The London Night Time Commission believes that London can provide so much more at night: in neighbourhoods, workplaces, high streets and public spaces. The Think Night report sets out how London can work better for all Londoners from 6pm to 6am, helping people to live their lives more fully.
London is a world class city and merits world-leading thoughts on all aspects of life at night. The London Night Time Commission was set up to build on London’s strengths as a city that thrives from 6pm to 6am.
Londoners are more active at night and have later bedtimes than anyone else in the UK. Two-thirds regularly do everyday activities at night like running errands, shopping and catching up with friends. A staggering one-third of London’s workforce also work at night.
