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).
In England there are no COVID-19 restrictions on alcohol sales times in shops, so they are still permitted to sell alcohol at their usual times. Therefore supermarkets, convenience stores, petrol station forecourts & delivery services with 24 hour alcohol licences can continue to sell alcohol all night. There was a temporary alcohol sales ban in Wales between 10pm-6am every night, but it ended on 26 April 2021.

This page shows the locations of shops licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours in the City of London ONLY! To view 24 hour off licences in other areas of London, see our map of 24 hour off licences in all London boroughs. The 24 Hour Alcohol database includes all off licences (supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops and garages/petrol stations) licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day, so you can buy booze at any time of night. If you’re not in the mood to go to a shop selling alcohol 24 hours, you may be interested in ordering booze from one of London’s 24 hour alcohol delivery services operating in London around the clock, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. All night on-demand booze delivery is the most convenient way to buy alcohol and deliveries are usually completed in a matter of minutes, just like when you order takeaway food for delivery.
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 (none in 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. If you spot any errors with our database, please hit the Report Incorrect Data button to quickly let us know. Cheers!
