There you go, folks, the moment you've all been waiting for: the London Underground is set to run 24 hours on weekends as of 2015.

This is the first step of the "night tube" service, that should begin in 2015 serving the Piccadilly, Victoria, Central, Northern and Jubilee lines. According to London mayor Boris Johnson, the move will would "boost jobs and our vibrant night-time economy" and "further cement London's reputation as the best big city on the planet to in which to live, work, visit and invest."

London Underground managing director says that their vision "is for a tube network and service that is truly fit for London and our customers in the 21st century—a better face-to-face service at our stations, a 24-hour service at weekends, with easier and more personalised ways to plan and pay for journeys, on and off our network."
