24 Hour Off Licences in London
Locate your nearest shop licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours. In London, there are off licences (supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops, grocery stores, newsagents, petrol station forecourts etc.) that sell alcohol all night and now you can find their locations here on the 24 Hour Alcohol website.
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.

Don’t fancy walking to an all night off licence? Then order booze from one of many companies now offering alcohol delivery in London.
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!

The off licences listed on 24 Hour Alcohol have 24 hr alcohol licences so are legally allowed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day, however, 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 doesn’t have to stay open all night). It’s also worth noting that large 24 hour supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda) are not open all night on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays (this is due to Sunday trading laws in England and Wales), so are only an option on weekdays or Friday nights/Saturday mornings. Sunday trading restrictions don’t apply to convenience stores, which means they can open 24/7 if they wish. Where possible, we’ve included opening times of premises but these should only be used as a guide, as shops may change their opening hours at any time (please let us know if you spot any errors). 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 in the middle of the night. Don’t forget to bookmark 24HourAlcohol.co.uk so next time you need alcohol after hours, you’ll know where to find your local 24 hour offie.
