24 Hour Off Licences & Booze Delivery
Welcome to 24 Hour Alcohol – Your guide to 24 hour off licences and late night alcohol delivery services in England & Wales.
At 24 Hour Alcohol you can find off licences and alcohol delivery services that are licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day, so you can buy booze late at night. All off licences and drink delivery services listed on this website are legally allowed to sell alcohol “after hours”, due to 24 hour drinking laws in England & Wales that came into effect in 2005 (Licensing Act 2003). Some establishments even offer a 24 hour alcohol delivery service.
Until 24 Hour Alcohol was launched, the problem with 24 hour off licences was that most people didn’t know where to find them, so couldn’t legitimately buy alcoholic beverages at night. When 24 hour drinking regulations were introduced in England & Wales, many pubs, bars, clubs, supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops, petrol stations and alcohol delivery services were granted permission to sell 24 hour booze, but most people had no idea how to find out where these premises were located. To solve this problem, 24 Hour Alcohol has obtained the locations of 24 hour off licences in Wales and the following parts of England: Greater London, Greater Manchester, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Bristol, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, Cornwall, County Durham, Cumbria, Derbyshire, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Merseyside, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Somerset, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex (Brighton & Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex), Tyne & Wear, Warwickshire, West Midlands, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. We hope to add 24hr off licences in other parts of northern England soon. Remember, an “off licence” is any premises that sells alcoholic beverages for consumption off the premises, so when we refer to off licences, that includes supermarkets (such as Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons etc.), convenience stores, grocery stores, petrol stations/garages etc. At the moment we don’t have any listing for 24 hour pubs, bars or nightclubs as we generally found that these types of establishments that were licensed to sell 24 hour booze didn’t actually open 24 hours a day, so spending the time compiling this information seemed pretty pointless.
Unsure what time of night your local large supermarket stops selling alcohol? See our page with details about times supermarkets such as Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons stop selling alcohol.
Don’t forget to bookmark this site, so next time you fancy a late night drink (beer, wine, spirits, champagne etc.) you can find your local 24 hr off license or beer delivery service. Please help to spread the word by sharing 24 Hour Alcohol on Facebook, Twitter etc.
24HourAlcohol.co.uk lists all 24 hour off licences… supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops, newsagents and petrol stations. We’ve also got a section dedicated to Alcohol Delivery in London, so you can order late night drinks for home delivery almost anywhere in London. The beer delivery and alcohol delivery companies can be very handy late at night if you want booze delivered direct to your home. Booze delivery is also available in Essex, Kent, Bristol, Manchester, Preston, Blackpool, Chester & Wirral, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Norwich, Luton, Milton Keynes, Slough, Swindon, Southampton, Taunton & Yeovil, Watford & St Albans (some alcohol delivery companies don’t open 24 hours, but they do open all night, so are handy when you feel like a drink after hours). You may have heard the latest news that Just Eat removed drinks delivery services from their website but don’t worry because you can still order alcohol from the Late Night Drink Delivery section of Hungry House, which offers online ordering in an almost identical way to Just Eat.
There are currently 575 24 hour off licences in London, so you shouldn’t have far to travel when you want to buy booze at night. There are also many alcohol delivery services open all night in London.
We’ve been adding 24 hour off licences in other parts of the UK (see the menu for areas covered) and hope to add even more soon, so if your area is not yet covered; watch this space!
Please Note: Just because a shop is listed as having a 24 hour alcohol licence doesn’t necessarily mean that the shop is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. It’s up to each individual shop to decide whether or not it uses its 24 hour alcohol licence. It’s also worth noting that large 24 hour supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda) are not open all night on Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays (due to Sunday trading laws in England and Wales), so are only useful (for 24 hour alcohol) on weekdays or Friday nights. We’ve tried to list the phone number for each 24 hour off licence so you can confirm opening times before setting off on your quest for 24 hour booze.
Please get in touch if you have any suggestions or come across any 24 hour off licences that aren’t using their 24 hour liquor licence (ie. they are not selling alcohol at night, even though they are licensed to).
Thanks for visiting 24 Hour Alcohol, the only UK website that lists 24 hour off licences. Please always drink responsibly and never ever drink and drive.
