Locate nearest shops selling booze all night
Welcome to 24 Hour Alcohol, the place to find your local 24 hour off licence and alcohol delivery service.
Use the new 24 Hour Alcohol store locator to find your nearest shop with a licence to sell booze 24 hours. Our database contains the details of all 24 hour off licences in England & Wales, including supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops, newsagents, grocery stores and petrol filling stations/garages. Over 3500 shops have been granted 24 hour alcohol licences and you can find their exact locations with our 24 hour booze locator. Now you can buy beer & wine at any time of night!
If you can’t get to a 24hr shop, take a look at 24 hour alcohol delivery to find out if you can get booze delivered instead.
Allow location services on your device or enter an address in England or Wales (unfortunately there are no 24 hour off licences in Scotland or Northern Ireland). For accurate results, it’s best to enter a full postcode or street name, rather than just the name of a town/city.
There are now no COVID-19 restrictions on alcohol sales times in Wales after the temporary Welsh alcohol curfew (between 10pm-6am) finally ended on 26 April 2021, so shops in Wales with 24 hour alcohol licences can again sell alcohol all-night, just like shops in England.
Important information about the 24 hour shops listed on this website
The 24 Hour Alcohol database contains details of all retail premises in England & Wales licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours. Just because a shop is listed as having a 24 hour alcohol licence doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are many shops licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours that have chosen not to open all night.
Where possible, we’ve listed opening times of stores in our database but as trading hours of individual shops may change from time to time, this data is for guidance only. 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. It’s always worth checking if you are going out of your way to buy booze late at night, as even 24/7 shops may occasionally close for maintenance/refurbishment or due to unforeseen circumstances. If you’re planning to visit a supermarket operated by one of the large grocery chains, you may prefer to use their store locator to check opening times, especially on public/bank holidays, during the run-up to Christmas and Easter Holidays (Good Friday, Easter Sunday, & Easter Monday) when trading hours may vary.
Please note that large 24 hour supermarkets (Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons) are not legally allowed to open 24 hours on Sundays, due to Sunday trading laws in England and Wales, so are only an option during the week and on Friday night – they aren’t any use in the early hours of Sunday morning, aka Saturday night. Smaller convenience stores, corner shops and service station forecourts are not restricted by Sunday trading regulations so are free to open 24/7. Read more about what time 24 hour supermarkets are allowed to sell alcohol and open on Sundays.
It’s also worth noting that some shops in our 24 Hour Alcohol database marked as “not currently open 24 hours” may still open late into the night, or open early in the morning, so it could be worth giving them a quick call to check if they are open at the time you are planning to visit.
The majority of 24 hour petrol stations, along with some 24 hour convenience stores, shut their shop doors at night and transactions are conducted through a night pay window/hatch.
The law which permits 24 hour drinking (Licensing Act 2003) doesn’t apply in Scotland, so there are no 24 hour off licences in Scotland. Only shops in England & Wales have the option of applying for a premises licence to sell alcohol all night.
You must be over 18 years of age to buy alcohol in the UK, however, some shops operate “Challenge 21” or “Challenge 25” schemes, where anyone that appears to be aged under 21/25 is asked for proof of age, so if that’s you, don’t forget your ID!
We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the information published on this website is accurate but 24 Hour Alcohol assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions. Please help us keep our database up to date by letting us know if you do spot incorrect data.
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.
Our 24 hour booze locator shows up to 30 shops licensed for 24 hour alcohol sales within 30 miles of your search location.
