pride events in the world, too, offering some of the best LGBTQ+ nights out in the year.
There’s always something happening in London.
Even if bars and clubs aren’t to your taste, you don't need to look far for what's on as you can always take your pick of comedy nights, operas, classical concerts and theatrical performances throughout the city.
