24 hour off licences in the City of London

Welcome to 24 Hour Alcohol, the place to find your local 24 hour off licence and all night alcohol delivery service in the City of London (CoL).

Temporary COVID-19 restrictions on alcohol sales times do NOT apply to shops in England, which are still permitted to sell alcohol at their usual times, even during lockdown. So supermarkets, convenience stores & petrol station forecourts with 24 hour alcohol licences can continue to sell alcohol all night. In Wales, all shops must stop selling alcohol between 10pm-6am every night.

Please note that Tesco & Asda are the only large supermarket chains that usually operate 24 hour stores but both companies stopped opening all night at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Around half of all Asda stores that opened 24 hours pre-coronavirus have returned to 24 hour trading. Tesco only resumed 24 hour opening at some superstores in the run up to Christmas but have now gone back to reduced opening hours at all but 7 stores in the whole of England & Wales. Many other 24 hour shops in our database are still open for business as usual, however, some retailers reduced their opening times during lockdown, therefore we highly recommend phoning ahead to check that your local 24hr shop is open as normal to avoid a wasted journey.

Please Note: Just because a shop has applied for, and been granted, a 24 hour alcohol licence, doesn't necessarily mean that it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In some areas, there are many shops that have decided not to open all night, even though they are licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours. It's also worth noting that on Sundays, large supermarkets over 3000 sq ft (Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Iceland etc.) are only permitted to open for a maximum of six hours due to Sunday trading laws in England and Wales, therefore large 24 hour supermarkets can only open all-night on week nights and Friday nights - don't get caught out after 11:59pm on a Saturday night! Some large Tesco supermarkets (usually Tesco Extra branches) open at one minute past midnight on Monday morning (aka Sunday night). Where possible, we've listed opening times of stores but these should only be used as a guide, as trading hours of individual shops may change from time to time. 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. If you're planning to visit a 24 hour supermarket operated by one of the large supermarket chains, you may prefer to use their store locator to check opening times, especially on bank holidays and during Coronavirus lockdowns. Every effort has been made to ensure the information published on this website is correct but 24 Hour Alcohol assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions. Please let us know if you do spot any errors, either by using the contact form, error reporting facility or by calling us on 020 8144 2424. If there isn't a shops open around-the-clock near you, it may still be possible to almost instantly get alcohol after hours from a local on-demand delivery service.
