How do you see Sadiq Khan's 24 hour vision for London? A vibrant, open-all-hours city or a potential source of rubbish and noise caused by local pubs and clubs? If it's the latter, the latest efforts from City Hall to turn 24 hour London into a civilised affair will be of interest.
Theatres, museums, shops and safe travel are all priorities in the ongoing attempt to boost London's night-time economy, and its place as a world-leading capital city.
Taking in an exhibition on your break from the nightshift sounds fantastic in principle. But what will the reality mean for those of us that rent or own property in Mayfair or Soho, close to the West End?
If nothing else, it's encouraging to hear that a good night's sleep is included in the list of attractions that London should be famous for.
Dexters believe peaceful central London property can always be found just round the corner from all the action. So If you'd like to know more, why not visit our Mayfair office? You can contact us anytime between 8am and 8pm.
London’s theatres, museums and art galleries could soon be open late into the night, if plans outlined by Mayor Sadiq Khan are realised. The Mayor of London outlined a ‘24-hour vision for London’ this week, which aims to make the capital “a trailblazing city at night, competing with the likes of Berlin, Tokyo and New York”. “Today’s vision isn’t just about pubs and clubs – it’s about everything from museums and theatres opening later, being able to do your weekly shop after an evening shift, through to the safety of Londoners working and travelling at night and residents being able to get a good night’s sleep,” he said on Tuesday.
