What is it about the night that we love so much? Heralded by the beauty of a sunset, the impending darkness seems to both excite and exhilarate us, as we wait for the moon to rise, then brighten, before making its breathtaking way across the ever-blackening sky. The noise and busyness of the day recede, and – even in the city – a quieter, lower hum takes over, calming us while, at the same time, filling us with anticipation of the delights that only show themselves once the sun goes down.
There are probably not many cities in the world where the night is so magically embraced as it is in London. Like New York, her sister across the Atlantic, London seldom sleeps, becoming more and more a 24-hour city. London is truly a city of night owls, with around a quarter of her residents regularly only going to bed after midnight. Night buses, the night tube, theatre performances, late-night shopping…they all contribute to the seductive buzz of a city gearing up for another night of wonder.
Unlike many big cities, London maintains her mystery and allure at night. There is always something different on offer. New tastes, sounds, sights and smells to experience and exclaim over. And then, of course, there are the lights! Paris has long laid claim to the title of the City of Lights, but you only have to look down upon London at night from a lofty vantage point in one of her iconic skyscrapers to instantly question Paris’ assertion. London is, arguably, even more beautiful at night than it is in the daytime, with all her most famous landmarks spectacularly showcased along the city skyline.

Private Museum Or Gallery Visit
London is home to some of the world’s most important museums. The British Museum, famous for the Elgin Marbles and the Rosetta Stone, which dates from 196BC. The National Gallery, located in the very heart of Trafalgar Square and filled with the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Boticelli, Monet, Cezanne and Van Gogh, among others. The Tate Modern, where you can wonder at the works of Picasso, Miro and Roy Lichtenstein. Wander at your leisure, unhurried by thronging crowds, through the imposing halls and chambers, absorbing centuries of history and knowledge. Enjoy the services of a private, expert curator who will guide you through the works and exhibits that sparkle with magic and beauty.
You can even spend a night at the museum, prefaced by a truly unique, private, fine dining experience. Enjoy an evening of gastronomic delights, fine wines and wonderful entertainment, or enjoy a Champagne tasting master class delivered by a notable Sommelier.
The Tower Of London
Follow in the footsteps of Kings and Queens as the gates of this 1000-year-old fortress open exclusively for you, and a charismatic Yeoman Warder welcomes you into his inner sanctum. Follow him as he guides you through the hallowed grounds towards The Treasury of the Crown Jewels, where a champagne reception and private viewing of the breathtaking Crown Jewels awaits.
Add to the wonder of the evening by enjoying Michelin Star private fine dining within the ancient Tower walls. Dine surrounded by crowns from the Royal Collection, or within the beautifully unique Medieval Palace, and enjoy uplifting music from musicians whose playing serves to enhance the ambience of the evening.
Glass Walkway At Tower Bridge
Enjoy the breathtaking experience of walking across the spectacular, high-level glass floor walkways of Tower Bridge. Take in your own private, birds-eye view of London life from almost 140ft above the River Thames.
