Transport for London (TfL) has released a map showing what the night Tube will look like when the Underground begins a 24-hour weekend service in September 2015.

The service will kick-off in the early hours of 12 September to coincide with the start of the Rugby World Cup, which is hosted in England between 18 September and 31 October next year.

TfL plans to run six trains per hour through central London on the Victoria, Jubilee, and the majority of the Piccadilly, Central and Northern Line.

The busy Northern line will run eight trains per hour – helping to cope with the high footfall to and from Leicester Square and Camden Town.

The Central line will operate trains between Ealing Broadway and Hainault, and between White City and Loughton, but with no service on the West Ruislip branch.

On the Northern line, trains will run on the entire line except on the Mill Hill East and Bank branches. The Piccadilly line will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5 (with no service on the Rayners Lane/Uxbridge branch).

Meanwhile, those needing the Jubilee or Victoria trains can look forward to services running on the entire lines.

The new service is expected to reduce night time journeys by an average of 20 minutes, with some cut by more than an hour. Tfl says it will also support London's businesses, jobs and leisure opportunities.
