All Night Tube services were suspended in March 2020 when the pandemic hit but will finally return next Saturday, May 21 with the Northern and Piccadilly lines returning later this summer.

Services on the Jubilee line will run throughout the night until 5am on Fridays and Saturdays from May 21, joining the Central and Victoria lines, which resumed Night Tube services in November 2021.

TfL is running a normal service on the Victoria line each weekend and a regular service on the Central line, with at least two trains an hour, and anticipates running at least three trains an hour on the Jubilee line.
